Fetty Wap rides a motorcycle, pops champagne, hangs out beneath an overpass and flirts with an underappreciated woman in his video for “My Way.” The skittering track, which revolves around a melismatic vocal hook, features a verse from Remy Boyz member Monty, who joins Fetty in the celebratory clip.
The video alternates between scenes of Fetty hitting the club and cruising the streets, decked out in a Michael Jordan jersey. Meanwhile, Monty swerves around in his BMW and counts large stacks of cash. The rappers mingle throughout with several women who enjoy vaping.
“My Way” – the third single from the 24-year-old New Jersey native’s self-titled debut LP, following “Trap Queen” and “679” – came out in February, peaking this summer at Number Seven on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. With his follow-up hit “Again,” Fetty became the first rapper to have his first four singles simultaneously rank on Billboard’s Hot Rap Tracks Top 10.
“Even if the album don’t go anywhere, that doesn’t mean nothing to me,” Fetty told Rolling Stone. “I did what most people said I wouldn’t do. And I overcame, I guess you could say, a lot of rookie boundaries. I just shot past what a lot of people expected. Selling the album is what I’m supposed to do in the music industry, not what I wanted to do.
“For the most part, I don’t really have a story to tell,” he continued. “It’s the same story; everybody come out with the same story. They came from nothing, they got something and now they have everything. It’s the story everybody already knows about. I just figured, why keep telling people that they ain’t gonna get the chance to live this way? About how much money I got? About how many cars I own. Why can’t I just put it in a way that they don’t really know what I’m talking about, but they’re just singing along? I don’t depend on lyrics for my music. If I did, it’d be a lot longer process for me to make music. And, on top of that, I’d have to be a storyteller, and I’m not a storyteller.”
