New Music: Zedd feat. Alessia Cara - 'Stay'

  /  02.23.2017

After working with Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Kesha, and Haley Williams, Zedd adds another powerful songstress to his résumé, tapping Alessia Cara for his newest single, “Stay.”

Sure to be a club and radio pleaser, “Stay” blends Alessia’s unique voice with Zedd’s genre-bending production for a dance-ready song. Premiered with a beautiful landscape and mirror-filled lyric video, the track adds robotic elements and drum line sounds under Cara’s melodies.

“All you have to do is stay a minute,” she sings. “Take your time / The clock is ticking so stay / All you have to do is wait a second / Your hands on mine / The clock is ticking so stay.”

Zedd and Alessia met at the HALO Awards in 2016. From there, the two connected and eventually worked together on this infectious collaboration.

“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,” said Zedd. “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, meanwhile, says this is a new level for her. “It still feels like me, just an elevated pop sound,” she explained. “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…Zedd was really hands on and made sure I was involved in every part of the process.”

On April 3, Zedd will bring together Machine Gun Kelly, Macklemore, Bebe Rexha, Camila Cabello, Miguel, Skrillex, Incubus, and Tinashe, among others, for his WELCOME! fundraising concert benefitting the American Civil Liberties Union.
