." To record the new version, Barlow assembled a group featuring some of UK's leading urban artists, including Ed Sheeran, Rizzle Kicks, N-Dubz, Miss Dynamite, Wretch 32, Tinchy Stryder, Mz Bratt and Dot Rotton. The artists were mainly suggested by Barlow's fellow X Factor
judge Tulisa Contostavlos and the Take That member confessed to The Guardian
that there were "a couple" that he hadn't heard of.
