UK TINGS: Wiley – Fire
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Wiley is one of those dudes who seems to have never breakout into the UK mainstream. Unlike Dizzee Rascal, Wiley’s chart success is rather limited, coming with the breakout success of the house influenced 2008 single “Wearing My Rolex” a few years ago. Unfortunately for him, he hasn’t really reached those heights since, but that dosen’t mean that the Eski-boi can’t put out hits.
Wiley is dropping a new album, Evolve Or Be Extinct on January 19th in the UK and one of the first tracks is “Fire.” It has a real UK funky vibe to it, but is it enough to send him back on top of the charts? Who knows. (via HT)
