To be completely honest, when Naughty Boy’s breakout single was doing its brilliant business at the top of the British singles charts, we knew it was a sensational pop song, but wasn’t sure whether it’d translate to here on the other side of the planet. Thankfully it did, however, and it quickly ensconced itself in the ARIA top ten, later notching up an impressive double platinum accreditation.
‘La La La’ was a pure pop nugget; the kind of song that happens when perfect worlds collide… Anchored by the naughty one’s effortlessly stylish production and vocaled by Mister Smith’s stunning, emotive set of pipes, the single had one of the catchiest little hooks of 2013 and it subsequently burrowed its way into our hearts.
Smashing song. ‘La La La’ is our No.5 pop single of the year for 2013.
