Willie Weeks, born William Ernest Weeks (5 August 1986, Winchester, United Kingdom), is a multi-platinum and grammy nominated British artist, songwriter, and producer.[1]. He achieved his first Billboard #1 in 2013 with the double-Grammy and ASCAP winning artist, Matt Redman, and has since worked and contributed music for notable artists worldwide such as; BTS, Monsta X, Cravity, Taeyeon, SF9, TVXQ, Mark & Xiumin, Oh My Girl, Jake Isaac, and Newton Faulkner.

Career

His first big commercial achievement came in 2013, writing for Matt Redman’s US Billboard topping album, `Your Grace Finds Me´. Weeks has since been involved in other songs for Redman´s albums, including; These Christmas Lights[2], Unbroken Praise and Glory Song[3]. He was also a part of writing '27 Million', a song by Matt Redman and LZ7, who released it with the intention to raise awareness for the anti-human trafficking movement. The record was in support of the A21 Campaign, with the aim to abolish modern day slavery. The song reached #12 in the UK official singles chart[4].

One of Weeks´ big breakthroughs into Kpop was writing the song `Wishing on a Star´ for BTS’s album ”Youth” in 2016. Since then, Weeks has written and produced several major hit songs which led the UKP magazine to name him `the brain behind K-pop´[5].

Recent achievements have been writing the Monsta X songs `Follow`, which reached #1 on the Gaon Music Chart, `Fantasia´[6][7] that reached #1 in the US iTunes chart[8] and `Love Killa´. Other K-pop artists that Weeks has written songs for include; Cravity[9], Taeyeon[10], SF9[11], Mark & Xiumin and Oh My Girl[12]

Further artists that Weeks has had commercial success with as a songwriter and producer include Newton Faulkner[13], TVXQ and Kizzy Crawford[14]
