Argentine trap (also known as Argentine trap) is a style of Latin trap that originated in Argentina. The genre takes influence from Hardcore rap and southern hip hop, gaining popularity after 2018, and has since spread throughout Argentina and South America. Argentine trap is really different to Spanish trap mainly because it is more hardcore rhythm in Argentina than it is in Latin America.
Argentine trap became popular around 2017/18 with artists like Duki, who at just 22 years old boasts over 47 million views with his single ‘Si Te Sentís Sola.’ As one of Argentina’s biggest names in trap, Duki combines rhythms found in both reggaetón and rap; his music is a unique blend of trap’s tough original sounds and more rhythmic electronic Latin American genres. Córdoba-born Paulo Londra is another young trap artist. Still living with his parents, the 20-year old rose to fame back in January 2017 with his single ‘Relax.’ Countering aggressive stereotypes often associated with trap music, Londra is keen to do things his way. His songs, which are all about positivity, good vibes, and gratitude, avoid the usual trap references to violence and drugs. Keen to push the boundaries and stray beyond the boxes of traditional trap, he’s probably the most polite trap artist around. Having already worked with the likes of Bad Bunny and J Balvin, his videos often push the view count beyond the 100 million mark. Two years after the release of "Loca" and "She Don't Give a FO," the songs that led Argentine trap to the mainstream, Duki and Khea join forces once again in a track that, as its name spoils, is already a hit. "Hitboy" was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated Latin trap singles of 2019. Not only because the return of the first two Argentinian artists surpassed 100 million views on YouTube, but also because of the evolution of these two rappers in the skyrocketing advance of trap. Duki and Khea chose Dimeloasan to produce the song's beat. And unlike "Loca," where Khea was in charge of the catchy chorus featuring Bad Bunny, or "She Don't Give a FO," in which the sentimentality of Duki's vocal cords breaks the unbreakable, in "Hitboy," the duo takes another path. One that marks a new north in Argentine trap, where the Latin reggaeton essence cannot be traced and the compass approaches the worlds of Travis Scott, Lil Pump or A$AP Rocky.
