"My Way" is the third single by American rapper Fetty Wap, featuring Remy Boyz's RGF Productions' member Monty, from Wap's self-titled debut album. It peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song has over 32 million views on YouTube, while an unofficial upload has amassed 212 million views.[1] In June 2015, Canadian rapper Drake premiered his remix of the song.[2] On July 16, 2015, a remastered version of the original song leaked. This version added new adlibs to the song. The next day, the song was released as a commercial single on iTunes. The final version of the song maintained the new adlibs, but with a slightly altered instrumental.[3]
