(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW: TATTOO BY FIREBOY DML “NOW YOU KNOW WHY HE BEARS THE NAME FIREBOY!”

Fireboy is signed to YBNL, a record label owned by Olamide aka Baddo. Somehow, he also likes to sing about sex with women (In a coded way) in most of his songs; his lyrics always have sexual undertones.

Regardless of his sexual lyrics, Fireboy DML has really got loads of fire in him; he is hot. His lyrics are well written; they are always on point. He has been churning out great songs back to back, and they are all hits. I am really impressed with his dexterity; he is blazing. He is Fireboy! Winks

WHAT IS THE SONG TATTOO BY FIREBOY ABOUT

The word “Tattoo” means an image or text about someone or something imprinted on the skin with ink and a needle.

The song is about the artiste’s intense feeling for a lady who also has intense feelings for him, but, she is trying to hide it. However, their intense feelings for each other are sexually driven. This is evident in the video. The video is sexual but interesting to watch though.

The use of “tattoo on your body” may connote having a lasting impression on someone “sexually”; never fading or leaving one’s memory.

Lyrically: I really don’t understand the arrangement of the song, but, going by the layout on Ogefash photoblog, the chorus and pre-chorus were taken twice. The song has only one verse which was repeated.

The lyrics are interesting, repetitive and have sexual undertones. View the lines that have sexual undertones below

“When you need that bamboo; just call on me (When you need bamboo; just call on me)
Let me be beside you (Let me be beside you)
Or maybe inside you (Or maybe inside you)
Make I put am for your body ( Let me put it inside your body)”

The word bamboo in the context of this song means sex.  The artiste sang in Pidgin and the lyrics flowed well on the beat.

Vocal: Fireboy’s vocal was clear and expressive. He has an appealing vocal. His vocal is soothing and very interesting to the ears. He was consistent with the vocal quality

Melody:  Melodic! The rhythm flows well. The artiste was consistent with the style of rhythm. The tune is also varied. The major instrument used in the composition of the song includes drum and piano.
