With Jersey club music making its biggest mainstream breakout yet this year, artists with roots in the scene like Bandmanrill are making sure the attention doesn’t get stolen by the Lil Uzi Verts and the Drakes, artists making blockbusters influenced by the regional sound. Just over a month after releasing his major label debut, Club Godfather, Bandmanrill returns with “You Don’t Know My Name,” a new single featuring the erstwhile chart god Fetty Wap.
The new track is based around a sample of Alicia Keys’ identically-titled 2003 track. It’s always a treat to hear Bandmanrill sprinkle some vulnerability on his usual boisterous flexing, and that’s just what he does here, outlining the contours of being cheated on and his struggles to get a proper confession.
The music video, streaming above, was obviously filmed before Fetty Wap was arrested on an absurd number of serious drug trafficking charges. He’s reportedly facing a minimum of five years after pleading guilty to one federal count of conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, but that didn’t stop him from securing a pre-Thanksgiving viral hit in the song “Sweet Yamz,” a remix of a 2021 track by Masego and Devin Morrison.
