"Cuatro Babys" is a song by Colombian singer Maluma featuring Puerto Rican rappers Noriel, Bryant Myers, and Juhn. The song is taken from the album Trap Capos: Season 1 (2016). It was released as the album's first single on 7 October 2016 through Sony Music Latin. Maluma co-wrote the track with Myers, Noriel, Jorge J. Hernández, Jorge Fonseca, John Pérez and Sharon Ramírez. It was produced by Santana the Golden Boy.[1] The song peaked at number 21 in Colombia and number 15 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.

Controversy[edit]

This song has received much controversy over its lyrics as they arguably appear to suggest direct violence towards women. A petition was posted on Change.org demanding for the removal of the song from digital platforms.[2] Despite this controversy, the popularity of "Cuatro Babys" has only risen with the song having gone quadruple Platinum.[3] Because of this, Latin trap has had a large, but primarily underground, following.
