Jay Sean – “Stay”

R&B, UK Asian

The exact opposite to “Ride It” – in this case, literally. Whilst then, it was the stellar verses that carried the song in the face of an incredibly simple chorus, on “Stay” the reverse holds true. An overwhelming influx of words spray your way, combined with clinical melodies, until you’re saved by the excellent chorus – this may be the point of the song (claustrophobic verse pertaining to the state of mind, release of the chorus), but it just feels overly fussy. If “Ride It” was the beginning, the thrill of the chase, this is the end of the relationship – an indeterminable mess that you just want to get out of your head, as soon as possible. Stay - EP - Jay Sean
