[R&B/Pop] Naughty Boy – La La La (Feat. Sam Smith)

Naughty Boy
La La La (feat. Sam Smith)

“La La La” is probably one of the most universally recognized phrases in all of music. It can be used as a replacement for almost any term, express any mood, and it resonates with nearly everyone. Because of that it seems like it’s used in just about every song, and almost every artist has at least one song using it as a title. Despite its widespread use however, British producers Naughty Boy and Komi are seemingly able to breathe new life into the term. As a sucker for anything with a Bollywood vibe, Naughty’s keen sample caught my ear right away, but it was the soulful vocals of Sam Smith that kept my attention on this wonderful pop tune. “La La La” is just the second single from Naughty Boy’s upcoming Hotel Cabana project, with the first being “Wonder” featuring Emeli Sandé.

After spending some time behind the scenes, Scottish singer/songwriter Emeli Sande has been making her name in the mainstream industry with her critically debut Our Version of Events. Now crossing over into international success, she pairs with Compton rap-star Kendrick Lamar for the US release/remix to “Next to Me”. Although a powerful ballad before, the addition of the aggressive and gritty two verses from the West coast emcee make for an interesting R&B/Hip-Hop collaboration. Hopefully this mix will warrant a lot of new buzz for the overseas star. Take a listen below.
