First Lady of Reach Records Announces New Album

Dubbed as a top Christian hip-hop rapper to know in 2019 by USA Today, and having her music appear on TV programming with ESPN and BET, Wande is set to have her biggest year yet! With her unique flow, infectious personality, and strong work ethic, the Nigerian born and Texas raised lyricist continues to chart her course as the first woman emcee signed to Reach Records.

Wande brings yet another fresh record with the release of “Happy,” produced by singer-songwriter, and producer Taylor Hill. “Happy” is the first single from Wande’s upcoming full length project titled Exit.

Along with the audio, the “Blessed Up” rapper dropped a captivating music video in support of the “Happy” release. Directed by Mikael Coleman, the colorful visual showcases Wande standing in solidarity with Christian women, with stunning styling by Emily Martinez, and powerful  choreography by Briauna Baca.

Wande has also released the single “Be The Light” from the upcoming project.

“‘Be The Light’ was written as a call to action to believers to continue to be a light in a dark world,” explains the First Lady of Reach Records. “Sometimes our current situations and life circumstances don’t match the work God is doing within us. It’s an encouragement that through whatever may come your way, don’t let it dim your light and distract you from the mission to share the love of Christ with the world.”

The hip hop track 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 series “Twenties”. Her previous singles have also found a significant amount of mainstream exposure, as her single “IN LUV” was heard on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop. In addition, the singles “No Cap”, “No Ceilings” and “Happy” earned features as ESPN’s Music of the Month in November 2019 and April 2020.

Additionally, this past weekend, the 24-year-old rapper garnered her first #1 hit on Billboard’s CHR Chart, as a featured artist on Gotee RecordsCourtnie Ramirez single “Perfectly Loved.”

Exit is now available for pre-order. Supporters who pre-order the new release will receive the singles “Happy” and “Be The Light” as an instant download.

Look for Exit to hit stores on Apr. 24, 2020.
