Speaking about the deal, Sony/ATV chairman and CEO Jon Platt said: “Rod Wave has unlimited musical potential and a poetic intensity that connects with fans. We are proud to support his rising career.”

Last month, Rod Wave released his new album Pray 4 Love, which earned over 100 million on-demand streams in just the first week.

Rod Wave said: “I’m hyped to be working with Jon, Brittany and everyone at Sony/ATV – I believe this can take everything to the next level.”
