Westbury In The Charts
This summer the Westbury’s writers have steadily infiltrated day time radio playlist through a selection of features, covers and samples.
Earlier in the year Kanye West released his 7th album 'The Life of Pablo' to critical acclaim, the lead single Famous features Rhianna and Swizz Beats. The Kanye produced track samples the chorus of Sister Nancy’s classic Bam Bam produced by the late Winston Riley. Famous has been heavily supported across UK radio reaching number 23 on the UK charts. In July the internet was set alight by the song’s controversial video, inspired by Vincent Desiderio painting “Sleep” it featured wax figures of celebrities including Kanye, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift and Donald Trump, sharing a bed together asleep.
