There have been a lot thus far, and fans have felt every single one. Overall, Wave has been flexing his singing chops in these tracks. Additionally, he has brought more of that emotional songwriting and storytelling that he is known for.
That said, it is clear that Wave is showing no signs of slowing down on this rollout. The album is going to be released on Friday, September 15th, which is tomorrow. However, he isn’t done dropping new songs. Today, Rod Wave came through with the song “Checkmate” as one last teaser before he comes through with the album. Below, you can listen to the new track, which also comes complete with a music video.

The vocals here are powerful, and the same can be said for the lyrics. Lastly, the production here is also solid and fits the theme of Wave’s previous work. If you are a fan of the artist, then it is clear that this album will be a treat.
