Late Monday night (July 5), The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber teased their upcoming collaboration titled “Stay”. “This Friday. ‘Rest’ the movie,” Kid LAROI posted on Twitter, captioning a 20-second video teaser.
I do the same i told you i never would / i told you i would change even when i knew i never could, the pair sing to a thick, scintillating production. I know I can’t find anyone else as good as you / I need you to stay, I need you to stay.
The song and music video are slated for release this Friday, July 9.
“Stay” follows another collaboration between Kid LAROI and Bieber, a song called “Unstable”, as found on Bieber’s new record, Justice. Upon release, the album moved 154,000 units of album equivalent for a # 1 arc on the Billboard 200.
Earlier this year, songwriter ALDAE spoke with the American songwriter about writing “Unstable” with Delacey and Rami Yacoub. “[Delacey] had just fired his manager an hour before the session. She told us how unstable her life was. I was like ‘that’s it.’ We have unanimously decided to drive this out. It was always in my head, “he recalls.” There was something special about it. [Rami] knows how to make a seamless transition from a verse to a pre-to a chorus. I had the lyrics and a verse, and he was able to show me how to let the pre-lift in the chorus. The record sounds so effortless, but it wasn’t effortless for me. It’s so hard to do something so simple.
Swirling rumors indicate that “Stay” will likely appear on Kid LAROI’s next new project, tentatively called Fucking love 3.
