Naughty Boy has one of the last ever songs to be recorded by George Michael.
Naughty Boy could release one of the last ever songs ever to be recorded by the late George Michael.
The 32-year-old producer – who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, Sam Smith and Emeli Sande – has revealed he was in the studio with George in December just weeks before he tragically died at the age of 53 and the pair laid down a track.
Naughty Boy isn’t sure what he’s going to do with the track yet as he’s still coming to terms with his idol’s death but insists it is "amazing".
Speaking to UK station BBC Radio One on Thursday (01.19.17), he said: "It wasn’t like ah this big music industry arranging it – I’ve just been a fan forever. The song’s amazing but it’s just bitter sweet."
Naughty Boy – real name Shahid Khan – previously revealed the pair had collaborated when he appeared at the BBC Music Awards, revealing George had contacted him and he mentioned he loved the former Wham! singer’s music in an interview.
At the time, Naughty Boy said: "I don’t know what to expect. And, to be honest, he’s more mysterious than anyone else so I’m actually excited. I reached out and then he got back. He’s got an album coming out next year, and he’s going to be doing something for my album as well.
"This is the most interesting collaboration. It’s easier to do what’s relevant but someone like George is timeless. Naughty Boy featuring George Michael’ – it just sounds right!"
Naughty Boy is getting ready to release his second album, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Hotel Cabana’, and has been working on tracks for the LP with Mike Posner, DNCE, Emeli and Dua Lipa.
