First Listen: Dev & Enrique’s “Naked”

No secret. I love Dev. She’s my it-girl. I hope I get to record a track with her and The Cataracs one day. My dreams aside, Dev has many reasons to celebrate. For one, she had a killer year. She opened for Usher on tour alongside her production partners, The Cataracs. She released a few worldwide smashes including her solo single, In The Dark and now, Billboard named her one of the Top Ten New Artists of 2011. Oh ya, did I fail to mention that she gave birth to her daughter Emilia Lovely yesterday morning! Congratulations on behalf of us at Homorazzi.

A few weeks back, I informed you that Dev was about to release her second official single off of The Night The Sun Came Up in January and it would feature the sexy Enrique Iglesias. The song is called Naked and I am really hoping that means Enrique will show some skin in the corresponding video… am I right? Come on you’re all thinking it. I was thinking I wouldn’t hear a clip of this track until the New Year. Luckily, it leaked online and we can all have a taste.

Produced by The Cataracs, the track lives up to Dev’s earlier explanation of the tune: ““I like to think of Naked as the big sister of In the Dark, it’s more mature,” Dev says. “The song is a back and forth between a man and woman, and Enrique added flavor and Latin vibe to it.” I absolutely love the track. The addition of Enrique on your track is never a bad thing. I think it will definitely blow up on the radio and if the video is hot, consider it a home run. Give Naked a listen below.
