Legendary singers Charlie Wilson and Ronald Isley have teamed with Fetty Wap for his “Sweet Yamz (Remix).”
Wilson joins the melodic rapper in the chorus before getting to the first verse. “Ooh, you dropped a bomb on my, baby / Saw you standing with them yams on you, baby / When we in for the night, girl, I cook up inside / Let you know when it’s time for me to get to the yams,” Wilson sings.
Isley brings his keeps the sensual mood going in verse three, singing, “Sound like mac ‘n cheese when I’m in it / Preheat the oven, it’s getting too hot up in this kitchen / After midnight, you’re the perfect snack, baby.”
Fetty Wap’s “Sweet Yamz (Remix)” with Wilson and Isley follows his Wiz Khalifa-assisted remix that dropped Dec. 9. His initial version was released Nov. 18, exactly a year after Masego and Devin Morrison released the original “Yamz.” The two singers/musicians also released a video for “Yamz” on the song’s premiere date.
“I really connected with the original song ‘Yamz’ from the first time I heard it earlier this year. It makes me think of one of my favorite cities, Miami. I immediately knew I wanted to flip it and had to do a Zoomix!” said Fetty Wap.
The rapper’s remake went viral, catching the attention of Wilson who participated in the Sweet Yamz Challenge on social media.
