Naughty Boy, cel­eb­rated as one of the UK’s fore­most pro­du­cers and recip­i­ent of Grammy, Ivor Nov­ello, and Mobo accol­ades, returns tri­umphantly with his latest single, “Blow Trees,” which dropped today under Darco Record­ings. Fea­tur­ing the tal­ents of bur­geon­ing Manchester rap­per Tunde, Birm­ing­ham’s esteemed MIST, and Tot­ten­ham’s own Abra Cadabra, the track serves as a tan­tal­iz­ing pre­view of Naughty Boy’s highly anti­cip­ated second album. Reflect­ing on the gen­es­is of the song, Naughty Boy expresses excite­ment at col­lab­or­at­ing with this stel­lar lineup, hail­ing it as a refresh­ing depar­ture while also a nod to his roots in UK rap.

Begin­ning with MIST sets the tone per­fectly, reflect­ing the camarader­ie between the artists. Naughty Boy’s music­al jour­ney, marked by unwaver­ing determ­in­a­tion and not­able achieve­ments, has seen him cata­pul­ted from win­ning a grant from the Prince’s Trust to work­ing along­side music luminar­ies like Bey­on­cé, Rihanna, and Ed Sheer­an. Not­ably, his dis­cov­ery and sup­port of tal­ents such as Emeli Sandé and Sam Smith have fur­ther solid­i­fied his leg­acy in the industry. Amidst a bust­ling 2022, marked by diverse pro­jects includ­ing col­lab­or­a­tions with Nitin Sawhney for the forth­com­ing film ‘What’s Love Got To Do With it,’ Naughty Boy’s focus remains stead­fast on his forth­com­ing album.

With a star-stud­ded lineup of con­trib­ut­ors and a prom­ise of his most com­pel­ling music yet, 2024 is poised to reaf­firm Naughty Boy’s status as a power­house pro­du­cer in the music realm. Watch this space for what is sure to be a monu­ment­al release.
