On September 25th Fetty Wap released his debut album, Fetty Wap (Deluxe)… and deluxe it is. The album's packed with 20 killer songs and starts off with Fetty’s original hit, “Trap Queen.” But before we start talkin’ music, here are a few stats on the album:

  1. Number of songs that feature Monty: 9
  2. Number of times Fetty says “Yaaa Baby”: 32
  3. Number of times Fetty mentions Remmy Boys: 26
  4. Number of times Fetty says “1738”: 35
  5. Number of times Fetty says: “Squaaaa”: 24
  6. Number of eyes on Fetty’s face: 1

Although numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5 are pure estimations, it is one-hundo-p guaranteed that he will say these phrases at least once in every song. You know how most artists only have one thing that they sing at the beginning or end of every song? You know, Lil Wayne has, “Young Money” and Jason Derulo has “Jay son Derulo.” I’ll never know why Fetty has four different things that he just has to mention in every single song, but he does. He’s got a lot of squad pride I guess.

All of the classic Fetty songs that you hear at every party and every bar are featured on the album, including “Trap Queen,” “My Way,” “679,” and “Again.” He also released the songs “Jugg” and “RGF Island” before the album came out. When you first start listening to “Jugg,” you’ll likely assume the song is going to be hard AF (much different than most of his songs) since his squad is hardcore chanting in the background… but when Fetty finally comes in, the song ends up sounding a lot like “My Way.” The lyrics are different, but the melody is exactly the same. The only difference: he changed “baby, won’t you come my way, “ to “baby, how you doin’."

RGF Island,” begins on a much slower note, but has a pretty unreal drop, just like “679” and “Again." If you haven’t started hearing this song at parties already, you will soon.

“Whateva,” the last song on the album, is the biggest standout on the album. The song starts with a phone call conversation leading into the chorus, making it a Fetty-esque R&B ballad.

“Rock My Chain” has a totally unique sound in the sense that it features M80 instead of Monty, and the different is definitely noticeable. M80 has a pretty nasally voice, but it compliments Fetty’s really well. “I’m Straight” is the most similar to "Trap Queen," and if you’re asking me, it’ll be all over the radio within days. It’s definitely bound to be a crowd favorite.

The only complaint I have about the album is in regards to “I Wonder,” which I thought was going to be more hardcore but ended up sounding like a lot of his slower songs. I really am into the beat of this song though. When it started off, I immediately thought, “this is about to get good…” until he slowed things down. Fetty makes up for it with “Trap Luv,” which honestly just gets the people goin’.

All in all, this album is definitely worth at least one listen, and a couple downloads. Keep an eye out (no pun intended) for all of Fetty Wap’s new songs. You can find them on iTunes, Spotify, and of course plenty of sketchy online sources.
