ROD Wave fans were left bitterly disappointed after the rapper failed to release his new album Beautiful Mind on time.
The 22-year-old artist was set to drop the new release on June 3, 2022, and now fans are wondering what’s going on.
Why didn’t Rod Wave release his album Beautiful Mind?
Rod Wave hasn’t publicly revealed why the album hasn’t been released yet, although fans have speculated that the delay may be due in part to his arrest and later dismissal of those charges in May.
The rapper was initially arrested on a felony charge of battery by strangulation – in relation to allegations by his ex-girlfriend.
However, the case was dropped two weeks later after his attorney called the alleged incident a “misunderstanding.”
At the time, Rod Wave’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, told Rolling Stone: “This case was a misunderstanding between a girlfriend and a boyfriend.
“This misunderstanding led to the arrest of Mr. Green.”
However, when news broke that the promised LP was unlikely to meet its deadline, music lovers took to Twitter to express their disappointment.
One wrote: “Rod Wave really hurt me not to drop this album yet, welp the bridge I go.”
Another shared, “That boy Rod Wave didn’t drop the album, I got sick when Meek said he was dropping the deluxe album on dearly.”
A third fumed: “Rod Wave is really trying to make us feel his pain by not dropping the album.”
