Naughty Boy's first number one was the huge 2013 track 'La La La' featuring Sam Smith. Emeli Sande was originally pencilled in to feature on the track but due to other commitments had to turn it down.

Naughty Boy helped write and produce the majority of Emeli Sande's award-winning album 'Our Version Of Events'. He's also produced records for the likes of Britney Spears, Tinie Tempah, Cheryl Cole and JLS.
