Fetty Wap’s catchy “Trap Queen” is showing no signs of slowing down in the near future. The Auto-Tune laced anthem has caught the attention of many, getting remixed by Fabolous, French Montana, Lil’ Kim, Quavo of Migos, and more recently Shy Glizzy. Throw in a co-sign from Kanye West, who brought out the New Jersey-native as his Roc City Classic concert, and the viral hit appears to be a mainstay as the warmer season comes near.
