    LISTEN: Zedd, Alessia Cara – “Stay”

    With Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, and Zedd releasing new music this Friday, it seems like it’s a battle between the mainstream pop-EDM master class.

    The single debuted exclusively on Spotify today (Feb. 22) and it is more than likely going to appear on the GRAMMY-winning duo’s upcoming debut album, skated for a later release date.

    Unlike their other most-recent releases, Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers does not contribute any vocals on this track that his fellow Chainsmokers Alex Pall referred to as “one of the dopest songs we’ve ever written.”

    The one true highlight of the show was just that: the musician’s connection with his crowd. Coming across as slightly inhibited once more »
