Listen to Fetty Wap – Co-Star (Cover)

Fetty Wap has always had an R&B side. Since his breakout with “Trap Queen,” the New Jersey rapper has displayed an incredible knack for melody as well as some romantic tendencies in his writing. Today, he’s shared a song that gives us some perspective on where that style came from. The rapper has released what he’s billed as a “cover” of Bad Boy R&B group Day26’s deep cut “Co-Star,” though it’s more of a remix, with Fetty writing some new vocal parts over the instrumental while interpolating the hook. His voice is notably restrained, acclimatizing to the R&B feel of the track and singing a little more gently compared to his usual belt.

Of course, he still throws in a few of his signature “yeaaaah baby” ad-libs. It’s one of many songs to appear on his SoundCloud in the 3 years since his debut self-titled album. He’s also released a number of mixtapes and EPs in the meantime, often with demo-like production, leaving his fans wondering when his long-awaited sophomore album will arrive. If this is a sign it’ll be taking an R&B direction, we’re all for it.
