Blessed with a special singing voice, and an uncanny gift for songwriting, Florida's Rod Wave is taking his own path to the top of the game. Coming through with a soulful set of Southern sing-raps, the St. Petersburg native has built a groundswell of regional support and blossomed into a national streaming phenomenon. After releasing 3 projects in a 12-month span – Hunger Games 3, PTSD, and the platinum-certified Ghetto Gospel – Rod first erupted onto the scene with the viral 3x-platinum “Heart On Ice." His debut album, Pray 4 Love, was certified platinum within a year of release, propelled by the TikTok crossover moment "Rags2Riches." He surpassed Pray 4 Love one year later with SoulFly, which became Rod’s first-ever #1 album on the Billboard charts. After embarking on his 35-date nationwide SoulFly tour in the fall, Rod released two massive singles, the platinum-certified "By Your Side" and the Hank Williams-sampling "Cold December." The two singles set the stage for his third studio album, Beautiful Mind, which likewise debuted #1 on the Billboard charts.
