Dappy: "Whitney Houston Belongs On My Single 'Rockstar'"

29 February 2012, 13:51

The 'No Regrets' star says the 'I'm Every Woman' singer's death was "so sad".

Dappy says he wishes he could rewrite his current single 'Rockstar' to include a tribute to the late Whitney Houston.

The 'I Will Always Love You' singer passed away aged 48 earlier this month, and 'No Regrets' rapper Dappy says he has been saddened by her death earlier this month.

"Losing Whitney was so sad," Dappy told the Daily Star. "If it had happened before I wrote the song I'd have stuck Whitney in as well.

"Coming out of a band into the solo project I need to be clever with lyrics, make people think," the rapper explained. "I'm not moaning about being a star, or want people to think I have got a problem, it's just making people believe we need barrier-breaking music." 

Dappy's second solo single 'Rockstar' includes references to former Rolling Stones member Brian Jones, who died aged 42 in 1969, and Amy Winehouse who passed away in July 2011 also aged 27. 

Dappy has also vowed to collaborate with Rihanna or Adele on his next single if 'Rockstar' tops the UK charts.

The 'No Regrets' rapper is expected to launch his debut album later this year.
