The new album,Nostalgia” by Rodarius Marcell Green, better known as Rod Wave, was released on September 15th of this year, and on October 19th, he started his tour. According to Songkick, he is currently touring with other rappers including Ari Lennox, G Herbo, and Toosii.

One of Wave’s recent concerts was held in Washington D.C. Capital Arena, where people enjoyed the environment and the overall feeling of being there.

“I felt very happy, and I enjoyed it because everybody was singing every song,” junior Raesaun Ellis said. ”So it was just a great atmosphere to be in.”

According to the Wave Wikipedia, Wave began his career in 2015. In 2019 he released his album”PTSD”, which included the song “Heart On Ice”. This song  went viral and rose to the top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. During this time, he caught most people’s attention.

“I started to listen to him probably since the eighth grade,”senior Amaya Delcarmen said.

His concerts are described to be an exhilarating environment, as well as more hyped when compared to other artists performances. 

“I think the vibe was different, and it was more fun, compared to other concerts I’ve been to,” Delcarmen said.

People listen to Wave’s music simply because it is relatable; they are able to make connections and feel what he is saying. Each of his fans have their own opinion and diverse connection with his music.

“ His music might seem sad to others, but honestly I feel like it’s just how some people feel at times,” Sophomore Janel Brent said. “ His music has a different feel though.”

Wave is what some people need just to feel good. This might sound inadequate to non-Wave fans, yet they can tell how he encourages others to not only hear but listen to his music.

“You feel like you can escape, and there is such a peaceful feeling that he gives through his music,” Brent said.
