Fetty Wap can’t miss right now and teaming up with pop sensation Natalie La Rose is only helping his case. After crushing pop radio with the assist from Jeremih on “Somebody,” La Rose and the one-eyed wonder tackle an electro-inspired duet for “Around the World,’ another less direct attempt to own Top 40 this summer. Surprisingly, the cavity-inspiring gloss on the track finds a nice balance and will definitely find its way to patio playlists.
For the record, I have almost no idea what Fetty says across his verse but still found myself rewinding it multiple times. The power of pop is alive and well. Is this the right move for Mr. Wap? He isn’t short on hits so he can probably do whatever he wants and still end up headlining Summer Jam but what about longevity? Hopefully Moscovitz, Liles et al. are monitoring his feature availability so that we can enjoy a few more summers with the New Jersey prince riding shotgun.
