In the early hours of Friday the 29th of November, Fireboy dropped his anticipated album, Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps. Scatter is the third track on the album. The up-tempo Afro-pop record was produced by Pheelz. Fireboy also served a sizzling visual to match. The video was directed by Clarence Peters.
Fireboy DML went out of his comfort zone and made another place his comfort zone; the true definition of an artist.
The song was inspired by Micheal Jackson's fast-pop infused with Afro-urban sounds. Pheelz created a blissful up-tempo instrumental with Thriller-like chords and gory afro-pop drum patterns. Fireboy's vocals matched the energy of the record. His vocals were clear, audible and had the emotional resonance that befitted the plot of the song. Scatter is a song about his self-confidence in his ability to move a party. This song should have been the intro of the album, to prepare us for what is to come.
The song needed harmony, lots of it. The song was too monotonous to not have harmonies for aesthetic purposes.
