Nevertheless, Ferxxo – as some affectionately name him – has grown into considerably of an emblematic determine, representing his house metropolis with an alluring and emotive sound that’s idolized far past the forests of Antioquia.
So when “Nitro Jam” lastly arrived at La Macarena, fulfilling what the Medellín artist has known as one in every of his greatest targets, the singer was met with a hanging response.
Though Feid didn’t hit the stage till round 11 p.m., the ferocious sing-along to tracks by Dangerous Bunny, Plan B and Don Omar set the tone for the remainder of the night time.

As the sector lights dimmed, Feid’s silhouette appeared within the middle of a white curtain, which fell as the primary notes of the fiery “Regular” began to play. Two DJs and two bikes had been positioned on both facet of the stage; on the suitable was guitarist Pedro Mejía (who later performed the instrument behind his head).
Pyrotechnics flared as Feid dove into two extra tracks and after, as he addressed the viewers at size for the primary time that night time, a inexperienced cake was handed to him for the introduction of “Feliz Cumpleanos Ferxxo,” a single launched simply final month in honor of his thirtieth birthday. As an alternative of protecting the cake to himself, he tried to seek out somebody celebrating a birthday within the crowd, however discovered it inconceivable to make sense of any feedback from the group.

Later, a squad of twerking background dancers helped give life to “XXXX,” and because the night time drew to a detailed, Ferxxo teased followers with extra cuts from his upcoming venture.
“Ought to we heat up our voices to sing ‘Ferxxo 100’ or not? Since you sing it extra chimba than me,” he mentioned, nearly immediately firing up the group to observe orders and end the final strains of the brand new monitor on their very own.
“Ferxxo 100” is among the singles for Feid’s subsequent album, which can be launched by way of Common Music Latino in December.
