I am not usually a fan of lyric videos but this one is pretty cool. It’s the lastest EDM track by Zedd, ‘Stay’ with Alessia Cara on vocals, and it’s hitting my sweet spot. PLUS – bonus – it’s a fab way of actually learning the lyrics so you can smash it on road trips.

Grammy award-winning artist, DJ and producer Zedd’s paring with multi-platinum recording artist Alessia Cara is a departure in style for both Zedd and Alessia. The result is contrasting an uplifting chorus with darker undertones that play into the vulnerability of the song’s lyrics.

Zedd says of the collab:

Alessia and I first met at rehearsals for the HALO awards, where Alessia, Daya and I performed together. I’ve loved her songs before but realized that she’s an unbelievable talent when we started rehearsing together so I asked her if she was interested in making music with me. 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. 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 says:

Zedd was really hands on and made sure I was involved in every part of the process. 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.
