Super producer Naughty Boy talks about finishing his “amazing” new track with 1D’s Zayn Malik and working with a leading US pop artist.
There’s been a lot of hype surrounding One Chance To Dance, the track from Naughty Boy, Emeli Sande, Romans and teen pin-up Zayn Malik.
And it looks like that hype is justified as Naughty Boy has said it’s likely to be the first single from their new album.
"There’s a real possibility it’ll be the first single," he told Mirror Celeb backstage at V Festival. "Look at the smile on my face. Simon loves it. He even texted me about it."
He added: "I couldn’t believe the way [Zayn] sung on this song, and I think that’s going to surprise most people. He glides on it."
He also said he'd only just wrapped up the song that day. "I finished the track today actually and sent it off for mixing."
Taking about the lads' potential solo plans, the La La La producer said he didn't think they would any time soon and said their latest musical effort was "their best album yet".
"They know the value of the unit," Naughty Boy continued.
While speaking about what he thinks of reality TV and shows like the X Factor, the 29-year-old said: "The James Arthur thing was a lesson for everyone. The public, if they can vote you in, they can vote you out.
"It's a double edged sword."
After recently working with Kendrick Lamar and Mary J Blige, he also teased that he'll be heading into the studio with a huge "American female pop singer" who approached him, but refused to spill on who it was just yet.
