Just last month we told you that Jimmy Napes is an artist you should be keeping your eye on. The British singer/songwriter, who has helped pen hits for artists such as Disclosure, Mary J. Blige and Sam Smith is now a Grammy winner. However, this year is about Napes stepping into the forefront and getting his own time to shine.

Napes’ previous work with both Disclosure and Sam Smith has shown his ability to adapt to a specific beat and mood. “Making of Me” showcases that versatility perfectly. The song sounds like a perfect blend of influence from both Smith and Disclosure. It begins slow with violins and a piano, making you think that this could be a sweet love song. Then the beat begins to kick in and suddenly it transform into a dance record with lovable lyrics.

Listen to “Making of Me” below.
