This week has been quite busy for Rod Wave. Following the release of his video single, “Time Heals” (2.4 million views on YouTube in just three days), Rod blesses listeners once again with the release of SoulFly (Deluxe), the expansion of his Gold-certified sophomore album. Adding 9 new tracks, including guest appearances from Lil Durk and Kodak Black, Rod takes an introspective look at his personal journey to becoming one of the acclaimed storytellers of the generation. Within 12 hours of its release, the anticipated SoulFly (Deluxe) hit #1 on Apple Music, marking yet another milestone in Rod’s momentous career.
Rod Wave’s Florida upbringing has prepared him for greatness, and the nine tracks added to SoulFly (Deluxe) further emphasize how his life has finally come full circle. Rod takes pride in his grind that led him to the top of the rap game while also prophesying his career ascent in forthcoming years on choir-laced track, “Get Ready”: “It’s safe to say that I’ma take the cake for this year/I would say try again next year/But next year will probably be my best year.” Even at the pinnacle of success, Rod Wave reminds us all that it’s alright to be emotional about how far we’ve come, and where we’re going.
