Naughty Boy lines up Justin Timberlake and Robbie Williams for Motown project

Naughty Boy has lined up Justin Timberlake and Robbie Williams for a Motown tribute project to help introduce Motown music to the younger generation after seeing the Motown Musical himself. He said:

"I went to see the Motown Musical with Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson. I’m not from that generation so I wanted to understand Motown more, the struggle they faced to get black music played on radio, the music was bringing people together.”

Naughty Boy explained:

"Justin Timberlake is a big Motown fan so we are in talks to do something with him. I want to do one with Robbie Williams, I’ve had a chat with him about it – he’s a fun guy.

"I’ve done Signed Sealed Delivered with Ella Eyre and I want to do a Spanish Motown song.”

Naughty Boy recently produced Laura Mvula's new single, a cover of The Jackson 5's 'Dancing Machine', which is out now (listen below):
