Aussie producer tyDi has a way with great singers. Working with Christina Novelli (“Fire and Load”) and Kerli (“Something About You” and “Glow in the Dark”), his electro tracks seem to inspire vocalists to write and perform emotional lyrics. That is definitely the case with ‘The Voice’ runner-up Dia Frampton, whose voice shines on “Stay.” Seemingly inspired by the country tone of her coach from ‘The Voice,’ Blake Shelton, as well as Avicii’s last album and Phillip Phillips “Home,” the uplifting euro-pop track has a bit of a country feel, but not so much as to seem out of place on dance radio. For clubland consumption, both remixes go a bit harder and aggressive, with Brad & Victor H channelling 2011 Avicii and Frank Pole sounding a little more like big room Swedish House Mafia. As with tyDi’s other releases, the video is creative, emotional, and adds to the meaning of the song. Rather than starring random models, tyDi shows his acting chops, and if for some reason “Stay” didn’t grab you on first listen, the unforgettable and heartbreaking video will move you to tears.
