Following the release of his brand new album The Fifth Dizzee is back with new single Love This Town –
a euphoric ode to his hometown.
On Love This Town, Dizzee worked with 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’ to name a few to continue his assault on global airwaves. The video for Love This Town was directed by Ian Robertson – the man responsible for Duke Dumont’s genius ‘Need U (100%)’, it’s Dizzee’s take on the youth culture of today and shows him spreading the Dirtee love all over London.

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 Kingstonand Robbie Williams on this Top 5 hit Goin’ Crazy.
