Daddy – Emeli Sandé featuring Naughty Boy (2011)
This Scottish singer-songwriter caught the music industry’s attention when she was featured on a couple rappers’ singles in 2009 & 2010. She has since written songs for some big-name UK acts and landed her own recording contract. Last fall, she collaborated with rapper Professor Green, resulting in a UK #1 hit. Her debut album landed at the top of the UK charts when it was released in February. Based on what I’ve heard thus far, she could see similar results when it lands in US stores next month. Enjoy!
