**WARNING: Explicit language**
The iconic hip hop artist is blessing us with a hot track that’s perfect for summer 2017. Loving “Text Ur Number” so much, iHeartRadio is world premiering it. Starting at 6:00am ET on Thursday (Aug. 10) until 11:00pm ET, fans of Envy can listen to the song at the top of every single hour on all of our Hip Hop and R&B, and Rhythmic radio stations.
Throughout “Text Ur Number,” Fetty raps/sings about being so infatuated with a special someone that he becomes obsessed with getting close to her. Fetty’s significant other is so incredible that he wants to do nothing but treat her like the treasure she is. He only has eyes for her, as he loves to show the world how amazing she is.
Envy and Sliink’s production skills give us a lot of fun, fist-pumping vibes from the beginning of the hit to the very end. Along with Fetty’s voice and signature catchy hooks, we can already predict that "Text Ur Number" will be one of the biggest summer anthems that you’ll be hearing everywhere you go. It’s the chill, summery, feel-good hit that we’ve been waiting for!
iHeartRadio spoke to "The Breakfast Club" personality about his hot smash. During this hilarious conversation, the Queens-bred DJ talked about the meaning of his song, why he wanted to collaborate with Fetty Wap, the craziest texts he ever sent and received (Yes, they’re nasty!) and more.

What's "Text Ur Number" about? What kind of song is it?
'Text Ur Number' is a song about pretty much a guy seeing a girl and really wants to date her. He sees her out and about, and really wants to see what's going on. So, he approaches her and says, "Hey ma, text your number." It's the perfect song for the club. It's a summer song. It's a feel-good song. It's that Vegas, Miami, Jersey shore, or just chilling at home and want to turn up. It's that type of song.
Who'll be able to relate to it?
Everybody will be able to relate to it. Whether you're 16 years old and you just want to turn up in high school, or you're a grandma and you're 90 years old, and you want to do some Jersey fist pumping. It will relate to you.
How did you and Fetty Wap get together to make this collab happen?
I hooked up with my boy DJ Sliink, and DJ Sliink and I had the perfect idea for a huge summer smash. We hooked up with Fetty Wap and the rest is history. Fetty Wap is somebody I've known from the beginning of his career when he first created 'Trap Queen.' So, getting him [to be] a part of the project was easy. We actually shot some of the photos at his house. That's how cool we are. So, it was a dope project. Fetty Wap, DJ Sliink, DJ Envy; it was just magic.
What's the weirdest text you ever received?
The weirdest text I ever got was from a female artist who was actually coming to a club I was DJing in and she wanted to put, 'Imma come through,' and she actually put, 'Imma come on you.' It was the funniest thing ever. We laughed about it. We still laugh about it to this day. Shout out to Steph Lecor.
What's the craziest text you ever sent?
I think the craziest text I ever sent was to my mom. I meant to sent it to my wife and I was like, 'When I get home, Imma tap that ass.' Luckily, my mom didn't really know what 'tap that ass' was. So, I kind of was like, 'Ah, sorry, mom. Wrong person.'
Are you working on more music in the very near future? If so, any details?
Yeah, I'm working on a lot of new music in the future. We have an action-packed album that will be coming out next year. I can't wait to share some more music with you.
