Nigeria's Ayo Jay Enlists Fetty Wap For The Summer Single 'Your Number'

Nigerian up-and-comer Ayo Jay recruits "Trap Queen" rapper Fetty Wap for the hook-heavy summer anthem "Your Number"


Up-and-coming Nigerian singer-songwriter Ayo Jay has been having a fruitful 2015 that's seen the release of his debut single "Think About Me" and the addictive dance tune "Gimme Kiss." For his latest single "Your Number (Remix)," Ayo Jay's recruited stateside rapper Fetty Wap, the man behind the chart-topping "Trap Queen," for a hook-heavy summer anthem carried by the Nigerian singer's high-pitched delivery. Fetty Wap registers well over the summery Melvitto-produced beat, serving up his own request for a girl's digits. Ayo Jay will be heading out on tour across the U.S and The U.K this summer, which will feature performances from Seyi Shey, Skales, Falz, Boj and others, and stops in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington D.C, Atlanta and Houston.
