Wiley - "Wearing My Rolex"
Year: 2008 Album: See Clear Now
"Wearing My Rolex" was Wiley's first real foray into mainstream chart success, peaking at No. 2 on the UK charts and being (over)played across British clubland. With it's commercial house syle production and lack of any real rapping, the song and its album See Clear Now saw Wiley accused of selling out. Wiley would eventually disown the whole album, leaving the label it was released on, and claiming they went behind his back with many of the production decisions. Whether or not this is true, it proved that he could break into the charts, and would provide a formula that Wiley would return to in the future.
