Wiley needs to introduction but I will say it anyway. Wiley is one of the founding fathers of UK Grime. I have personally followed his career since the UK Garage were mainstream, from when he was in Pay As You Go Cartel/Crew. From when he made Eski Beats/Sound, the days of Rolldeep vs So Solid. I always had high respect but for Wiley has he keeps bringing other artists in. Most UK artists like Tinchy Stryder to Dizzee Rascal, to Chip aka Chipmunk and a whole lot more.
Wiley is now classed as a veteran so you would think he knows how the industry works. So he came with "Heatwave" and released perfect timing for summer. Now he is finally number 1. But at what cost. I personally not feeling the sound but I do however like the lyrics. With the video it reminds me of a scene straight out of TOWIE, The Only Way Is Essex, it also reminds me of a H&M summer advert. Overall 3/5 one can only wish that now the UK public is embracing him that he can return with sound he started of with. But in the words of Wiley "evolve or be extinct" so in a way he has evolved and that is something that can't be denied. More success to him. Just wish he went number 1 the way So Solid Crew did.
