Watch Wiley and Skepta team up in ‘You Were Always’ video

Track will feature on Wiley's new album 'Godfather'

Wiley has shared a video for his Skepta collaboration ‘You Were Always’.

The song will feature on the grime legend’s new album, ‘Godfather’, due for release in January 2017.

As well as Mercury Prize winner Skepta, the track also features North London MC Belly.


The moody video shows Wiley, Skepta and Belly all lamenting their relationship issues. Watch below.

Wiley’s ‘Godfather’ album has long been delayed. He recently said he was cancelling the “pointless” record, writing on Twitter: “I’m not dropping an album anymore. Pointless I reckon.” He continued the tweet by writing: “If anyone needs help with a project or Riddims or features holla me. Im here ready to help.”

In a candid interview earlier this year, Wiley named Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Boy In Da Corner’ and Kano’s ‘Home Sweet Home’ as grime’s two greatest albums.

Skepta, meanwhile, recently explained why he chose to spend most of his Mercury Prize-winning night on his own.

In September, the grime MC won the prestigious annual award for his album ‘Konnichiwa’. He beat out strong competition from bookie’s favourite David Bowie as well as artists including Radiohead, Anohni and Kano.


“I stayed [at the afterparty] for a little bit then I just went home, sat on the beanbag in my front room and just looked out of the window for, like, five hours,” Skepta recalled in an interview with ES magazine.

“I just stayed there by myself,” he continued. “The thing about awards is that a lot of those moments are about the whole world telling you that you deserve it and rah, rah, rah.”

“I’m very appreciative of that but I love experiencing stuff by myself. Because it feels different. You know the truth and you can hear what the voice in your head is saying properly.”
