DJ Envy enlists DJ Sliink & Fetty Wap for “Text Ur Number”
DJ Envy is well known for his role on Power 105’s ‘The Breakfast Club,’ but when he isn’t going back and forth with Angela Yee and Charlamagne, you might catch him making music. He returns with the bass heavy, Jersey Club transitioning “Text Ur Number” featuring DJ Sliink and Fetty Wap.
Produced by TWRK’s Esentrik and Envy, the DJ states that he felt the Fetty Wap-featuring track would be a hit, but wanted to test the song out on his children, who “pretty much became my A&Rs because they’re my young ears to the streets,” to see what the song’s reception would be like.
“For me, it was all about the feeling. When I first put that Fetty Wap song in my car, I knew that has a hit-record,” Envy explains to Billboard. “It’s kind of like the first time I heard that Cardi B record [“Bodak Yellow”] that’s out right now. As soon as I heard it, it didn’t matter that it was Cardi B, it didn’t matter whether she had a long rap career, it didn’t matter that she wasn’t signed, I just knew that was a record that was going to take off. When that beat hits your soul and gives you that two-step rhythm, you know it’s going to be a hit.”
DJ Envy is planning for an early 2018 release for his Just A Kid From Queens album. Listen below and get the song via digital platforms.
