Dappy: "I Wrote 'Rockstar' In The Bath" - Video

The N-Dubz star speaks to Capital FM about his new single and working with Queen guitarist Brian May.

Dappy has revealed that he wrote his new single 'Rockstar' while in the bath.

The track, which is a contender for the number one spot on this week's Vodafone Big Top 40, features a guest appearance from Queen guitarist Brian May.

Speaking about the song to Capital FM, Dappy said: "I was in the bath humming and I wrote a great melody in my brain.

"I went to my writing team and we started putting some words together and we made 'Rockstar'."

Dappy said it was a "coincidence" that Brian May had revealed he was a fan of the N-Dubz star's music while he was writing 'Rockstar'.

"He said I should win an Ivor Novello award so I sent him an email saying, 'Bro, I've just done a song called 'Rockstar' would you mind playing on it if you'd like to?'

"He said it would be an honour back, and I was like, 'What?' Sent him the music straight away, [an] hour later, two hours later solo done, and a month later me and him back to back in the video. What a result."

'Rockstar' is the latest single to be taken form Dappy's as-yet-untitled debut solo album.
