La La La by Naughty Boy

Balans Regular         

La La La is the second single form Naughty Boy's album Hotel Cabana. It was released on 2013.

The music video revolves around an oral Bolivian legend from the 19th century which concerns a boy who fled abusive home and found a street dog which has accompanied him since then. Being in the streets he discovers he has a special talent of percepting people's troubles which he can heal by screaming. The music video deliberately alludes to the story of the Wizard of Oz in an effort to conceal the legend from those unfamiliar with it.
