Out a day early, fans can now listen to the new song by Zedd & Alessia Cara, “Stay.”
A far departure from his last release, a glitchy electro remix of DJ Snake & Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You,” “Stay” is decidedly pop. We’re not surprised at all that it’s exceptionally produced, but we’re a little disappointed that the drop seems to follow along quite closely with the drop trend made popular by The Chainsmokers in songs like “Closer” and “Paris.”
“I think this song is right in the middle between where Alessia is musically and where I am and that’s what’s so exciting about it,” Zedd explains. “I’ve been trying to knock down barriers around music genres and this is another step for me to walk towards a musical future where I can create any genre I want without people putting me in a box.” Alessia notes that it was an easy transition, explaining “it still feels like me, just an elevated pop sound. I don’t know that I would be in this bold on my own stuff so it’s cool to try these things with collaborators.”
