African-Australian artist Manu Crooks debuts his highly anticipated new track “Fuego” featuring Anfa Rose and was produced by DOPAM!NE.
Manu Crooks turns up the heat with his new single, “Fuego” with fellow Australian artist Anfa Rose. The latin song title is appropriate for the due to the use of the sample of “Meu Mundo e Hoje” by Eliete Negriera eloquently incorporated by producer DOPAM!NE. Manu’s cool & cocky style is reminiscent of legendary hip-hop lady lovers like the Notorious B.I.G. and LL Cool J. As his career continues to blossom his relationship with an anonymous woman is slowly diminishing. He raps, “I know what I did eventually drove you crazy/ No lie, you are number one my lady/ You was way back before the navy Mercedes.” Manu reaffirms his commitment because she’s held him down since day one, but more importantly, because she’s “Fuego” (fire). Anfa Rose drives home this notion with a sultry hook that flows gracefully over the beat.
