Dappy today announces that his debut solo album 'Bad Intentions' will be released via All Around The World/Island on October 1st
As a surprise for the fans, Dappy today also releases a new video 'I'm Coming: Tarzan 2' (Tarzan Freestyle 1 went online last year and has over 3 million views!), which sees him back to his hard hitting, controversial best, name checking a variety of people including Tinie Tempah, Kelly Rowland, Simon Cowell and Joe McElderry. Dappy pulls no punches in a video which is bound to cause a stir as only Dappy can. 'I'm Coming: Tarzan 2' can be downloaded from ITunes now.
Recorded over the last year, the album 'Bad Intentions' is an extraordinary body of work. Club smashes, are peppered with soul bearing slow jams to create a confident collection of pop brilliance.
The album features the No.1 smash 'No Regrets', 'Rockstar' featuring Brian May which reached No.2 this year and 'Spaceship' Dappy's top 5 collaboration with Tinchy Stryder.
Created with the help of the industries most in demand production houses such as Fraser T Smith, SX, Nathan Retro, TMS, Dawood, Wayne Hector and Alf Millar, the album is sonic manifestation of Dappy's personality.
Album opener and next single 'Good Intentions' (released September 24th) is beautiful, haunting ballad showcasing his superlative vocals and knowing lyrics. 'Bring It Home' is a knockdown dance floor smash. 'Come With Me' featuring Margs and producers Retro & Dawood (a single to be released on August 12th) is a cool slice of electro pop/dance about enjoying a night out, meeting girls and partying. Whilst 'Yin & Yang' adds final blow of pop brilliance with its standout infectious chorus, "I'm looking for Miss Ride or Die."
Dappy sold over a million albums as part of dynamite trio N-Dubz and 2012 will see him tour the UK after being dubbed a 'livewire performer' by The Independent at a recent show. The seventeen date tour will see Dappy making stops at various key venues around the country, including Manchester Academy and Birmingham O2 Academy. The tour will climax with a show at the London HMV Hammersmith Apollo. With an appearance at Radio 1 Hackney Weeked under his belt , Dappy will play a string of festival dates this summer which include V Festival, T in the Park, T4 on the Beach and Mallorca Live at BCM. He is also performing live in the ring moments before David Haye and Derek Chisora fight at Upton Park in front of 40,000 next month.
Dappy has also recently launched his own clothing brand 'MIGI Clothing', named after his sons Milo and Gino. He has big plans for extending the brand later this year.
