UK rapper Dizzee Rascal has unveiled the video for his latest single, Something Really Bad featuring will.i.am. The single, which is slated for a digital release on 29th September, is from Dizzee’s upcoming fifth album, aptly titled The Fifth, expected to drop in early October.
The track is the sequel to the previous Fifth singles, his collaboration with Robbie Williams, titled Goin’ Crazy and the subsequent I Don’t Need A Reason, which saw release in June and July respectively. In an interview with NME, Dizzee said of the new material:
“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 is the follow-up to Dizzee’s 2009 hit Tongue n’ Cheek, which yielded him #1’s in the form of singles Bonkers and Holiday. Meanwhile, the upcoming album will feature collaboration with Jessie J, old friend Calvin Harris, Bun B and Nicki Minaj-songwriter Red0ne.
