Miguel A Duran, Jr., also known as Fuego (or Fireboy), was born on September 24th, 1981 in Washington D.C., to Dominican parents.
He was raised in Maryland and grew up listening to salsa and merengue artists, such as Frankie Ruiz, Juan Luis Guerra and Hector Lavoe, thanks to his father. As he got older, his friends introduced him to American Hip Hop and artists such as 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, became favorites.
In the 90s, Fuego formed a group called 3men2 (Tremendo) along with his friends and his brother, and started performing at local venues. After the group disbanded, he continued performing solo. In 2004, Fuego opened a concert at a local night club where Daddy Yankee and Plan B were headlining. Chencho, one of the members of Plan B, saw that he was talented and quickly took him as his pupil.
Fuego then signed to the label Chosen Few, with which he released the hit songs "Mi Alma Se Muere", "Que Buena Tu Ta" and "Una Vaina Loca", which quickly became a hit on YouTube, garnering over 20 Million views.
He released his first album, "La Música Del Futuro", in 2010, followed by the reloaded version, in 2012. In 2013, he released the compilation "Super Exitos". The following year, he put out the mixtape "Fireboy Forever". His latest album, "Fireboy Forever II", was released in 2016, and contained the hits "35 Pa Las 12" ft. J Balvin, "Se Te Nota", "Cien", among others.
Fuego is currently signed under Pitbull's record label, Mr. 305 Inc.
