British singer Cheryl Cole is following in the footsteps of Shakira and Florence Welch by collaborating with Dizzee Rascal on a new track. The Girls Aloud star headed into the studio with the rapper earlier this year and the song, "Everybody, Everyone", will be on Cole's upcoming album, "Messy Little Raindrops".
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Cheryl approached Dizzee about working together and they managed to rattle this track out in record time for the new album. It was only a matter of time before the current King and Queen of pop came together."
"It was all Cheryl's idea. She's a big fan of Dizzee and his collaborations with other artists. They got on really well and were on the same level. They had a good laugh together. Dizzee had a sparkle in his eye for her."
Dizzee's mash-up with Welch, "You Got the Dirtee Love", reached number two in the U.K., while his upcoming duet with Shakira, "Loca", looks set for similar chart success.
