Earlier this year, Wande Coal announced plans to drop ‘REALMS’, his first project in six years. While we’re waiting for that, he’s been busy serving us new material since the beginning of the year, dropping the video for “Ode Lo Like” and te widely loved fan favourite, “Again”. Keeping the consistency going, we now have “Naughty Girl”, a Pheelz-produced cut which combines Wande’s storytelling chops and his established nous for club-ready jams.
On “Naughty Girl”, Wande recounts meeting a love interest, who turns out to be different from his initial perception of her. “First when I met this girl, she was looking like a sweet angel/never knew she’s a naughty girl”, he sings on the catchy hook, conveying admiration and excitement about finding out her true personality, while the verse is laden with words of affection and promises to do right by her.
Speaking to The NATIVE about the song, Wande Coal said:
“It’s a story about a girl I just met at the time. She is sweet, but super sexy, I thought she was a saint, but it turns out she was a freaky, wild, naughty’ girl”
Wande’s bubbly performance is accompanied by Pheelz’ airy piano melodies, intermittent organ and string riffs, and strident, pounding house drums. If it wasn’t for the ongoing pandemic, which has restricted the possibilities of large gatherings, “Naughty Girl” would have been a definite shoo-in for clubs and summer parties. Regardless, it’s fitting for the individual moments our rooms turn into dancefloors, joining the list of great songs that have been instrumental in keeping spirits high during this difficult period.
