50/50/Bow E3

A proud ode to his new record deal (now that's different), this is Wiley at his most blatant and clear-minded. Lyrics like "I'm a star in the sky, you can't miss me" are cleanly rolled over a trademark, synth-flooded melody and squelching bass. 'Bow E3' is a pure grime anthem (imagine Timbaland on acid) and as ruff cut as they come. Futuristic and bass-drenched, this is a new departure for Wiley, with a denser, darker vibe - and it's hot.
