In the song, Hue name-checks luxury fashion brands, Pharrell Williams and Stanley Kubrick in verses full of fun braggadocious attitude.

“Tell her come bring all her friends / We got a party in west / I guess she think I’m the man / I’m always winning again,” raps Hue.

Speaking of the song, Hue said he inspired by the hip-hop releases of 2017 and “shouldn’t be taken too seriously”.

“I wrote ‘WEST’ based on my experiences living in Los Angeles – it’s a song about my progression in my music career,” he said in a press statement. “The process was just what came naturally to me.”
