Dappy has achieved unprecedented success both as a solo artist and as part of N-Dubz, without question one of the most culturally significant groups in contemporary British pop music. Their albums 'Uncle B,' 'Against All Odds' and 'Love.Live.Life' have to-date sold over 1 million copies in the UK. Earlier this year, the band completed a sell out arena tour, with dates at London's huge O2 and the MEN in Manchester. With over 100 million views on YouTube, 1 million friends on Facebook and 200,000 followers on Twitter Dappy and N-Dubz are among the most powerful names in music.

December saw Dappy tour the UK as a solo artist for the first time, winning rave reviews and showcasing eagerly awaited new material to his huge fanbase. In addition, Dappy has recently launched his own clothing brand 'MIGI Clothing', named after his sons Milo and Gino. He has big plans for extending the brand this year. Now, with a solo No.1 under his belt and debut album nearing completion, 2012 looks set to be the biggest year of the Dappy success story to date

'Rockstar' is the second single to be taken from Dappy's debut solo album due out in 2012. Dappy's 'No Regrets' flew straight to the top of the Official UK Singles Chart, setting a new chart record, as the 11th consecutive UK artist to top the single chart in 2011, the longest run of No.1s by UK acts ever.
