Naughty Boy has revealed he is working with 80s pop legend George Michael on his first record in more than a decade
Naughty Boy is working on George Michael's solo comeback album.
The producer and songwriter - who helped launched the careers of Sam Smith and Emeli Sande - has teamed up with the Wham! legend to work on some songs for his first record since 2004's 'Patience' and he is hoping the 80s pop icon will return the favour and record a song or two for his own record.
He told the BBC: "I can't wait. 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."
The 31-year-old producer and musician - whose real name is Shahid Khan - previously revealed that he set his sights on teaming up with another musical legend and particularly wanted to feature on a track for the 53-year-old singer's upcoming new album.
Speaking recently, he shared: "I really want to get George on my album, he's an incredible artist. It would be nice to remind people what someone actually does."
The award-winning musician is also hoping his comeback album will be as huge as his previous outing, 'Hotel Cabana', which peaked at number two in the UK chart in 2013 and saw chart-topping collaborations with Emeli Sande and rapper Wiz Khalfia.
And proving that he couldn't stay away from the spotlight too long, he managed to bag R&B superstar Beyonce for his chart-topping single 'Runnin' (Lose It All)' in 2015, which peaked at number four.
