Video: Naughty Boy – “Lifted” ft. Emeli Sandé

 

People may recognize British producer Naughty Boy’s work on Emeli Sandé’s wildly successful debut album, Our Version of Events. He’s now teamed up with the vibrant singer for his own project, Hotel Cabana. “Lifted” is a spirited, upbeat song with a characteristic passionate vocal delivery from Emeli. Watch the video above and soak up the grandeur – absolutely magnificent.

Naughty Boy’s upcoming debut album will include appearances from Tinie Tempah, Sam Smith, and Ella Eyre, amongst others.

Hotel Cabana drops later this year in the US!
