Dizzee and Florence Welch's Brits collaboration surprised everyone...except Now!

Dizzee Rascal and Florence And The Machine‘s Brit Awards duet came as no surprise to Now’s Style Editor Alison Tay who was actually with Dizzee when the duo first discussed their collaboration.

Indie folk sensation Florence Welch bounced over and very sweetly introduced herself to Dizzee Rascal and Alison backstage at T4 On The Beach last summer.

‘I’d love to work with Dizzee Rascal!’ Florence confided, while her keyboard player Isabella Summers swapped numbers with his management.

Six months on, the result is You’ve Got The Dirtee Love, a mash-up of Flo’s hit You’ve Got The Love and Diz‘s Dirtee Cash.
