Hot on the heels of his renaissance extravaganza with the viral hit I Don’t Need A Reason, Dizzee returns with his brand new single Something Really Bad featuring the unstoppable Will.i.am. Impacting on 30th September Something Really Bad is another Dirtee monster destined to join the platinum-lined hallways filled with discs of his previous massive party anthems.
For the Something Really Bad video Dizzee worked with director Henry Schofield playing with 3D mapping to make a slick visual also starring Will.i.am. The single impact on the same day as Dizzee’s new album The Fifth, his biggest and boldest material yet. He’s worked with a plethora of US producers from Rihanna and Chris Brown veterans Warren Okay ‘Oak’ Felder and Andrew ‘Pop’ Wansell, to Madonna’s hook-scientist of choice Jean-Baptiste Kouame and RedOne (the all-conquering Swedish/Moroccan production house that gave the world Lady Gaga’s ‘Poker Face’, J-Lo’s ‘On The Floor’ and Nicki Minaj’s ‘Starships’).
The Fifth also sees Dizzee bring together a crack team of collaborators and experts to create a dynamite combination of tracks destined to hit the global jugular and taking him even further into the realms of crossover success. Features on the album include Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, Will.I.Am, Angel, Sean Kingston and Robbie Williams on this Top 5 hit Goin’ Crazy. For all the numerous star names who make a contribution, there’s never any doubt about whose album this is, and where his roots are. Pre-order it here http://po.st/TheFifthAlbum
It’s been a decade since the release of the seminal Boy In Da Corner marking a big year for the East London emcee turned worldwide superstar. He went onto release three subsequent hit albums including the self-released platinum Tongue and Cheek which spawned 5 number one singles in the UK which was honoured but the Official Charts Company last year. With countless accolades and industry awards under his belt including coveted Mercury Music Prize, Ivor Novello, Brit and most recently a landmark performance at the 2012 Olympics, Dizzee has proved he is one of the most successful British artists of all time.
Live Dizzee will be headlining the iTunes festival on 27th September. Something Really Bad impacts on 30th September. The Fifth will be released on the same day.
