Fetty Wap Releases Official Album Cover: Record in Stores on September 25th
Hip-hop’s hottest new superstar, Fetty Wap personally unveiled the cover of his self-titled full-length debut, FETTY WAP [RGF Productions/300 Entertainment], on stage at the One Hell of a Nite Tour’s New Jersey stop at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. The highly-anticipated album officially arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on Friday, September 25, 2015 in both a 17-track standard format and 20-track deluxe edition.
The New Jersey multi-platinum rapper continuously shows immense love for where he came from. In addition to revealing the cover exclusively for the NJ crowd, he will deliver a free concert for his high school, Eastside High—after which he will receive the key to the city from the mayor today!
It’s a big week for Fetty Wap. Right now, he’s up for two MTV Video Music Awards including “Artist To Watch” and “Best Hip Hop Video” for his hit single, “Trap Queen.” The ceremony airs Sunday August 30, 2015. Cast your vote NOW!
This month, Fetty made Billboard history, landing four songs in the Top 10 of the Hot Rap Songs Chart—namely “Again” at #8, “679” feat. Remy Boyz at #5, “My Way” feat. Monty at #3, and the ubiquitous “Trap Queen” at #2. This achievement solidified him as the “first artist in the chart’s 26-year existence to chart his first four entries in the top 10 simultaneously.”
He continues to both smash boundaries and break records. Fetty stands out as 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.” He’s rising equally quickly on Pandora where he’s reached over 27 million unique listeners in just 90 days with the “fastest rising number of stations.” “Trap Queen” recently earned a triple-platinum certification from the RIAA for digital sales in excess of 3 million, and “679” went gold. He graced the cover of XXL as part of 2015’s prestigious “Freshmen Class” issue and received a BET Award nomination. He’s taken over television, performing at the MTV Movie Awards, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with The Roots, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE, at the BET Awards, and more.
Watch Fetty Wap ascend to rap royalty this fall.
