Video: Dizzee Rascal & James Corden, "Shout for England"



Dizzee Rascal thinking bigger than grime has been the key to his more mainstream success around his third album, Maths and English. It surely wasn't the album's pink cover that did it either. Dizzee toned down his scathing lyrical tongue for when he really had to use it which wasn't very often after he became mentioned in the same breath his fellow Brit Lily Allen and Armand Van Helden. His latest recording with James Corden takes his rising fame to a new height scoring England's official World Cup anthem, sampling Tears for Fears' "Shout" and even working in the "Ayo" chorus from BlackStreet's "No Diggity." This is actually the second time Dizzee linked up to do a football tune, with "Stand Up Tall" used previously as part of the in-game soundtrack for FIFA Street. Today we celebrate the tune, come this Saturday though, the United States will hopefully be singing a different tune when they take on Wayne Rooney and company and silence their shout. Watch Dizzee take the stage with James Corden on Britain's Got Talent after the jump.
