British rapper Dappy has landed an unlikely collaborator in Queen legend Brian May.
The iconic guitarist reached out to the N-Dubz frontman after being impressed with the star's hit solo single No Regrets, insisting he deserved an award for his clever lyrics.
Dappy was delighted by the praise, and instantly requested May's talents for an upcoming release.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "He (May) said I deserve an award - I couldn't believe it! So I had to hit him up to work with me.
"I'm flying to LA (Los Angeles) in the morning to work on the video with him."
