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.
Zedd’s entry is here in the form of “Stay”, a snappy collaboration with Canadian hitmaker Alessia Cara reminiscent of Banks’ “Poltergeist” and Taylor Swift’s “All You Had To Do Was Stay”.
Though Cara is a stranger to this sort of electronic pop/EDM hybrid, the teenage popstar fits right in while hovering on top of Zedd’s future bass-inspired beat with magnetic, instant melodies and a standout vocoder mix in the chorus. “All you have to do is wait a second / Your hands on mine / The clock is ticking / So stay” sings Cara. Seems like the unlikely pair has a massive hit on their hands.
