FIREBOY DML Discloses His Headspace When Recording ‘Jealous’ On Inspiration 92.3FM
Considering the unprecedented media visibility surrounding Fireboy DML – a combination of his massive billboard advert on Lagos most-busiest Toll gate (The Lekki Toll gate), coupled with the overwhelming mad love for his music from fans in all the nooks and crannies in Nigeria and the neighboring countries, one does not need rocket science to understand why Angie – the OAP at Inspiration 92.3 FM who interviewed him on the 4th of April 2019, asked the question,
“What’s the story behind the successful ‘Jealous’ and talk us through your though process when recording the song?“
“Without sounding cliché, ‘Jealous’ is a song that tells it own story. The legend of the song is true life – My life. My encounter with love – a passionate love affair with a lady friend that spiral from giving everything for it survival to watching it metamorphosed into an uncontrollable obsession about losing it. The joy and the pain from that experience was all that went into writing the song.
My headspace leading to recording the song – with the reality of the message playing in my head, the melody followed and Cracker Mallo – the incredible music producer laced a #badass beat. Recording Jealous was genuine and fulfilling.
