"Jimmy Choo" is a song by American rapper Fetty Wap. It was released on February 5, 2016 and was produced by K.E. on the Track. The song sampled the intro part of The Psychedelic Furs's 1982 hit song Love My Way (song), most famous at the audience today for his use in the 2017 Oscar nominee coming-of-age drama by italian director Luca Guadagnino Call Me by Your Name.[1]

Release[edit]

Fetty Wap first released the track on his SoundCloud on November 5, 2015.[2] The song rose to popularity through a vine that went viral, featuring two girls dancing to the song.[3] This led to the song's official release on February 5, 2016, via digital distribution as a single.[4] Lyrically, he serenades a lady wearing the designer heels.[5] Noted by Billboard, the song contains an "undulating" hook ("Jimmy Choo’s on her feet when she be walkin'"), delivered in his "half-mumbled" vocal style against a smooth, clubby backdrop.[6]
