Nashville, TN (July 31, 2020)
After setting the Christian hip-hop community ablaze with the Latin-flavored “Fuego,” Steven Malcolm is reigniting the fire all over again. This time, he’s joined by Grammy-winning reggae/dancehall superstar Shaggy for the larger-than-life “Fuego Remix,” unveiling a new side of the hit single along the way.

Together, Steven Malcolm and Shaggy turn “Fuego Remix” into a summertime anthem that crosses borders and blends genres. American hip-hop, Latin guitars, and Caribbean rhythms collide, with the two artists both taking turns at the microphone. The result is a collaboration that’s every bit as cinematic as the accompanying music video, which finds Malcolm and Shaggy making their way through a cityscape at night, pursued by a crime boss and her pack of henchmen. Directed by Tyler Dunning Evans (whose work includes Malcolm’s “Summertime” and the Steve Aoki/Backstreet Boys duet “Let It Be Me”), the video premiered on UK Music News.

“Shaggy brought that Jamaican patois to ‘Fuego,’ and added a different vibe to it,” says Malcolm, whose own Jamaican roots—the product of a father who was born in Montego Bay—have inspired albums like The Second City. “The song already has Latin guitars in it, so he came in there and added his Caribbean spice. This song is about to be legendary! It’s about to be fuego.”

Produced by and featuring Social House’s Anderson “Scootie” Michael, the “Fuego Remix” single marks the latest project from Steven Malcolm, whose unique brand of CHH has resulted in multiple award nominations, more than 41 million on-demand streams, and an acclaimed live show, with the rapper performing for more than 1 million people to date. It also finds him breathing new life into a song that has already racked up more than 2 million Spotify streams and 1.2 million YouTube views during its original run.
