Born in Abu Dhabi, raised in Toronto, and based in New York, SAFE’s long journey toward immortality is about to pay off. Stay collects the thoughts of the alt-R&B singer and friend of OVO Sound. He examines changing relationships (“Control,” “Wasteland”) and reasserts his independence (“On My Own”). “Damaged” and “Nobody Cares” are love/hate stories born from the rare times he’s let his guard down. “Summer’s End 2” is nostalgic, enhanced by a scuffed guitar riff that recalls Frank Ocean’s “Ivy.” Playboi Carti drops a verse on the Mike WiLL Made-It production “Paid In Full.” The mixtape is filled with ambient touches, pianos, lush synths, trap hi-hats, and 808 boom, creating an ambient Thunderdome for SAFE’s melody-driven voice to thrive.
