The song is the second time that the rapper and former The Voice coach have teamed up, after Dizzee featured on J’s single ‘Wild in May of this year, and is the latest track to be lifted from his forthcoming new album ‘The Fifth’, which is set for release on September 30. He has previously previewed the songs ‘Something Really Bad’, starring will.i.am, and ‘Goin Crazy’, a duet with Robbie Williams.
Speaking to NME about his new material, Dizzee Rascal said: “I’d say it’s more a Europop sound, the sort of synths on it, you know? I went out and made this record in Miami with no distractions, working with people like RedOne, because I wanted to have a more international sound this time, and yeah, you can hear it, definitely. Most EDM, like Tiesto and Calvin Harris, has singing on it, so I wanted to put some rap on it, give it a different spin. But it’s still me.”
‘The Fifth’ also features collaborations with Calvin Harris, Tinie Tempah, Bun B, Trae the Truth and Angel as well as songwriters Warren Okay ‘Oak’ Felder, Andrew ‘Pop’ Wansell, Jean-Baptiste Kouame and RedOne.
