Fetty Wap speaks on Drake's new "My Way" remix.
As if "Trap Queen" currently sitting at #3 on the Hot 100 isn't enough, Fetty Wap's status as one of the biggest breakout stories of 2015 was cemented yesterday when Drake released a remix of his song "My Way." In the midst of becoming the first artist since Makonnen to get that coveted Drizzy remix treatment, the Remy Boy sat down with The Fader to explain how this whole thing came about.
On his first contact with Drake:
"He sent me a DM, and I sent him my number. When I landed from Tampa a couple of days ago, and as soon as I landed and turned my phone off of airplane mode, he was FaceTiming from DC where he was playing 'My Way' at a club. He was like, 'Yo, I want to cut the record tonight.' Next thing I know, I checked my email and it was there."
On his respect for the OVO artist:
"The thing I respect about Drake the most is that he's not one of them artists that take his status and just do what he want with it. He has the status to just do anybody's track, if he really wants to. I'm just a nobody compared to Drake, and he still actually asked me, 'Is it cool if I do a remix?' And even the way he said it—more like, 'Can I bless it?' He was thanking me for putting him on the remix, and I'm trying to tell him like, 'No, thank you. You don't understand what you're doing for me.' He's definitely a very, very, very, very humble person."
