The pop duo that still makes us cry to ‘Unstable’ at midnight is back at it! The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber have teamed up for another pop banger, ‘Stay,’ and while the music video has caught them in a scenic standstill, we haven’t stopped vibing to the song since morning! Listen to ‘Stay’ here!
The highly anticipated collab has landed following truckloads of requests from fans, and honestly, we’re so thankful that it did! The Kid LAROI’s unique vocals sit and blend so well with Justin’s incredible range in this song! ‘Stay’ throws in an EDM dance music feel along with a signature The Kid LAROI punk-rock pop theme! The melody and the catchy chorus are stuck in our heads, and we’re not even complaining! This collab is truly *chef’s kiss!* Oh, and did we mention that one note hit by Justin that pulled our jaws to the floor? *chef’s kiss* again!
Time stands still in the music video!
With a music video directed by Colin Tilley where the world has stopped spinning, ‘Stay’ is a visual mood refresher too! It opens with shots of The Kid LAROI floating over his bed, and slowly progresses to float-walking in the room and then taking to the streets. Everything else is static, except for the only two people in the video we stan!
Beautifully filmed aerial shots feature Justin on top of a high building delivering a fiery second verse! The trailing part of the music video takes a complete 180, as LAROI and Bieber find themselves amidst people moving in super high motion! We’ll be watching this one on repeat for sure, as should you!
After the R.I.A.A certified platinum breakout hit ‘Without You’ and now ‘Stay,’ if this is how The Kid LAROI is gearing up for the third and final chapter of his mixtape series F*CK LOVE (OVER YOU), we are so here for it! Set to drop later this summer, the new era for The Kid LAROI has arrived, and we are totally on board!
While listening to ‘Stay’ we couldn’t help but draw parallels between the duo’s former collab on ‘Unstable.’ It seems as if the story they narrated earlier this year is continuing a few years later down the line. We wonder if, “There were times I couldn’t even breathe, but you never once abandoned me,“ is a precursor to “I know that I can’t find nobody else as good as you, I need you to stay, need you to stay.“ Do you feel it too?
