Good afternoon readers, welcome back to MikeyMix! Earlier today EDM (Electronic Dance Music) legend DJ Zedd released his latest single: a collaboration with Alessia Cara entitled ‘Stay’.
From the second the 3 minute 32 second track opens you can tell that you’re listening to a Zedd produced song: the initial beat is soft and the vocals provided by Cara waste no time in arriving.
As much as it pains me to say I am not a fan of this song, personally I believe Zedd has been lazy with this track: the track as a whole sounds too much like ‘Closer’ by The Chainsmokers and Halsey.
The vocals do not compliment the harsh beat of the song and the lyrics are also lazy (as soon as I saw that the track was called ‘Stay’ I immediately knew the lyrics would sound like Taylor Swift‘s song ‘All You Had To Do Was Stay’ and I wasn’t wrong).
Overall I’ll be giving this track a 2 out of 5 star rating: mainly because this track isn’t Zedd‘s best work but it is a Zedd song so I shouldn’t have been surprised by how little of a risk he chose to take.
The track is available for purchase on iTunes and available for streaming on all streaming sites: Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal.
Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!
