02 June 2021 – Trap Queen by Fetty Wap

You can listen to “Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap here.

I’m on a bit of a roll with Vine tunes. “Trap Queen” is kinda the opposite to the other two songs. The other two songs were good songs that were in Vines that I liked. “Trap Queen” had billions of Vines and they were all trash. What’s interesting about “Trap Queen” is that that’s just the way viral songs work now. Of course it’s all Tik Tok now, but viral songs are parts of trends, challenges and dances.

I think the success “Trap Queen” on Vine is probably based on Fetty Wap’s use of language. As a song gets to a certain level, it crosses over into a mainstream audience and people who wouldn’t listen to hip hop begin to hear things they’ve never heard before. The end result is a lot of white people making some racially dicey jokes about things they don’t know about.

The track itself is pretty lo-fi with big synth chords. Fetty Wap’s use of adlibs and auto tune are what I really like about “Trap Queen”. The chorus is simple, lots of repetition of Fetty Wap’s classic baby and yah ha adlibs. It’s just a good time.
