Speaking about the process of making his song Peru, Fireboy said that he was tipsy while in the studio and decided to try something in the booth and came out with the song “Peru”.

“It was my first time in the United States and I was supposed to go and see my associates at the empire and just vibe; pay a courtesy visit to Shizzi who produced the song in his studio. At the studio that night, I was tipsy and I just got in the booth.

He played the beat. I was like, ‘Um, that’s a vibe.’ And in 30 minutes to 35 minutes, I was literally just singing my story. It’s just a young boy that found himself in a new place and is willing to just try out new stuff.”
