It’s finally time for Jimmy Napes to break out on his own! After spending the last year penning hits for some of music’s biggest acts – Sam Smith‘s “Stay With Me“, Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be“, Gorgon City‘s “Unmissable“, and Mary J. Blige‘s “Right Now” – 2015 sees Jimmy putting the spotlight on himself with the premiere of his debut single, “Give It Up“! The track serves as the lead single off his upcoming The Making of Me EP, which is due to be released on March 9 via Method Records. Produced by Howard Lawrence of Disclosure, “Give It Up” sees Jimmy laying down his smooth and soulful vocals on-top of a funky, R&B bassline that comes accompanied with sparkling synths and a softly buzzing drone. Though the song bears a different tone to his work with others, its undeniably a fresh approach that is more in line with today’s underground pop contemporaries rather than chart smashers. I’m totally on board – Get into it!
