Wiley, the godfather of grime, returns with the new single ‘Heatwave’ which will be released on July 30th on Warner Bros. Records.
Featuring a huge pop hook courtesy of guest vocalist Ms D (who also featured on Chipmunk’s #1 hit ‘Oopsy Daisy’), the immediately addictive ‘Heatwave’ is full of scorching seasonal references and looks set to soundtrack the rest of the summer. The track was produced by Rymez (Wretch 32, Tinie Tempah).
Already playlisted at Kiss, 1Xtra and Choice, ‘Heatwave’ again demonstrates Wiley’s ability to create crossover hits that maintain his longstanding underground credibility, as he has previously demonstrated with the singles ‘Wearing My Rolex’ (#2), ‘Never Be Your Woman’ (#8), ‘Cash In My Pocket’ (#19) and ‘Take That’ (#20).
Wiley has a rich history in collaborating with breaking new talent, having seen the likes of Emeli Sandé, Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah, Daniel Merriweather and Tinchy Stryder feature on his tracks. He has also featured as a guest artist on recordings from Dizzee Rascal, Ed Sheeran, Jodie Connor and Chipmunk.
