Dizzee Rascal recorded 'Goin' Crazy' with Robbie Williams in an hour and a half.

The rapper went to Robbie's home to record his latest single, and said the relaxed and creative atmosphere meant they got it finished really quickly.

Dizzee told The Sun newspaper: "Well, he said he'd only do the song if we recorded together. I went over to his house in Los Angeles and was there from six in the evening until six in the morning. In the end we spent about an hour and a half recording the track.

"It was good - it was really organic. He jumped in the booth and I was giving him directions. These days you don't always get in a studio with the other artist or the producer. He's a legend too."

Dizzee - real name Dylan Mills - is set to release album 'The Fifth' net month and can't wait to perform it on stage as his latest material was written with live performances in mind.

He added: "I'm playing a lot of new music at the moment, from my new album, so it's wicked to put it out there and see how it goes down.

"A lot of my new music is geared towards being played live.

"Hopefully I've got the tracks to keep people dancing. As long as I see people jumping, I'm happy with that."
