Question Bien Sudao'

There is a song by Tony Dize called "Bien Sudao'" that was free on iTunes a couple weeks ago. I downloaded the song because I thought it sounded cool, but what does bien sudao' mean?
¿Como se dice "bien sudao'" in ingles?

Gracias,
Alejandra

Sudao is an elided version of sudado. Sudado means sweated or sweaty, it's the past participle of the verb sudar. Bien Sudao could be translated as really sweaty.

This is not a direct translation, Poli, as in this phrase, bien, is not and adjective, but an adverb meaning muy / very / really / pretty.

bien sudado translates as really sweaty, very sweaty...

I'm not sure if well sweaty would be right.

In Poli's defense, 'good and' is another way to say 'really,' when it is followed by an adjective.
The boys got good and muddy outside. = The boys got really muddy outside.
The football team was good and sweaty at the end of the game. = The football team was really sweaty at the end of the game.

That's right Rusty, good and means really or very. It should be noted that,
just as in the Spanish use of bien, good and is good for everyday speech.
It's not at all formal.
