Jimmy Napes has much to celebrate after taking home four Grammy Awards on Sunday night for his songwriting contributions to Sam Smith‘s hit single, “Stay With Me” and Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be” (Best Dance Recording). Not one to rest on his laurels, however, the British producer and singer puts the focus back on his latest venture by dropping his second solo track — following debut single “Give It Up” — from his upcoming The Making of Me EP. Kicking off with a swell of melancholic strings, the title track, which was produced by MJ Cole, seems to have all the makings of a soaring pop ballad. That is, of course, until Jimmy introduces the string section to a pulsating dance beat making this number more of a killer house-pop affair. Heaven to my ears!
