Future Stars: Naughty Boy (Virgin Records)

Shahid Khan, also known as Naughty Boy, is the latest producer to decide he wants a bit of the spotlight for himself. He will release his debut album Hotel Cabana in 2013, but the first single will be much sooner, a song called Wonder which features his regular collaborator Emeli Sandé. Like an urban equivalent of Richard X Presents His X-Factor, Hotel Cabana will feature many current music stars on guest vocals, but we'll have to see whether it will end up being a one-off or lead to Naughty Boy becoming a big name on his own, like Mark Ronson or Timbaland. So far Wonder hasn't got me particularly excited, but I'll be following the project nonetheless.
