Capital's Max caught up with Naughty Boy on the red carpet at yesterday's Ivor Novello Awards and talked about working with One Direction's Zayn, and how we might be hearing Zayn rapping sometime soon.

Max: I have to ask you, I hear your the man getting Zayn from One Direction rapping. Tell me about this, I'm a little bit scared!

Naughty Boy: Zayn's actually quite a good rapper. We've been in the studio doing some One Direction stuff and you know, he can spit bars! Of course he can! Big up Zayn and his bars. The song's amazing that we've done. Emeli (Sande) wrote on it as well and this new guy Sam Roman who's on my next single as well.

Max: I was talking to Ed Drewett before, and I said it's really interesting that this time they've split the One Direction boys to work with different people.

Naughty Boy: I think it's good for them, because they're different people at the end of the day. Your never gonna put them in a room and they're like the same thing, but I think if they're able. Zayn's. I was the first producer he's actually spent time with outside the band, so I think it's important to him that he's got someone where there is a musical chemistry, and he can actually do what he wants.

Max: I know you always work with people that you really rate. Was it natural for you to say, I'm gonna go in the studio with One Direction?

Naughty Boy: No no no it wasn't. Because I actually turned it (the opportunity) down the last two albums. I met Zayn at the Brits. We're both from Pakistani backgrounds, we both come from similar kind of backgrounds, he's from Bradford I'm from Watford. Not like that but. Well they're quite far from each other.. But in terms of how we grew up, there was a natural understanding.

Max: Have you taken Zayn out raving with you, and what was that like?!

Naughty Boy: Oh no we've been making our own parties in the studio. Cos we can't go out 'cos we've had fans camping outside the studio, it's been mad.
