GRAMMY®-nominated award-winning multiplatinum superstar Fetty Wap is set to release a brand new single “Aye” on all digital retailers and streaming partners May 12, 2017 at Midnight (12AM ET) via RGF/300 Entertainment. It’s the first glimpse of his forthcoming second full-length album and what he promises to be one of the year’s biggest hip-hop releases, King Zoo– coming soon. Pre-save “Aye” on Spotify to be the first to hear it on release day.
“Aye” sees Fetty firing on all cylinders. Tapping into the same raw and wild energy that drove his RIAA triple-platinum star-making self-titled full-length debut back in 2015, he goes hard on a hypnotic beat, running down a long list of platinum hits before cooking up another anthemic and undeniable hook. It’s classic Wap through and through, properly sparking “King Zoo Season.”
He recently teased the music video with a short Instagram clip that quickly went viral racking up over eighty thousand views. Premiering in conjunction with the single, the cinematic visual directed by Michael Garcia [Tunnel Vision] shows Fetty like never before. He rolls up to a rowdy biker bar in a post-apocalyptic landscape like some sort of trap-inspired Mad Max: Fury Road and turns up!
About “Aye,” Fetty comments, “This is the one my fans been waiting for. It’s go time- King Zoo season! We went crazy with the video, and it’s something I’ve never done before. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
This month, he touches down in Europe for a string of high-profile appearances. Fetty Wap will be attending the legendary Cannes Film Festival as well as the amfAR Gala. Further expanding his influence in fashion, he stars in a new campaign for high fashion designer Philipp Plein. Stay tuned for more details!
