Riddims of the Week (23/06/08): Jay Sean - Stay (Boy Better Know Remix)

Lifted straight from My Own Way - which dropped in May – Jay Sean is readying his new single Stay. Set to follow on from where Ride It and Maybe left off the R&B star has added a grimey refix to b-side. Sitting alongside the Soundbwoy edit and the Dubai Shadow dub is the Boy Better Know remix which features Skepta, Frisco, Chipmunk and Jammer

“I’ve known Skepta, Wiley and others for ages,” Jay said of the remix. “Long before the Rolex song. We’d always wanted to hook up on a track and I love what we did with Stay, completely spinning the sentiment around. Originally, the track was about trying to prevent a break-up, begging a girl to stay, but it was 5 lads in the studio and we were all like, ‘Yeah, so what, leave if you want to’.”

Stay is out in July. Watch out for a cameo from Jay Sean in Skepta’s forthcoming Rolex Sweep video.
