Female hip hop artist and rapper Wande has officially made her Reach Records debut with the release of her highly-anticipated album Exit, available wherever music is streamed.
When speaking on the album, the First Lady of Reach Records says the message is simple, “Every exit is an entrance, when one door closes, God will always open another door.” It’s to bring hope and encourage young Christians to endure the journey of faith; a message that rings true through the current global pandemic of COVID-19.
The Nigerian-born and Texas-raised lyricist has already released two tracks from the EP, “Happy” and “Be The Light” with more singles to follow. The two already fan-favorites, are currently being added to Hot AC and CHR Radio formats.
Wande’s second single from the project “Be The Light” was recently added to ESPN’s WNBA 2020 Draft Promotion and is yet another accolade to add to the breakout artist’s name, as her song “Blessed Up” was featured in Lena Waithe’s BET Production “Twenties”, her single “IN LUV” was heard on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop, in addition to her tracks “No Cap”, “No Ceilings” and “Happy” earning features as ESPN’s Music of the Month in November 2019 and April 2020. Wande also collaborated with Hot CHR #1 Recording artist Courtnie Ramirez for the remix of her “Perfectly Love” which helped catapult the original single to the #1 spot.
Earlier this week, Wande was mentioned for her collaboration on Courtnie Ramirez’ her first #1 hit on Billboard’s CHR Chart, as a featured artist on the Gotee Records artist’s “Perfectly Loved” for her contribution on the remix. This is just one of the many accolades the 24-year-old artist has to her name at such a young age. Within her first year of being signed to Reach Records, she has been dubbed as a top Christian hip-hop rapper to know in 2019 by USA Today, and her music has appeared on ESPN, BET and VH1 and is the first female artist ever-signed by the male-dominated label.
When speaking about this accomplishment she says, “I’m glad I’ve been able to add some diversity to our space by being the first woman on our label, and I’m looking forward to the legacy I can leave behind and the doors it will open for future women.”
