Video: Rod Wave – “Paint The Sky Red”

The Alamo Records Signee Shows the Depths of His Devotion in the Latest Video Single from the June 14th PTSD Project


Critical Praise:

“The 19-year-old can rap at a brisk pace like an ATL rapper, hit a falsetto like a R&B singer, and often digs deep to unleash a gravelly voice that sounds like he’s the lead in a country rock band…he already possesses one of the best voices in the South.”Pitchfork

If you’re not familiar with the sounds of Rod Wave, he’s certainly one of the most talented acts to come out of Florida in some time.” – The Modern Life Mag

“One of Florida’s finest musicians”ELEVATOR

The Video:

Praised by Pitchfork as “one of the best voices in the South,” rhymer Rod Wave has a future brighter than the Florida sun. Ruminating over minor-key guitars and syncopated trap drums, Rod Wave declares his undying love on Paint The Sky Red,” his latest single. Alternating a smooth croon with a bluesy rasp, Rod uses his powerful pipes to proclaim endless devotion for the woman in his life, thanking her for bringing out the best in him and sticking by him through his trials and his rise to fame: “It’s a cold, cold world/It’s a wild, wild life/But long as I got you girl, I’m alright.” In the video, directed by Shooters Touch Films, Rod offers images of his jet-setting lifestyle, heading to NYC and South Beach and back, all the while keeping a place in his life for his love. Paint The Sky Red,” is the latest single from PTSD, his upcoming mixtape, following the West Coast-set Calabasas,” which features E-40.

The upcoming PTSD continues the soulful, introspective, and hard-hitting trajectory of Rod’s recent singles, including his mission statement “Popular Loner” (2.5 million YouTube views), the guitar-speckled recounting of his rise Tru Story, the brilliantly-sung Hard Times” (1.1 million streams on its official YouTube audio), and the single “Heart On Ice,” which earned a glowing write-up in Pitchfork’s The Onesfeature, all of which appear on the upcoming project. On PTSD, Rod acknowledges his accomplishments with pride, but never forgets his humble origins or stops fighting to buoy his friends, family, and neighborhood with his success. PTSD arrives on June 14th via Alamo/Interscope.

Carrying the weight of his community on his shoulders, Rod Wave is quickly becoming a cult figure. Rod’s upcoming PTSD is the anticipated follow-up to Hunger Games 3, his soulful late-2018 mixtape, which boasts street hits like the Moneybagg Yo-featuring “Feel The Same Way” and the lyrical “Heart 4 Sale.” Rod recently performed for a very receptive home state crowd at Rolling Loud Festival, performing his new music and previewing future hits.
