ROD WAVE’S PRAY 4 LOVE IS THE #1 RAP ALBUM IN THE COUNTRY
Most Streamed Album Of The Week Debuts At #2 On Billboard Top 200
The captivating debut album, Pray 4 Love, by rapper-singer Rod Wave (Alamo/Geffen Records) has lived up to its anticipation, securing the #1 spot on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart and debuting at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Pray 4 Love also snagged the title for most streamed album of the week, with 105.8 million on-demand streams. On the week following its debut, Rod Wave, who was described by the New York Times as an “anomaly among his peers,” received the #2 spot on YouTube US’ Top 10 Artists list this week. The 14-track album is home to its title single, “Pray 4 Love” as well as, “Thief in the Night,” whose Cole Bennett-directed video has now exceeded 13 MM views on YouTube. Rod Wave served up the video for yet another song, “The Greatest” days prior to the album’s release. Pray 4 Love includes production by TnTXD, SpeakerBangerz and Drum Dummie.
The success is an amazing feat by the 21-year-old, St. Petersburg, FL native who released his first project, Ghetto Gospel in November 2019. The effort set an impressive benchmark for the young artist, peaking at #10 on the Billboard Top 200. The project spawned the platinum single, “Heart On Ice” and paved the way for the sold out Ghetto Gospel Tour which is postponed due to the current global pandemic. Most recently, Rod Wave was announced as one of YouTube Music’s Artists on the Rise. As part of the campaign, Rod Wave will collaborate with YouTube Music on a unique content series which will live on his official channel; giving fans an opportunity to engage with him on a more intimate level.
