Fresco Trey Releases "Couple Hunnid" Following Viral TikTok
What makes this song so unique and special is the origins from which its hype originated. In October, Fresco Trey posted a TikTok of him in the studio dancing to the song on top of a table, recognizing the eminence of which he created. Additionally, his whole team was feeling the energy and vibing as well, as everyone was dancing. Be sure to watch it below!
This TikTok would eventually reach the masses, as it went viral, gaining over 1.3 million views since the video was released, with over one hundred thousand likes.

One viewer, Antonio Mack, commented, "Can we all acknowledge the heat contained in this snippet?!? I need this in the gym asap!" Additionally, the comments were filled rampant with people asking the release date, with Anthony Seymour saying, "Who else wants that release date for this song!"
Mike Boyd also brings up the success of this TikTok on the Monday To Monday podcast released in November. Mike Boyd asks Trey how the TikTok came to be and why it became so popular. Trey says that it wasn't planned, it was just an authentic reaction to his song being played back and him hearing it for the first time; he didn't even know that they were recording. Trey explains that as an artist, when you're recording a song for the whole day, it sounds different and that he never had the chance to listen to the rough mix.
He exited the booth following the song's recording and told them to play the track. When it started playing, he thought to himself, "that's hard," and then got on top of the table. Everybody in the studio was naturally reacting to the song, making the video feel more native. It wasn't until the next day when Trey was sent the video from his videographer that he saw it and knew he had to post it. Mike Boyd corroborates by saying that the secret to TikTok is being authentic, noting that if Trey told everyone to dance, it wouldn't be the same.
