Fetty Wap Makes Rap Chart History With New Single 'Again'
Fetty Wap is certainly proving that he's no one hit wonder. The New Jersey newbie, who skillfully blends rapping and singing, recently set rap chart history with help from his new single "Again."
Wap has become the first rapper to chart his first four songs in the top 10 simultaneously. According to Billboard, "Again" sits at No. 8 on the Hot Rap Songs chart (dated August 29). Elsewhere, he is currently charting at No. 2 with "Trap Queen," No. 3 with "My Way" featuring Monty and No. 5 with "679," featuring Remy Boyz.
Although eight other acts have posted four concurrent top 10s, Wap is the first to do so with his first four charting songs. "Again" also began at the top of the Rap Digital Songs with 88,000 singles sold. The release has become Wap's second No. 1 on the list following "My Way," which was remixed by Drake back in May.
Earlier this summer, Fetty Wap was featured among XXL's 2015 Freshman class list. As indicated by his profile, he is working on his as-yet-titled debut album. He recently announced that the project is due out on Sept. 25.
Wap is presently on the road as part of Chris Brown's One Hell of a Nite tour, alongside Kid Ink, Omarion and Teyana Taylor. Taylor Swift brought Wap out for a "Trap Queen" duet when Brown's tour coincided with Swift's 1989 tour in Seattle.
During one of his off days, Wap plans to perform at a free concert for nearly 1,200 high school students in his hometown of Patterson, New Jersey. The show will take place on Aug. 27 at Bauerle Field according to the mayor. Tickets were made available on a first-come, first-serve basis on Aug. 24 at nearby Pennington Park.
