Dappy's long awaited debut solo album 'Bad Intentions' will be released via All Around The World/Island on October 22nd.
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 industry's 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.
'Good Intentions' 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 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 Weekend under his belt, Dappy has also performed at a string of festival dates which have included T in the Park, T4 on the Beach and Mallorca Live at BCM.
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.
