Puerto Rico’s Farruko and Cuba’s El Micha have dropped a dancehall-influenced reggaeton heater called “Fuego.” The track samples and interpolates classic dancehall tracks throughout, most notably Junior Reid’s 1989 anthem, “One Blood.”
A staple in the reggaeton scene, Farruko has been a crucial figure in the Latin trap scene. His Bad Bunny-assisted anthem “Krippy Kush” has crossed over in the US thanks to a remix featuring Nicki Minaj and 21 Savage.

Puerto Rican singer Farruko has enlisted Nicki Minaj and 21 Savage for the official remix of his Latin trap anthem “Krippy Kush” featuring Bad Bunny and Rvssian. The original has become one of the most successful tracks of the genre, which continues to gain momentum.
According to Billboard, “the song debuted at No. 20 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart and reached No. 5 without any major radio airplay.” The chart has traditionally been dominated by reggaeton and pop.

As part of their A Brief History Of series, Billboard spoke with some of the biggest names in Latin trap music to discuss the history of the genre.
Puerto Rican rapper De La Ghetto agrees, saying in the video that Bunny is “the most important trap artist right now.” Bunny was recently featured on the remix of Major Lazer‘s hit single “Know No Better.” On Friday, rising New York rapper Cardi B enlisted Messiah for a remix of her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow.”
“[Trap is] the closest expression to the streets and to the way the new generation is living,” Farruko says in the clip.
“What people were doing was a small imitation of what American artists were doing,” Bad Bunny says. “They took American hits and turned them into their songs.”
