Track Review | Fetty Wap, ‘Different Now’
“Trap Queen” hit-maker Fetty Wap returns with a new single, “Different Now.” Despite being honest and open, “Different Now” is okay at best.
Fetty Wap scored a platinum album with his self-titled debut in 2015. After landing hits with “Trap Queen” and “My Way,” he returns with a new single, “Different Now.” Does it match the hit status of “Trap Queen” or “My Way?” No.
“Different Now” has a similar sound and flow to his self-titled debut – pitched pop-rap – on the hook. The verse has a harder edge, a prudent move on his part. The production is edgy, serving as a solid backdrop to his rhymes. Over the course of “Different Now,” he talks about the changes he’s gone through. His honesty is appreciated by all means.
Ultimately, “Different Now” isn’t game changing. The record definitely isn’t in the league of “Trap Queen. ” Regardless, it was prudent that Fetty Wap altered the script with assertive rhymes on the verse. The hook is catchy, if hard to decipher.
