Rod Wave charts his growth in “Shooting Star” music video

It follows his sophomore album, ‘Pray 4 Love.’

Rod Wave has dropped a video for his newest single, “Shooting Star.”

On the track, the rapper spits about his work ethic and journey to the top. Meanwhile, the accompanying video opens with Rod on a phone call with his mother, and moves onto charting his growth: from the rapper’s growing fanbase to energetic concerts and long hours at the recording studio.

“I was dealing with the pain in the rain but I am better now / My family out the bottom but the youngin’ took a better route / Woke up gang, face shot gang, bro don’t let me down / Don’t say a thing, we better now, Rod Wave got cheddar now,” he spits.

“Shooting Star” follows Rod Wave’s sophomore album, Pray 4 Love, which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart when it dropped earlier this year. A deluxe edition of the LP arrived in August, and featured new collabs with Lil Baby and Yo Gotti.
