Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran & Royal Blood lead the pack!

Jimmy Napes is shifting gears from his chart-topping songwriting skills (Sam Smith‘s “Stay With Me” and “I’m Not The Only One,” Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be,” and Mary J. Blige‘s “Right Now“) and launching a new solo career! The British artist’s latest venture is the video for “Give It Up,” a R&B-inspired, fuzzy groove.

While the song is a feel-good track, the visual itself is a dark and wild ride. The Luke Monaghan-directed clip shows the grimy tug o’war that is drug addiction. “Give It Up” is the first single from Jimmy Napes’ debut solo EP, The Making Of Me. Look out for it on March 9 via Method Records.
