Yeah, baby! Following his Nicki Minaj collaboration “Like a Star,” Fetty Wap reveals that he’s also worked with another superstar: Jhené Aiko.
Speaking to Billboard, Zoovier announced that the song is on the way and it’s “fire.” “I sent her a song and made it specifically for her to feature on,” he said. “When she heard the song, she was like, ‘The song is fire. It’s hot. We gon’ rock with it.’ She did it. She took her time on it. She did what she did and it’s fire. I’m just excited because it’s my first time working with big artists.”
During the interview, Fetty also opened up about working with Nicki Minaj. “I was really beasting for her to get on the song [‘Like a Star’],” he said. “I ain’t really want nobody else on the song but her. I really didn’t make the song for myself. I just made the song to see if she liked the song, and have somebody else do the song with her. I ain’t really the reggae-sounding artist, so for me to jump in that lane, it was different for me.”
Both tracks are expected to appear on King Zoo, the follow-up to Fetty’s self-titled 2015 debut. “This album is more like a love story album,” he explained. “That’s what people know me for. I make a lot of songs for females. A lot of stuff that I be going through, I just put it in my music. It’s gonna be some good songs and there’s gonna be some different songs. It’s all the Fetty Wap sound.”
While he’s worked with Nicki and Jhené, his favorite rapper Gucci Mane will most likely not be on the album. “I know a lot of people felt like I was going to be on his album and stuff, but he just came home,” Fetty revealed. “I really stay to myself a lot. I don’t really be in the mix like that. When I met him, it was like, I met him. After that, it’s hard to catch up to people when y’all both busy. When that time come, we’re gonna get a good session in. We’ll probably knock that out in a day. I got a lot of songs and I know he got a lot of songs, so it ain’t nothing for me to throw a verse on something, or for him to throw a verse on something. We can do a whole mixtape or album in a day.”
King Zoo has no release date but is expected to drop this year.
