Two months after they first teased their collaboration, Alessia Cara and Zedd have officially released their breezy new tune called “Stay.”
Zedd channels his inner Daft Punk on “Stay,” infusing slinky vocoders on the drop section of the electro-pop track. While Cara seems like an unlikely pairing for the Grammy-award winning DJ/producer, her powerhouse voice is undeniably infectious.
“Waiting for the time to pass you by / Hope the winds of change will change your mind / I could give a thousand reasons why / And I know you, and you’ve got to,” Cara optimistically coos in the first verse.
“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 explained in a press release. “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.”
