Digital FORT: Fuego gives us an update on his new album

“I left the trap sounds for my album in the winter — that’s a winter sound.”

Digital FORT Day 1 is now over, and this video has been removed from The FADER.

Dominican rapper Fuego has been busy since The FADER went to meet him for a Gen F feature back in 2017, releasing two new albums in Libre: Fireboy Forever and You’re Welcome. Now he’s gearing up to release another, NightShift, in the coming weeks. In a clip submitted exclusively to Digital FORT from the studio, Fuego gives us an update on its sound. “When this is all over we will be able to dance to it,” he says in Spanish. “This album has reggaeton but some afro beat sounds, which is a new sound from me. On this occasion i did everything I could to get people dancing and enjoying, and I left the trap sounds for my album in the winter — that’s a winter sound.”
