Rod Wave

Rod Wave is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Signed to Alamo Records, Green is known for his strong voice and incorporation of hip hop and R&B, having been recognized as a pioneer of "soul-trap." Green rose to fame with his 2019 single "Heart on Ice," which first went viral on TikTok and peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. His debut album, Ghetto Gospel (2019) peaked at number ten on the US Billboard 200. His second album, Pray 4 Love (2020) peaked at number two on the chart and included the song "Rags2Riches" (remixed featuring Lil Baby), which peaked at number 12 on the Hot 100. His subsequent studio albums, SoulFly (2021), Beautiful Mind (2022), and Nostalgia (2023) each debuted atop the Billboard 200—the latter of which for multiple weeks—and earned him further critical acclaim for his soulful delivery and lyricism. His success matched that of Taylor Swift as the only artist to debut a new chart-topping solo album within in each of the previous three years.
