Released 27th May 1996, Naked was written by Trevor Steel, John Holiday and Dennis Ingoldsby. This song was the defining moment when she went from “Louise from Eternal” to “Louise the solo artist”
It peaked at No.5 in the UK Album Chart which was her biggest hit at the time, then went on to be certified Platinum. Overall this song has sold over one million copies. It performed well in Europe, No.2 in Netherlands and No.13 in Iceland. It also appeared on the Australian Chart.
It was the 3rd single from her debut solo album Naked, and would’ve been pretty much hit or miss for her career as the previous single In Walked Love failed to hit the UK Top.10. Luckily it was a hit, and the rest is history.
This is my all time favourite pop moment. The video really pushed Louise to the next level with a big choreography number, working with Jamie King who had previously worked with Micheal Jackson & Madonna.
