Plus, New Jersey rapper makes US TV debut performing 'Trap Queen' on 'The Tonight Show'
Drake has remixed rising hip-hop artist Fetty Wap’s song ‘My Way’. Scroll down to hear the song now.
Remixes and guest spots have provided Drake with the opportunity to promote his favourite new artists in recent years with the ‘My Way’ remix following similar endorsements of artists including iloveMakonnen and Migos.
‘My Way’ was first released earlier this year and the Drake endoresement is the latest step in an increasingly steep rise for the New Jersey rapper, who already has fans in Kanye West and Rihanna and has gone platinum in the US with hit single ‘Trap Queen’. The 24-year-old lost the use of his left eye as a child through glaucoma. Wap also joined Fall Out Boy for a performance at the recent MTV Movie Awards.
Fetty Wap also made his US TV debut last night (May 5) and performed ‘Trap Queen’ on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Watch his performance of the song, alongside The Roots, below.
Drake released his latest mixtape ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ digitally earlier this year. ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ was released on February 12 and came as a surprise to fans.
Last month Drake was forced to explain his reaction to kissing Madonna at Coachella. The pair kissed onstage during his headline set at the closing day of the Californian festival on April 12. The incident made headlines when Drake appeared to grimace following the kiss.
Drake has also been announced as one of the one of the headliners at London’s Wireless festival this year. He joins Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, David Guetta and Avicii on the bill.
