Alesha Dixon from Mis-Teeq has revealed how she was intimidated by Pharrell Williams from N.E.R.D. when she appeared in the video to the track ‘She Wants To Move’. She thought she was just going to be dancing in the video but Pharrell had other ideas. “Pharell asked me to rap for him – he literally just said to me on the spot ‘Will you rap for me?’,” Dixon explained. “I was like, ‘I’m not rapping in front of you! I need a beat.’ So, he started beat-boxing, started the rapping – my mouth went dry, my heart was beating really fast, I was so nervous, I was really nervous! But, I done it, he thought that I had talent and he said that I need to go buy a Slick Rick album. He said that I need to master how Slick Rick raps with my accent, and I’ll take over the world.”
