Naughty Boy ft ROMANS - "Home" | New Music

Following a successful run of hits from from his debut LP Hotel Cabana, including the number 1 single "La La La" featuring Get Familiar worthy singer Sam Smith, Naughty Boy returns to form with his latest single "Home".

Featuring soulful newcomer ROMANS, who is set to release his own material via JAY Z's Roc Nation, the latest release from the British producer is another surefire anthemic effort that will win over hearts and minds of many with the impressive vocal display, solid progression, instrumentation and emotive lyrics. Press play below and let us know what you think in the C-Section.


Sam Smith | Get Familiar

You've probably heard of Sam Smith by now. This 21-year-old British singer's name has been on everyone's lips of late: the no-brainer of new music; President-elect for pop superstardom in 2014. 

You might've heard his star-making turns on Naughty Boy's "La La La" and Disclosure's "Latch" - the former remains one of the biggest selling singles of the last year whilst the latter is perhaps the best 'dance' song of the last ten. He can count Maxwell as one of his biggest fans, after the soul music titan spent the entire summer gushing about the Brit to his millions of fans online, and he's sold out shows in New York and LA; all without an album or even a proper single release to his name.

Interview: Naughty Boy on avoiding the industry, Emeli Sandé's rise & Hotel Cabana

The majority of us were introduced to Naughty Boy's sounds a few years before we ever caught a glimpse of him. Having taught himself to make music from the shed in his parents’ garden on a Watford estate, the British producer and songwriter, real name Shahid Khan, began furnishing homegrown rappers with beats - Bashy, Devlin and Tinie Tempah among them - before connecting with a then little-known Scottish singer, Emeli Sandé.

Their chance meeting led to an engaging musical partnership that resulted in him producing and co-writing all tracks, bar five, on her multi-platinum selling debut Our Version Of Events, which became the UK’s best-selling album of 2012. 18 months on and Naughty Boy’s own album, Hotel Cabana, debuted at number two this summer, tugging Khan to the forefront.

On a mission to delve into the character of the man behind the hits, SoulCulture sat down with Naughty Boy over a tasty curry in Covent Garden to discuss developing his craft, learning from Emeli Sandé, avoiding the industry, growth of the UK music scene and adjusting to prominence. Read more

Even though I'm a huge supporter of the duo, I'm not a fan of this live cover. The vocals and arrangement leave quite a lot to be desired when compared to the original in my opinion. Let us know your thoughts in the C-Section.
