Francesco Yates Shares New Single ‘JIMI’

Toronto-based Canadian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Yates makes his grand return with the release of his new single JIMI, an infectious, bold, and upbeat banger from his forthcoming 3rd album. 
I fell in love with Francesco's vocals back in 2015 when I heard him singing and playing guitar on Robin Schulz’s global smash hit Sugar and now I am happy to hear that he is back making music. JIMI finds the 26-year-old beautifully showcasing one of his most confident and alluring vocal performances to date. 
Singing about the trappings of fame and someone who steered him wrong, the song’s subject matter is a bit darker than what listeners might be accustomed to with his previous hits, but it sure pays off. Apart from his gorgeous vocals, I am particularly fond of the upbeat production that blends 90s R&B Pop with Funk filled bass lines and a prominent guitar solo that makes the song stand out even more. This is one of those songs perfect to get you in a good mood and ready for a fun night out with friends. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, Francesco Yates said,
The song came about as happy accident. I was in my home studio looking at a poster of Prince, and the line ‘Jimi Hendrix / I love you like I love my guitar’ popped in my head. And the rest of the song just fell into place after that.
