Rod Wave – “Yessir” [OFFICIAL AUDIO]
A rapper from St. Petersburg, Florida, Rod Wave started to build a regional buzz off the strength of his Hunger Games series and collaborations with peers such as GlokkNine. Two of his most recent singles, “Valid,” and “Heart 4 Sale,” have been bubbling in the South, with the former earning a place on Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist. Earlier this month, Rod shared the moving video for “Jan2Jan,” a highlight from Hunger Games 2, his buzzing project released in May 2018. Earning praise from Kevin Gates and Moneybagg Yo for his penchant for catchy melody, Rod is just getting started.
Imbuing his anthemic songs with indelible emotion, Rod Wave is a gruff-voiced master of melody. Loudly celebrating his rise, Rod Wave shares “Yessir!,” an exuberant new single. Attacking a rippling, piano-led instrumental from Go Grizzly, Rod reflects on his meteoric rise, switching from elongated melody to forceful flows: “Straight from the bottom to the top/I knew that I was a star/Had to beat out the odds/But now I’m standing.” “Yessir” is the latest single from Hunger Games 3, Rod’s upcoming mixtape, releasing on December 7 via Alamo/Interscope, following the wrenching “Heart 4 Sale,” which has over 940,000 views on YouTube.
