Fetty Wap has seen so much success since “Trap Queen” blew up. After performing at tons of award shows and recently with Taylor Swift in Seattle, the New Jersey singer/rapper is finally putting out his debut album next year.
In a story published by AP, Wap tells them that his album has been finished; however, he’s just waiting until its mixed and mastered. "My album been done for like two months now,” he says.
Lyor Cohen, the industry veteran behind 300 Entertainment, says that he didn’t want to rush the album until the timing was right. "Our industry is lacking on a wholesale level of artist development ... and we feel that [Wap is] just so brilliant and has developed this new style, new sound," Cohen said.
Cohen has been right there at every step of Wap’s career. After “Trap Queen,” the Trap&B star grew in popularity with viral singles like “679” and “My Way.” More recently, “1738,” “I’m Straight” and “Again” have been released for free in the last month and have been picking up thanks to his diehard fans.
Cohen has also helped Wap take care of his vocals, ensuring they don’t suffer any damages by calling upon a renowned doctor who specializes in vocal cord treatment. He doesn’t want Wap to strain his voice like other singers in the past like Adele, Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor.
Although we don’t know the title of his album yet, we’re already excited that it’s coming so soon. Get ‘em Fetty!
