Wiley ft. Ms D - "Heatwave"
Year: 2012 Album: The Ascent
With over 10 years of grime under his belt, Wiley has quite clearly earned the right to make whatever music he wants, a right he's been asserting since 2008's See Clear Now, with its Mark Ronson and Hot Chip production and pop aims. Although seeing the Godfather of Grime making "gyal dem tunes" doesn't sit comfortably with many grime lovers, Wiley has released so much brilliant music throughout his career that if you don't like whatever his current single is, there are hundreds, maybe even thousands of hours of his music to delve into.
The great thing about Wiley is that he never stops experimenting, and whether you like "Heatwave" or not (and let's be honest, probably not), that's something that should be saluted.
