Zedd made waves with his newest song featuring Alessia Cara, entitled “Stay.” With a newer, slightly pop sound and some sweeping synths, not to mention Alessia’s beautiful voice, “Stay” was an instant hit. This week, “Stay” continues to climb the charts as it officially enters the top 10 on the US Top 40 at radio, landing at #9. The single also moved up three spots to #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. Digitally, the song has garnered over 280 million streams including over 157 million on Spotify where the single is #4 on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits and #10 on the Global Top 200 chart.
Today, the music video for “Stay” is released, directed by Tim Mattia (Troye Sivan, Halsey, The 1975), and features Zedd and Alessia in a tangled web of happenstance and coincidental timing. At its core, it’s a love story; the way it’s filmed, however, it acts as an allegory to how timing can be so, so important in life and love.
