Rihanna – “Stay” (Branchez Bootleg)

rihanna_stay

NYC’s own Branchez is another one of these producers proving that trap doesn’t always have to be about getting ratchet in the club or sippin’ on that lean. Taking the emotional ballad “Stay” from star-crossed pop star Rihanna, Branchez puts his own flavor to make this the slow jam you need. Soulful and tender, Branchez’s understated approach to the remix let’s Rihanna’s vocals take center stage. I’ve already had this track on repeat since he released it at 5PMEST. The looping piano melody is never intrusive and the trapped out snares and hi-hats give the track enough movement to keep it interesting This track alone could make up the entirety of your next mood playlist.
