The Latin Fury! Song Spotlight Series takes a closer look at the songs that are part of the show.
This song spotlight is on “Hot Hot Hot”!
“Hot Hot Hot” was the musical gift bestowed upon us from Arrow, who popularized soca and calypso from his native Montserrat.
The title track from his 1982 album of the same name, “Hot Hot Hot” sent Arrow into the Top 60 of the UK Singles Chart in 1984 and after a World Carnival Mix was released in 1994, he returned to cracked the top 40 and also the Top 10 of the ARIA Charts.
The breezy, fun-loving nature of “Hot Hot Hot” crossed over into the US Hot 100 and Hot Dance Club Play market thanks to David Johansen who recorded the song in 1987 as is alter-ego Buster Poindexter. Don Omar later revived the track with a reggaeton sound and a new title “Feeling Hot” in 2013, where it cracked the Top 25 of the US Billboard Hot Latin Charts.
“Hot Hot Hot” stands the test of time as an undeniably catchy song that brings audiences to their feet to sing and dance and join the part.
Latin Fury! performs “Hot Hot Hot” regularly at live shows. Here’s a look at it from our PBS Special:
