Fuego's first release in the U.S. was "Whatcha Say", the debut single by American recording artist Jason Derulo, produced in collaboration with J. R. Rotem and samples the song "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap. "Whatcha Say" topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, becoming Fuego's first number-one hit. With over 30 million MySpace plays and 3 million iTunes downloads it remains one of the biggest hits of 2009. He has also produced Chris Brown's first single from his 2012 album, Fortune, called Turn Up the Music. The song is an electropop and dance-pop song. It's a collaboration with production duo The Underdogs. The song debuted at Number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was well received by most music critics, who praised its production and called it a "party anthem", "an epic dance-pop track" which "sounds like an absolute smash to us and definitely, at the very least, a No. 1 Club Play hit." and "is bound to become the soundtrack for clubgoers everywhere", also saying, "With its mercilessly pounding jungle beats and super-sick synth, 'Turn Up The Music' deserves to be played at maximum decibels." "Turn Up The Music" was performed live at the 54th Grammy Awards and during the halftime show at the NBA All-Star Game 2012. Later Rihanna's vocal was added and premiered online as "Turn Up The Music (Remix)" on February 20, 2012. (en)
