Genre-smashing artist Bryce Vine and EDM trio Cheat Codes have joined forces for their latest single ‘Stay’.
A fitting track for the current climate, ‘Stay’ is a brooding anthem which reminds us to live in the moment and not to take a second for granted. Combining Bryce’s soulful vocals and Cheat Codes’ slick production, ‘Stay’ echoes the fact that even when times are hard, we’ll still have the memories to keep us going until things are better again.
I know I gotta leave but I wanna stay
Take another shot for the memory
Don’t wanna leave you, I’m tryna be here
Know I gotta leave but I wanna stay
Speaking about the collaboration, Bryce said: “Me and my friends wrote ‘Stay’ almost a year ago when the world was still normal. It’s about all those good times you don’t want to say goodbye to, but you appreciate them when they’re gone. It’s about the hopefulness that those times will come back, which I think we can all relate to right now.”
“I’ve known Cheat Codes since before they were even Cheat Codes, and they just have such great energy that I really wanted to bring them a song that matched that energy, so we could feel like we were all back in those good times. I think it turned into the perfect collaboration.”
Cheat Codes added, “It’s crazy because we’ve known Bryce for almost 10 years and we always wanted to find the perfect song to collaborate on. We finally got there with ‘Stay.’ Bryce and JP Clark wrote this idea in Miami, sent it to us and fast forward to today, we have an amazing record together.
“‘Stay’ represents a feeling that we’ve all been in and reminds us it’s important to hold on to the memories and good times. Especially during a time like this we want to encourage positivity and good energy.”
