Fareed El Boricua Arabe - 'Trapped'

Review written by Victoria Scott & Staff

“Trapped” is a salsa, electronic, hip-hop and trap song by Fareed El Boricua Arabe. The intro draws you in with an addictive heavy trap and salsa beat.The audio tune in the vocals, cool rap flow, and energetic chorus complement each other for a song that is ready for the charts.

Production by Junior Galan and DJ Flex has a banging club vibe. The electronic salsa beat at the beginning with trendy audio tune vocals adds a dynamic layer to the heavy bass and drumbeat. The contagious hook is so strong - it was a hit before it was released.

The song describes a woman who mesmerizes and traps men. This is a woman who loves the dollar more than she loves you. She chews men up and spits them out. The chorus describes a man who is trapped in her maze, “Oh, oh, I’m trapped, she got me lost in her maze.” Throughout the song, Fareed demonstrates he is equally skilled at R & B style singing as he is rapping the mic showcasing his slick rap flow and combining both styles of vocals to make this song ultra alluring.

"Trapped" is a versatile song that could easily be a radio-hit, a chart-topper, a party favorite or a lit club mix. This is the kind of track that can be put out many times, even with a strong EDM remix, and listeners will never tire of hearing it. The killer beat and fantastically catchy chorus will have you bumping up your speakers and singing along . Fareed has a clear vision that he executes flawlessly and based on the contagious vibe of this song, there is no doubt that he is an artist to watch in 2020 and for years to come.
