Famous trap singers you can't miss
Trap is a fairly recent musical genre. It is derived from trap and has its origins in the south of the United States. However, the trappers who are doing it big right now come especially from Spanish-speaking countries.
Current English trap singers focus more on other genres, such as rap or hip hop. For that reason, in this article we will focus on famous trap singers who make trap their main genre and their signature. In this article you will find the men. However,women do trap too!
The famous trap singers we present to you are:

The real name of the rapper Duki is Mauro Ezequiel Lombardo Quiroga. He was born in Argentina in the year 1996 and, since 2016 he has been petándolo in genres such as rap, hip hop and regetón, but he stands out especially for his trap music.
The release of the single"She Don't Give a FO" was what led him to fame and worldwide recognition. As of May 2022, it is a song that continues to rank in the charts in many countries. It wasn't until 2019 that he released a full studio album, but that didn't stop him from being recognized worldwide.

Another famous trap singer is Paulo Ezequiel Londra, better known simply as Paulo Londra. Also born in Argentina, in the year 1998, this trap singer reached the top in the year 2019. Paulo Lonra reached the top when he released his studio album"Homerun", which includes songs like"Adán y Eva","Forever Alone","Tal Vez" or"Por eso vine". The album was a success but, after that, Paulo had to take a break from music.
This was due to a serious legal dispute with the record company he had signed with. Paulo would say that the label swindled him to keep the full rights to his songs. The case was taken to court, which resulted in a pause in Paulo Londra's musical career: he could not release songs until the trial was resolved.
