Naughty Boy has revealed exclusively to Ahlan! that he will be working on a new album with British phenomenon Emeli Sandé – and the dynamic duo plan on changing things up a little bit.
Speaking to us ahead of his RedfestDXB performance on Valentine's Day the hitmaker said that it is with Emeli, who rocked Sandance in Dubai on NYE, that he has the best working relationship with. He said: “I love working with Emeli and we’re going to be doing a lot of work on her second album.
“We can afford to experiment this time around, but we don’t want to move away from too much of the stuff that we did on the first [album]. Emeli is known for her big songs and songs that connect emotionally, and you know if it ain’t broke, don’t try and fix it.”
Aside from teaming up with the Ivor Novello winner, Naughty Boy also has his sights on working with the powerhouse that is Adele. He told Ahlan! “Adele is just amazing all round. She’s an awesome person and a great artist. She really has it all and is a great example in every respect.”
