Over on the Hot 100, Fetty Wap has made major moves for Hip-Hop. His tracks, ‘Trap Queen,’ ‘My Way,’ and ‘679’ all rank in the top 20. The current standings are as follows:

  • ‘Trap Queen’ – #6
  • ”My Way’ = #7
  • ‘679’ – #18

He becomes the first male rapper to have two tracks in the top 10 since Lil Wayne in 2011 with his tracks ‘She Will’ and ‘How to Love.’ With ‘679’ in the top 20 he becomes the first male rapper since Eminem to have 3 tracks in the top 20. Eminem had 3 in the top 20 in 2013 with ‘The Monster,’ ‘Rap God,’ and ‘Berzerk.’ Congrats on the success!
