Up-and-coming and self-described “Afro-Trap” group The.Wav are sharing their latest track “Love Games,” an Afrobeats dance anthem for the summer.


The single infuses the groups myriad of influences, a mixture of electronic dancehall, Afro-pop, trap and hip-hop.

Cardigan who was born and raised in The Bronx is the band’s lyrical MC, Badí serves as the soulful crooner of the group and Kelly Be is the creative designer for the collective.
