The 'Lifted' producer says fans will be very surprised by the pair's team-up together.
Naughty Boy has revealed he has recorded a team-up with Lily Allen for the 'Not Fair' signer's upcoming studio album.
The 'La La La' producer says the pair have recorded an "amazing" song together, and praised Lily as a "true artist" as she prepares to make her musical comeback.
Yes I have! I actually need to send the song to her as well but I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I haven't had time to finish it," Naughty Boy revealed exclusively to Capital FM this week.
"But it's an amazing song and she was lovely to work with and a lot of fun," he explained. "And it just shows you, she could be out of the game for a couple of years but she's back in the studio, she knows exactly what she's doing and she's a true artist."
The 'Lifted' producer goes on to tease the sound behind the Lily's new song with him, promising it is a bit differ but still "sounds like Lily".
"Yeah, it's a bit more, I'd say probably it's got a bit of dancehall [vibe] and there's not a lot going on musically but her vocal is so haunting, and her lyrics as well," he added. "I think people are going to be surprised. [But] it sounds like Lily Allen."
