This 17-track opus finds the New Jersey native, 32, at his boldest, brightest, and best. He speaks straight from the heart on “Northern Lights” as his voice coasts over uplifting piano and punch 808s. He gets reflective, “Always knew that I’m’a be the one ‘cause I’m worth it,” as he reminds, “I ain’t ever said I was perfect.”
Elsewhere, “Undeniable” layers his infectious melodies over a vibrant soundscape. It hinges on a chantable chorus, “Addicted to you like a drug.” He turns the heat up on “Jet Li,” igniting an incendiary and energetic flow topped off with a boast, “It would take you a year to make what I made today.” Then, there’s “Super Human.” His bars teem with emotion above a distinct bass groove. Channeling the classic bounce of his 2015 breakout, the finale “Private Party” pops off as a dancefloor-ready banger. Energy surges through his delivery as he proclaims, “This is a private party baby.”
The album artwork, a Renaissance-era depiction of a king, fittingly symbolizes Fetty Wap’s coronation as Hip-Hop royalty.
Fetty was sentenced to six years in prison in May after he was found guilty of taking part in a drug trafficking scheme that spanned New Jersey and Long Island, with narcotics being transported from the West Coast.
