Fire In The Field – New Single “Under the Sun” Out Now

well the sun is warm
the wind is cold
just you and me sittin’ under the sky
lettin’ time grow old
already see the look in your eye
wanna get some lovin’ done

well the moon is chill
your body is hot
the crescent seam of your property
you know I’ll mess with it not
unless you make me fess up, stand up and shout
girl I love you so

right here under the moon

On ‘Anybody,’ (Burna Boy) commands the same amount of attention whether he’s humming or speeding it up for a smooth-talking rap verse.”
