N-Dubz's Fazer: 'My solo project will be musically credible'

N-Dubz's Fazer has spoken out in more detail about his forthcoming solo project and revealed that it might surprise existing fans of the popular urban group. 

The star, whose real name is Richard Rawson, told Scotland's Daily Record newspaper that the collaborations he has managed to secure will probably come as quite a shock:

"Everyone will be expecting I'm going to work with Tinie Tempah, Tinchy Stryder and Chipmunk, but I want to do something musically credible that opens me up to different markets. I'm going to work with Phil Collins, The Script, and I'm already doing a remix of Sting's 'Englishman in New York'."

Talking specifically about the restrictions he felt with N-Dubz, Fazer added that he is excited to indulge his own tastes and passions:

"The last 12 years I've been very locked in with N-Dubz and haven't branched out musically. I love 80s music. Dappy and I think music now is nowhere near as good as it was back then. We take our inspiration from them, the big choruses and how the songs are structured."
