Fetty Wap Goes Hard on New Song ‘Boomin”

“Trap Queen” rapper proves he’s hardly a one-hit wonder

Fetty Wap’s sleeper hit “Trap Queen” has become the top contender for this year’s Song of the Summer, but it sounds like the New Jersey rapper is wasting no time in churning out a new hit for himself with his latest track, “Boomin.'”

Harder than the island-y feel of “Trap Queen” and “My Way,” “Boomin'” sounds closer to the Chicago drill scene. The track has Wap straying from the sing-rapping that has made his unexpected hit so unique.

Though “Trap Queen” was released in early 2014, it took until last fall for the song to start receiving more widespread attention. In February, Kanye West brought him out onstage to perform the single at the first annual Roc City Classic show in NYC. The next month, Wap gave a notable performance at South by Southwest and made his subsequent television debut at the MTV Movie Awards when he joined Fall Out Boy onstage in April.

West and Fall Out Boy aren’t the only famous fans of the emerging rapper; Rihanna was an early supporter of him while Drake and Azealia Banks have hopped on remixes of “My Way” and “Trap Queen,” respectively. Earlier this month, Ed Sheeran produced an earnest, acoustic version of “Trap Queen” with the Roots for The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon‘s YouTube.

Though Wap’s SoundCloud output has been prolific, he has yet to release his debut EP or album. He is currently signed to 300 Entertainment alongside Migos and Young Thug.
