Fetty Wap Performs “Again,” Wins Best New Artist at 2016 iHeart Radio Music Awards
It's been quite the week for Fetty Wap, who celebrated the birth of his newborn daughter with Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood's Masika Kalysha and reportedly had his RGF Island chain snatched all before taking the iHeart Radio Music Award stage Sunday night (April 3).
While Fetty's "Trap Queen" was first released online in March of 2014 and later as an official single the following month, the rapper still took home the award for Best New Artist at the ceremony, beating out Hozier, Sam Hunt, Shawn Mendes and Tove Lo. As seen in the video above, Fetty enters on an ATV, an image that immediately reminds of the rapper's motorcycle accident last year. None to wary of the all terrain vehicles, Fetty recently advocated for motor bike riding as an alternative to gun violence. Fetty is flanked by plenty of dirt bikes above, as he performs "Again" first from a Forum corridor in Los Angeles, and later on the iHeart Radio Music Award stage. Even Taylor Swift is feeling Fetty's performance, as the singer is captured moving her arms and reciting the lyrics.
Despite winning for Best New Artist, Fetty lost out on a pair of other awards, as Drake took home both Hip Hop Artist of the Year and Hip Hop Song of the Year for "Hotline Bling." Up above, Fetty is joined by Monty as he continues to coast on the success of his debut self-titled album. Watch the performance up top.
