Khan attended London Guildhall University with the intention of having a career in business and marketing. However, during his first semester he decided to drop out in pursuit of writing and producing music. He worked odd jobs, and began recording songs at his parents’ garden shed. He applied to The Princes Trust and was given a bit of money to start his own recording studio. He also appeared in “Deal or No Deal” winning money that helped him buy recording equipment. Eventually, his efforts helped him get a three-year contract with Sony ATV along with a one album deal with EMI Records.
Naughty Boy became part of the music industry in 2009, helping produce the Chipmunk’s “Diamond Rings”. He would then collaborate with Emeli Sande, working on several songs, and when she secured a record deal, Khan would help in writing and producing her songs. She released “Our Version of Events” which also raised Naughty Boy’s reputation and popularity. Soon he was working with other artists such as Alexandra Burke, and producing records for artists such as Cheryl Cole. He was also responsible for the Leona Lewis single “Trouble”, and would then write songs for her album “Glassheart”, followed byworking on several records for Rihanna.
While working on all these other projects, Khan was also working on his own album, “Hotel Cabana” which was released in 2013. The first single of the album “Wonder” featured Sande and the song would reach number 10 on the UK Singles Chart; other artists would help Naughty Boy with the album including Gabrielle and Ed Sheeran, all of whom had already worked with Khan. The second single entitled “La La La” was released, featuring Sam Smith, this time reaching the top spot in the UK. The album’s release proved to be very popular and after the album Khan started working with other artists including Britney Spears. In 2015, Khan announced that he was working on a second album featuring songs with Zayn Malik and Beyonce. The song “Runnin’ (Lose it All)” featuring Beyonce premiered last September 2015.
