Naughty Boy, the man behind some of the biggest hits in the UK over the past few years, is now taking his unique perspective on dreamy urban pop stateside working with some of the biggest artists in the world.
And no one really gets much bigger than the undisputed Princess of Pop Britney Spears who has recruited the ‘La La La’ hit maker to work his magic on her forth coming eighth studio album expected for release later this year.

The ‘Baby One More Time’ icon has been working hard with executive producer Will.i.am on the record and has now turned to Brits Naughty Boy and William Orbit to help create her most exciting album yet.
The super producer told EntertainmentWise: “It’s different. I’m a fan of his (Orbit) so it’s just amazing to be doing something exciting with him and he’s working on the tracks at the moment. I think the sessions are in a couple of weeks.”
The album follows 2011’s smash hit Femme Fatale which topped the Billboard Top 200 and peaked at number eight in the UK including a blend of dub step, techno and trance influences to take the super star in a brand new direction.

However, Naughty Boy told us this time round fans can expect a pure pop album insisiting: “I wouldn’t do anything that dub-steppy I wanted to keep it pop. I’m a big fan of pop music and that culture so I definitely want to keep that going but in my own kind of way and my own kind of style. I’m not trying to make any kind of record you would have heard before. As a producer you want to be able to do that,keep it original.”
We honestly couldn’t be more excited to hear the results!
Meanwhile, Naughty Boy is preparing for the release of his own solo album ‘Hotel Cabana’ featuring a whole host of incredible artist including long term collaborator Emeli Sande, Ed Sheeran and Tinie Tempah on August 23.
