Fetty Wap Goes Viral with New Single 'Sweet Yamz'
Just in time for Thanksgiving, Fetty Wap is serving up a feel-good anthem.
On Friday, the 1738 rapper returned with his new single “Sweet Yamz,” his first release as a lead artist since 2021.
“Can I get to the yams? / Sweet yams / Show me the way,” he sings on the melodic track. “‘Cause I got bills to pay / Can I get to the yams?”
If the song sounds familiar, that’s because it’s a remake of 2021’s “Yamz” by Masego and Devin Morrison.
“I really connected with the original song ‘Yamz’ from the first time I heard it earlier this year,” said Fetty. “It makes me think of one of my favorite cities, Miami. I immediately knew I wanted to flip it and had to do a Zoomix!”
Fetty’s version is making its way into homes this holiday season. His name started trending as fans showed their love. “Can we talk about how much a bop Sweet Yamz by Fetty Wap is. What a return,” tweeted one person, while another declared it a “smooth ass thanksgiving song.”

Unfortunately, Fetty won’t be spending the holidays at home. He remains behind bars after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. The charge comes with a minimum of five years in prison, and a maximum of 40 years.
