Smooth, soul-pop king Kwabs has teamed up with 20-year-old producer/multi-instrumentalist Tom Misch and fellow soul sensation Zak Abel, to craft this beauty of a song. The Cheating On Me remix, produced by super producer in the making Tom Misch who has reworked the original, retaining its smoothness but with a little Misch injection. Fresh guitar licks, smooth pads and swelling strings lie underneath flawless vocals from two of the most talented singers in the game right now. 

Speaking about the track Kwabs says, "It was an honor to work with Zak and Tom on this new version of Cheating On Me - they're two of the most talented people I've come to know." Zak Abel agrees, "What a huge honor it was being a part of this. I recorded this standing next to Kwabs in a tiny vocal booth in Brixton; I thought it was pretty cool that he came down for the day to add the vibes with me and Tom Misch. I really wanted to get it right as Cheating On Me has always felt like such an important, honest, and real song."
