Taylor Swift Brings out Fetty Wap to Perform “Trap Queen” in Seattle
Taylor Swift loves her some rappers. Last night during her 1989 Tour stop in Seattle she brought out none other than XXL 2015 Freshman class alum Fetty Wap. The white hot rapper performed his breakout single "Trap Queen" for a crowd of 60,000 plus who crooned along with every note.
Is there an urban artist hotter than Fetty Wap right now? Late last month, the one-eyed rap crooner had three songs in the top 20 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart: “My Way” and “Trap Queen” in the top ten, and “679” in the 18 slot. He is the first male musician to do so since Eminem accomplished the same feat in 2013. The New Jersey native is the first male artist with concurrent top ten singles since 2011 when Lil Wayne did it. That's elite company. He's even getting love from Major League Baseball's Kansas City Royals. So, a co-sign from Taylor Swift is just icing on the cake.
Taylor Swift is no slouch herself. The pop star's most recent album 1989 sold 1.2 million copies in its first week, registering the largest sales week for an album since June 2, 2002, when Eminem’s The Eminem Show sold 1.3 million in its second chart week at No. 1. The album was also the first LP to go platinum in 2014.
Her love for rappers is well documented, sans the infamous Kayne West incident. She's a huge fan of Kendrick Lamar and Young Buck fan and has worked with T.I., B.o.B. and Flo Rida. Even her and West are back cool now.
