Mis-Teeq Star's N.E.R.D. Video Dream

MIS-TEEQ singer ALEESHA DIXON has been handpicked by PHARRELL WILLIAMS to star in his new video, after the super-producer was blown away by her beauty.

Williams spotted the sexy singer's picture on the front of British men's magazine ARENA - and insisted she be cast for the promo, to accompany his group N.E.R.D.'s new single SHE LIKES TO MOVE, despite casting directors suggesting he pick models NAOMI CAMPBELL or TYRA BANKS for the part.

Dixon - a BRIT-nominee with the R+B threepiece - jumped at the chance and jetted off to Los Angeles last week to shoot scenes for the video.

The star-struck singer gushes, "I still can't believe this has happened. I got the call last Wednesday (7JAN04) and on Thursday (8JAN04) I was on a flight to LA.

"Doing the video was a fantastic experience. My scenes were filmed in a desert and I had to ride around on the back of a motorbike.

"To get to see N.E.R.D. at work was an amazing experience becasue in my opinion they are the hottest act in the world at the moment."
