For the fans of mid-2010s hip-hop music, Fetty Wap is quintessential. We’ll be seeing him more than usual this holiday season.

For a short time, Fetty Wap was on top of the world. His 2015 single “Trap Queen” topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 2. 

In addition, “679” and “My Way” sat comfortably in the top ten simultaneously, respectively, numbers 4 and 7. 

Despite the New Jersey artist’s brief run in the spotlight, Fetty’s influence can be seen throughout the industry today. The “Trap Queen” author’s vocal style and combination of singing and rapping mirror today’s hitmakers such as Rod Wave and Lil Durk. Now, the 31-year-old is jumping back into the fold with a new single. 

“Sweet Yamz” dropped this week (Nov 18) as a ‘zoomix’ to the original track “Yamz” by Masego and Devin Morrison. Fetty has continued to drop music through 2020 and 2021 but felt particularly attached to “Yamz.” 

“I really connected with the original song “Yamz” from the first time I heard it earlier this year. It makes me think of one of my favorite cities, Miami. I immediately knew I wanted to flip it and had to do a zoomix,” Fetty Wap said. 

“Sweet Yamz” is a smooth combination of R&B and funk that also incorporates piano and jazz sensibilities. The retro feel pairs nicely with Fetty Wap’s vocal range and makes the listener feel instantly at home.

“Sweet Yamz” came out to immediate positive reception, with fans calling it the perfect “thanksgiving song.”

Regardless of Fetty Wap’s extensive legal issues, including federal conspiracy drug charges, he’s determined to add to his large music catalog.
