“I was working on some stuff with William Orbit, who was working on the Britney stuff,” Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, explained during a stop by Idolator’s studio this week. “I haven’t done anything for [Britney Jean]. It was more a thing where I wasn’t able to come to L.A. at the time…because I was promoting ‘La La La’ around the world.”
“La La La,” which features vocalist Sam Smith, is slated for a full US release in early December.
Naughty Boy went on to express his admiration for Grammy winner Orbit by noting, “I think I was more excited about the William Orbit bit than the Britney, to be honest, because the Ray Of Light album, Madonna, is my favorite Madonna album, and he did that.”
Incidentally, we tend to think Ray Of Light is a pretty great album, too!
