Fetty Wap, whose 2016 return to the festival featured crowd favorites like “My Way” and “Trap Queen,” gave a (somewhat vague) timeline of when fans will get their hands on his next album, the follow-up to his self-titled debut: “I’m shooting for soon … Before the end of the year.”

“I just been in the zone lately,” he told Billboard. When asked about the sound of the music that’s yet to come, he said, “It’s definitely still the party sound … That’s how we do … But it’s just more mature now, definitely a more mature sound.”

“On this album, I tried to steer myself away from ‘Trap Queen’ because I didn’t want people to put me in the category of just ‘Trap Queen,’” he added.
