The group initially formed in 2000, but rose to prominence years later and dominated the UK with hits like ‘Ouch’, ‘Playing With Fire’ and ‘I Need You’ until they went on hiatus in 2012.
N-Dubz are known as being one of the first breakthrough acts for British urban music and have released three platinum-selling albums, and won five MOBO awards.
How was the long-awaited tour announced?
The trio made the announcement via their Instagram page on Monday May 16. They posted a short video of themselves hopping out of a helicopter with a brief teaser of their new single playing.
This post soon followed with another, listing their full UK tour dates for November 2022, as well as announcing their “special guest” on the tour - Love Island contestant turned rapper Wes Nelson.
Tulisa, Dappy and Frazer confirmed that the release date for their new song Charmer will be this Thursday, May 19. This will be the first track they have released since their 2011 single Morning Star.
What happened during the hiatus?
It was following the release of a Greatest Hits album in 2011 that the group decided on to go on hiatus. At the time, fans were told that the break was only temporary and they would reunite in 2013. However, 2013 came and went with no sign of the N-Dubz reunion.
Since the break in 2011, Tulisa, Dappy and Frazer all pursued solo music careers and have excelled in other areas.
Tulisa became a judge on the X-factor and mentored Little Mix, who went on to win the show and become one of the most successful British girl groups ever.
Frazer, whose real name is Richard Rawson, started producing music for many notable artists. He worked on the albums Wing(2016) and You Never Walk Alone (2017) by the world-renowned K-Pop band BTS.
Dappy released his debut solo album, Bad Intentions, in 2012, which also includes guest appearances from Queen's Brian May and The Wanted. He has also most recently worked on a song called Glorious with British rapper S1mba.
