Bajan quartet Cover Drive have reunited with Naughty Boy on new material for their upcoming sophomore album.

Naughty Boy initially produced and co-wrote songs for Cover Drive along with regular collaborator Emeli Sande. However, the recorded material did not make the final cut of Cover Drive’s debut album due to a change in music direction.

Notable songwriting and production credits by the hitmaker – real name Shahid Khan – include Alesha Dixon’s “Radio” [Asylum Records], Leona Lewis’ “Trouble” [Syco Music] and Cheryl’s “Craziest Things” [Polydor Records].

Naughty Boy’s debut album “Hotel Cabana” – featuring guest appearances from Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Ella Eyre, and Chasing Grace – is now available for download via iTunes in partnership with Virgin EMI Records.

Furthermore, he has contributed to the next projects by Emeli Sande [Capitol], Rihanna [Roc Nation], Jess Glynne [Atlantic], Tamera Foster [Syco Music], Ava Lily [Naughty Records] and Tanika Bailey [Virgin EMI].

Meanwhile, Cover Drive are expected to release their second studio collection – boasting further productions and songwriting contributions from Mac and Phil, Will IDAP, and Dayo “Ms. D” Olatunji – later this year.

The still-untitled project serves as the follow-up to 2013’s “Bajan Style,” which debuted at number fourteen on the UK Albums Chart and spawned hit singles including “Twilight” and the Jonathan Rotem-produced “Lick Ya Down.”
