N-Dubz to reunite and release new music 'with a current twist' - 11 years after breaking up
Tulisa, Dappy and Fazer are set to return to music for the first time in over a decade with their new single Charmer
Tula 'Tulisa' Contostavlos, Dino 'Dappy' Contostavlos and Richard 'Fazer' Rawson of N-Dubz will release a new single and go on tour, eleven years after their last hit song Morning Star.
The group said their new single Charmer will be released in a few days time and the new music is "genuinely some of their best yet."
A source told The Sun: "Fans have been calling for this for years but timing has never been right. Finally all Tulisa, Dappy and Fazer are all onboard and the music they have recorded is genuinely some of their best yet."
"Think classic N-Dubz but with a current twist. Charmer was initially due out May 13 but they decided to push things back to make sure everything is perfect. Plans to film the video have been laid out like a military operation to keep everything under wraps."
The spokesman confirmed the trio will go on tour: "It's going to be massive. They have seen all the success other groups have enjoyed coming back and want a piece of the action.
"They have been trying things out in the studio for ages but finally things have fallen into place." Before going on an hiatus in 2011, N-Dubz topped the UK charts with their single Number 1 alongside Tinchy Stryder in 2009."
The group have released two top 10 albums and 12 UK Top 40s.
Fazer hinted at a reunion in 2017: "100%, that’s definitely going to come really soonish.
"Not right now, we’ve all got individual things we’re focusing on at the minute, but obviously it’s all about timing.”
“We’d been in the group since 11 and 12 years old, before we got our first break at like 21 years old, so for ten years of our life every single day.
"I was 26 at the time, we just thought it’s time to go on some holidays, spend time with friends and family and then we’ll bring it back.”
