Deconstructed with WATT…
“Stay” is one of many hits (my personal favorite) from Post Malone’s No. 1 album beerbongs & bentleys and peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 in May. The song features co-production from WATT, who previously collaborated with Post on his 2016 song “Feeling Whitney,” another personal favorite off his Stoney album.
Producer WATT tells Genius. “Right now in music, it’s all blurred. You hear amazing guitar in urban records and you hear 808s in pop music. People want live instruments again and there’s a cool way to use it all. Post is the millennial and he’s influenced by so many different types of music. He called me and he was like, ‘I want to go in and I want to make folk music. And I want to make some stuff with guitars and live instruments.’”
The song was originally called “George Forever” for over a year because it just reminded them of George Harrison.
