The N-Dubz rapper says he wants to get unexpected artist to work with him on his new solo material.

N-Dubz star Fazer says fans shouldn't expect the usual British artist to appear on his upcoming solo album.

The 'I Need You' rapper is expected to release his first material as a solo artist later this year but claims he wants to do something "completely different" with the record.

"I don't want to do the expected – everyone expects me toget the best of the UK on it, like the Tinchy's, the Tinie's and the Chipmunk's but I want to do something completely different where it sets me in a different light and showcasese my talent," Fazer told the Daily Star this week. "Not just as a rapper but as an artist and an all round musician."

Fazer revealed that if he does include collaborations on his solo album it would be with artists no one would expect him to work with.

"If I was to get any collaboration on my album it would be people like Muse, Adam Levine from Maroon 5 or Sting from The Police – something crazy," he teased. "It would be something out of the box, it wouldn't be expected."

The rapper also promised that N-Dubz will reunite in the future and are hoping to record a brand new album sometime next year.

He added: "N-Dubz will always be the base. That's one thing everyone needs to understand."

N-Dubz member Dappy has already scored his first solo Vodafone Big Top 40 number one with 'No Regrets' last year, while Tulisa Contostavlos is currently in Los Angeles working on her own solo album.
