With the official release of his debut album less than 2 weeks away, New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap will make his return to Late Night this evening to perform his hit, 679 feat. Monty on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The track comes from his forthcoming self-titled release which is set to drop on September 25 via 300 Entertainment. Pre-orders for the album are now available.
2015 will forever be remembered as the year that Fetty Wap took over hip-hop. Right out of the gate, the rapper and singer did things that usually happen over the course of an entire career. He broke records, topped charts, went multi-platinum and got everybody talking all without the backing of a major label, becoming the biggest-selling indie artist of the year.
Over the course of 2015, his breakout hit "Trap Queen" went triple-platinum as his next two singles, "My Way" [feat. Monty] and "679" [Feat. Remy Boyz], reach gold and platinum status, respectively. His fourth single "Again" cemented his spot in history as the "first artist ever to simultaneously chart his inaugural four entries in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot Rap Songs Chart." Add to that his accomplishments becoming the “first artist since Eminem to land 3 songs in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100” and the “first artist to take 3 spots on the Shazam Global 200 Chart.” Plus, he took home the “Artist to Watch” award at 2015 MTV Video Music Awards—his first VMA.
He's lit up stages everywhere from the MTV Movie Awards mashing up "Trap Queen" with Fall Out Boy, BET Awards, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with The Roots, and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! to his hometown school, Eastside High [the real life school portrayed in Lean On Me]—where the mayor of New Jersey presented him the key to the city. Kanye West and Rihanna sing his praises, while Drake "blessed" "My Way" with an official remix. What do Taylor Swift and the Kansas City Royals have in common? Well, they're part of his massive "pop-cult" following, both using the "Trap Queen" opening line, "1738," during national interviews. Meanwhile, the pop superstar has performed the song with him live.
His original sound spoke to everybody and now it drives his self-titled full-length debut, Fetty Wap [RGF Productions/300 Entertainment] due September 25, 2015.
