Dizzee Rascal: ‘I don’t want to put out a good album – it has to be amazing’

Rapper says he won't settle for anything less than excellence on new offering

Dizzee Rascal has claimed that he only wants to release a new album if it’s “amazing”.

Speaking to the Metro, the rapper said that he wouldn’t be content with his latest offering merely being “good” because he knows his fans expect such high standards from him.

He said:

I don’t want to put out a good album. I want it to be amazing like because I know people are expecting a lot from me, and I’m confident.

He added: “I’m probably in the best space for making an album as far as being relaxed. I want people to dance, jump around and say, ‘Yeah, that’s the shit.'”

Earlier this month, the hip-hop star revealed that the LP, which will be his fifth studio effort and the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Tongue N’ Cheek’, will feature contributions from house producer Erick Morillo and Calvin Harris.

Dizzee kick-started his 2012 comeback with the release of a free mixtape at the beginning of the year (January 1) and later admitted that he still liked “making big pop records” and had no plans to abandon his mainstream chart success.

The rapper, who took a break from music last year, recently signed a new record deal with Universal Music, shortly after the label agreed to purchase the recorded music division of EMI.
