B WISE

The son of an Australian born mother and a Nigerian father, B Wise’s family moved between rural NSW and Sydney’s South-Western suburbs, before settling in the latter, where he still calls home today. It was here that Wise’s love of music transformed from a side hobby into a full time labour of love.

All this paved the way for the critically acclaimed Area Famous– a record that captured the contemporary multicultural Australian experience through music in a way few others have before.

Featuring and produced by Melbourne’s Juvé, ‘Burn’ is the first taste of new music from B Wise since his 2018 debut album Area Famous, which brought him national attention and won him FBi SMAC Award for Record of the Year – the first Hip Hop album to ever win the award and recently the 2019 AIR Awards’Best Independent Hip Hop Album’.

All this paved the way for the critically acclaimed Area Famous– a record that captured the contemporary multicultural Australian experience through music in a way few others have before.

 In the years leading up to this critically acclaimed album, the Nigerian-Australian MC released a string of genre defining singles, which he took on the road and graining him a rep as one of the best live acts in the country, playing the biggest festivals in the country and supporting international artists such as Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q, Yelawolf, Vince Staples, G-Eazy and Freddie Gibbs.

‘Burn’is an infectious dance-floor ready single that’s a true reflection of Wise’s recent mood in the studio. In his words,”it’sfun, swaggy, celebratory, un-caring and risky. It’s commanding from the first beat of Juvé’s production, making it impossible for the listener not to move!”
