N-Dubz Fazer Teams Up With Katy Perry

Fazer's solo album will feature collaborations from an all-star cast.

Working in the studio this week with US star Katy Perry, Fazer is confident that his new album will be on a par with Timbaland’s Shock Value.

Other vocalists rumoured to be involved include Rihanna, Chris Brown and Tinie Tempah.

"I go into the studio now in a three-piece suit with bow tie as it makes me feel special," explains Fazer.

"It’s a frame of mind thing.

"Everything that leaves my studio I am confident is good enough to hit radio."

With Dappy's first single out in September and Tulisa’s new role as X Factor judge, Fazer is quick to stress that despite these solo projects, "this is not the end of the band."

"We have a new single coming out in November," he confirms. "And are thinking about repacking the Love.Live.Life album or doing a Best Of."
