Today, multi-platinum and certified diamond recording artist, Fetty Wap signifies his return to music and beloved fans with the release of his latest project, The Butterfly Effect. During Fetty’s hiatus, the Grammy award-winning Patterson native reflected upon past traumas, contention with enemies, lust for abundance, romance, and his compelling need to move forward. Butterfly Effect is a euphonious interpretation of his learnings, that also captures Fetty’s signature uncompromising cadence. Standout track, “The Truth” overlaid with rhythmic synthesizers, hard-hitting drum beats, and Fetty Wap’s dynamic lyricism, details his movement away from the past and his new approach to life and relationships.
The pop culture lexicon’s year in contemplation inspired the project’s title and represents a phonetic allusion to the renowned phenomenon that changing the past will result in future consequences, alas the butterfly effect! The mixtape, jam-packed with mesmerizing tempos and unrelenting vibrato sonically transports listeners into Fetty Wap’s world.
Butterfly Effect follows the release of Fetty’s 2020 project, You Know the Vibes that featured standout tracks, “Gangsta Love” and “Way Past 12”. In the same year, the RIAA bestowed the New Jersey native’s love anthem “Trap Queen” (749M views) the highest honor with Diamond certification status. The evocative bop joins the 57 songs in history that have been certified diamond by the RIAA.
