Naughty Boy hasn’t had a major commercial breakthrough in the US yet but you have to think that it’s only a matter of time. After rising to fame as the producer of Emeli Sande‘s mega-selling Our Version Of Events LP, Shahid Khan (his real name) decided to release his own music and quickly notched up a string of top 10 hits in the UK.
The 28-year-old really struck gold, however, with “La La La” — a Sam Smith-voiced smash that topped the charts around Europe. Naughty Boy recently performed the song for our friends at PureVolume and his brilliant rendition demonstrates why it’s the perfect lead single for the US edition of Hotel Cabana (coming April 15). Watch up top.
