'Fight For this Love' hitmaker Cheryl Cole begged Dizzee Rascal to duet with her on her new album, resulting in new track 'Everybody, Everyone'
Cheryl Cole duets with Dizzee Rascal on her new album.
The 'Bonkers' hitmaker and Cheryl recorded 'Everybody, Everyone' for her second solo album 'Messy Little Raindrops' - which will be released next month - and the track is being earmarked to become a big single for the star.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "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."
'Everybody, Everyone' seemingly also contains references to Cheryl's recent personal problems - her split from ex-husband Ashley Cole and battle with malaria - with its lyrics about getting through difficult times.
Lyrics include: "I don't know what you're waiting for / Sometimes life's unfair / Don't let that stop you though / I been right where you are before.
"I'm no saint / You're not either / So what we trying to be perfect for?"
Both Cheryl and Dizzee have had success with high-profile duets before, with the pop star working with Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am and the rapper making tracks with both Florence and the Machine and Shakira.
