This Is What Maluma’s ‘Felices Los 4’ Means in English: Lyric Translation

Who doesn’t sing Maluma’s “Felices Los 4” when is being played on the radio? There’s something about the song that makes most people just listen over and over without getting tired of it.

“Felices,” written by Maluma, Servando Primera, Mario Cáceres and Miky La Sensa and produced by hitmakers Los Rude Boyz, became Maluma’s first charting song on Billboard’s Hot 100 as a solo act (peaking at no. 48 on the chart dated Aug. 5) and his sixth No.1 hit on Latin Airplay chart. Also, the song was nominated as Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the Latin Grammys.

Despite Maluma’s tremendously successful year, some people have been offended by the “Felices los 4” lyric — but this is hardly the first time that the Colombian superstar has gone through such controversy. His previous song “Cuatro Babys” was criticized to the point that people started online petitions for its removal from streaming services.

At the time, Maluma reacted, posting, “You’ll always be judged for one thing or another. Just do what comes out of your heart, what makes you happy. If they talked about Jesus Christ, why would it surprise you to have them talk about you?”.

Now, what does “Felices Los 4” really mean? Read the English translation below.

********

Maluma baby

The sun has barely come out and you leave running
I know that you’ll think that this is hurting me
I’m not thinking about what you’re doing
If we belong to other people
and this is how we care for each other

If you stay with me
Or leave with someone else
I don’t give a fuck
Because I know you’ll return

And if you spend some time with someone else
We are going to be happy, we are going to be happy
Happy all four of us
We’ll make the room bigger for you

And if you spend some time with someone else
We are going to be happy, we are going to be happy
Happy all four of us
I accept the deal
And we’ll do it another time

And we’ll do it another time
What we have isn’t dependent on a pact
Enjoy and just feel the impact
The boom boom that burns you, that mermaid’s body
Calm, I don’t believe in contracts
(And nor do you)

And every time she goes away, she returns to me
And happy all four of us, it doesn’t matter what they’ll say, we like it like this

And every time she goes away, she returns to me
And happy all four of us, it doesn’t matter what they’ll say, we’re two of a kind

And if you spend some time with someone else
We are going to be happy, we are going to be happy
Happy all four of us
We’ll make the room bigger for you

And if you spend some time with someone else
We are going to be happy, we are going to be happy
Happy all four of us
I accept the deal
And we’ll do it another time

If you stay with me
Or leave with someone else
I don’t give a fuck
Because I know you’ll return

And if you spend some time with someone else
We are going to be happy, we are going to be happy
Happy all four of us
We’ll make the room bigger for you

And if you spend some time with someone else
We are going to be happy, we are going to be happy
Happy all four of us
I accept the deal
And we’ll do it another time

And every time she goes away, she returns to me
(Maluma baby)
It doesn’t matter what they’ll say, we like it like this
(Kevin ADG, Chan El Genio)
And every time she goes away, she returns to me
(The secret code)
It doesn’t matter what they’ll say, we’re two of a kind
This is faith baby
