After being previewed on September 23rd, 2022 on Instagram live, I knew “RIDE THE WAVE!” and JELEEL!’s upcoming album, “REEL RAW!” was going to be full of energy and variety. After seeing him perform multiple times in Los Angeles, California, I have been fully aboard the JELEEL! ship. I am not sure anything beats his backflips and twists into the crowd and his electric presence on stage.
“RIDE THE WAVE!” is another example of the appeal JELEEL! continues to have every release with his high octane vocals over a tumultuous beat with a variety of different kick bounces and a punk-pop sounding guitar riff that loops throughout.
I am getting to see JELEEL! again at Rolling Loud Los Angeles and I put him at arguably the top of the lineup of performers that can make a crowd feel like a stadium full of people. Watching him perform this song live is going to be one crazy experience and I hope others ride the wave.
