Arctic Monkeys joined by Dizzee Rascal

The rapper joins forces with the band

Arctic Monkeys have joined forces with Dizzee Rascal for the track ‘Temptation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend’.

The collaboration was recorded alongside tracks which appear on the band’s second album ’Favourite Worst Nightmare’.

Speaking about the collaboration Dizzee Rascal said: “We recorded it a couple of months ago in London. They send me the track first and I wrote a verse for it. They came to London and I rapped the verse over what they had. We did it really quickly – in about half-an-hour.”


He said he was keen to collaborate with the band again.

He said: “I’d definitely like to work with them again, especially Alex (Turner). He’s a special guy. He knows all types of music – it goes beyond rock ‘n’ roll.”

Dizzee Rascal is set to release his new album ’Maths And English’ later in the year.
