Editors’ Notes Rod Wave brings every part of his personality to the mic, flipping between heart-on-sleeve soul man and hardened rapper—sometimes within the same verse. You’d think the St. Petersburg, Florida native had lived many lives, even as a fresh-faced teenager who began releasing mixtapes in 2017, straight out of high school. “Heart on Ice” helped push Wave into the limelight, with its candid raps slipped between the sheets of a silky melody. It’s a formula he would come to refine on his 2019 debut album, Ghetto Gospel, and 2020 follow-up Pray 4 Love, a heartfelt collection of confessions that reveal not only his anxieties, but all of ours.
