Tyrese Gibson sat down with ARTISTdirect.com for a "See the Music" segment, where he shared the meaning behind "Stay," from Open Invitation, his new album dropping on November 1, 2011.
He said, "Small, short but long story…I was dating this girl and she was complaining, 'It's all about you, and it should be about us and our relationship'."
The music video itself is a powerful portrait of what eventually happened to Tyrese. He tells the story in the song and in the visuals. During the video, he finds her bags packed by the front door and he begs her to "Stay".
About the song, ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino says, "On 'Stay', Tyrese tells a poignant and powerful tale of calling out for a love not to go. His delivery is heartfelt and at points hypnotic as he brings R&B to a vulnerable and vibrant place. This is one of those ballads that you won't be able to get out of your head. It'll stay…"
