Rod Wave scared his fans today. In a matter of hours he released a song called Nirvana about suicide where he referenced taking his life on a Saturday… today and deleted all of his social media. Keen on paying attention to the state and well-being of artists, fans rightfully wanted to know what the f*** was going on. Lyrics to the song went as follows:
“If you’re hearing this it’s too late / I’ve been writin’ this since Tuesday, today Friday that mean tomorrow’s doomsday / Tried to fight the pain but it ate me alive / Sad to say I lost a battle, against my mind / You should be happy for me homie no more sufferin’ / We all got a day I guess we’ll see each other then / I hope that heaven’s real and one day we can reunite / And don’t be crying for me I lived a wonderful life.”

He then came back and said that there’s no reason to be concerned because it’s a song about suicide prevention and didn’t mean to alert everyone. He’s since deleted the song.

Now he’s reactivated his Instagram but his Twitter account is still down. The fact he deleted them anyway to do this is a red flag. Mind you, he’s described himself as Kurt Cobain in the past and remember, he committed suicide stating he never felt like he fit in and in part turned to drugs because of it. While we’re glad Rod Wave is fine, this is a good example of why we need to check on people around us more to make sure they’re doing fine.
Rod Wave post and deleted a new s*icidal song titled “Nirvana” on YouTube last night. Let’s hope he’s okay 🙏🏾
