Tyrese – ‘Stay’

Yet one more reason why Tyrese should give up books, movies, and Twitter.

 

 

I actually admire Tyrese a lot for making this the lead single from his upcoming album. This is not the kind of song that fits anywhere on the radio right now. 

I love the retro Al Green feel to this. It even sounds like it was recorded with the background vocalists in the same room with Tyrese. There's a chemistry to the interplay between the lead and the backgrounds that I don't think you can really manufacture in the usual way. The imperfect mix of the backgrounds I think actually makes it sound even more retro than it might have otherwise.

If there were any justice, this will be a hit.
