For bilingual hip-hop fans, Fuego’s Spanish remixes of current rap favorites are a treat and basically another reason to crank up the volume. The Dominican-American singer’s first translated track was a rework of the lovelorn, catchy-as-hell Drake single “Hotline Bling.” Now, he’s dropped the Spanish remix of Yo Gotti and Young Thug’s “Rihanna.” Keeping true to the original lyrics, Fuego describes una Rihanna as a ride-or-die, day-one type of girl. His voice and the beat complement each other well, much like they did in “Cuando Suena El Bling.” Fuego’s on a roll with these cover tracks. Let’s see which one he’ll tackle next.
This rework might just be better than Young Thug’s English version, since we can’t understand what Young Thug is saying anyway. Yay or nay? Sound off in the comments.
