We may still hear new music from the late, great George Michael, says producer Naughty Boy, who worked with him a few weeks before his death in December last year.

In an interview on BBC Radio 1 on Thursday January 19, Naughty Boy stated that the two had collaborated, but that he had not discussed the "amazing" project previously because "it's just a bit bittersweet." He also revealed that he had personally reached out to Michael: "I wanted to work with him. It was something I put out there."

Michael would be the latest in a long list of big names—which includes Beyoncé and Zayn—that Naughty Boy has produced for. He confirmed that Michael was in the process of making a new album, and though he has not yet agreed to release their work together, he hinted at a release at some point, saying "hopefully the music will continue to live on and me being a part of it is just a part of my journey too."
