Fuego’s New Single “4,5,6” Is a Reminder That He Does Trap-en-Español Like No One Else

On his latest track, from his upcoming Fireboy Forever III project, Fuego walks us through the comings and goings of an artist who has reached trapero stardom. Specifically, the Dominican rapper implores us to take note and keep count of the women he chooses to spend his time with – in plush Miami living quarters, no less.

Like a trapped-out episode of Sesame Street, Fuego chants, “cuatro, cinco, seis, como Kim Kardashian,” reminding us of 1) the era when you had to do math without the help of a cell phone and 2) the omnipotence of the Kardashian empire.

Over a high-impact production from Luyo and Xavierhashits – the kind you might expect from contemporaries like Metro Boomin’ – Fuego wastes no time or effort. He leaps straight into the chorus and, from the jump, lets you know what “4,5,6” is about – the flex.

With his latest output, Fireboy delivers another banger. It’s fitting (and pretty good marketing) that, just as the snow melts and the summer sun suddenly doesn’t seem so far away, Fuego blesses the streets with his latest heat. Fuego is one of the godfathers of the growing trap-en-español movement and, if nothing else, “4,5,6” is a 150-second reminder that he still does it better than everybody else.
