The Song Review

Naughty Boy – La La La – the Meaning of the Lyrics

In an interview, Naughty Boy told his whole song, and its lyrics had been inspired by the idea of refusing to listen to everybody around you. You don’t need to explain why you are breaking your heart out just for fear of not getting hurt. 

The naughty boy has a thought that sometimes it is not essential to act in a way according to your age. There should be a point when you need to act like a kid and stop bothering the people around you.

Video Interpretation of Naughty Boy – La la la ft. Sam Smith

Nevertheless, you will feel that the beat and rhythm of the song are catchy and lively, but its underlying meaning is still a bit disturbing. It is connected with emotional abuse. 

The whole video revolves around the story of an old Bolivian legend that is constantly abused and thinks that he can run away from the demons by screaming his heart out. Finally, the boy escaped with a few mismatched friends and a dog. 

Thus, lively and light production has been contrasted with the complex and deep uneasy tale of a boy.
