Wiley Releases 'reload' Video Feat. Chip Ahead Of 'the Ascent'
2012 was a ground-breaking year for grime veteran Wiley, who achieved his first solo number one with ‘Heatwave’ as well as a top five hit with ‘Can You Hear Me? (Ayayaya)’. The rapper also signed a deal with Warner Records and is now looking forward to releasing his ninth album ‘The Ascent’ on March 11…
The album will see the KOG collaborate with artists such as Kano, Emeli Sande, Angel, Far East Movement and of course, Chip. The pair just released a video for their track ‘Reload’ featuring Ms D, which sees Wiley stick with the chart-topping formula of another dancefloor winner.
Following the release of his ninth album, the Bow-bred artist will be heading on tour with Skepta and JME for the ‘Boy Better Know Presents' tour, which will include guests like Chip and Lethal B.
Wiley recently featured on MTV’s 2012 Best of the Best MCs show, coming in at no.4 – a controversial position, given the impressive amount of music the artist released last year. In a rare move, Eski pulled off the job of keeping his grime fans happy with the release of many freestyles and the mixtape ‘It’s All Fun and Games Till Vol. 1’, alongside a clear mainstream breakthrough as he topped the charts almost simultaneously.
