The Kid Laroi’s song “Stay” featuring Justin Bieber has topped charts and broken records since it came out in July 2021. Now, the 18-year-old Australian rapper might be doing a new musical collaboration with Tame Impala.
Here are the hints The Kid Laroi dropped on social media that he’s working with the psychedelic group.
The Kid Laroi’s biggest hit so far is “Stay” featuring Justin Bieber
On July 9, The Kid Laroi released “Stay” and its accompanying music video.
The song, which features Justin Bieber, peaked at number 1 on the Hot 100, becoming Laroi’s highest-charting single in the United States.
According to The Daily Mail, “Stay” has maintained the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for six weeks so far.
This record ties the song for the third-longest streak by two or more co-billed male artists in the chart’s 63-year history.
The song ties “Say, Say, Say” by Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson from 1983, and is behind “Ebony & Ivory” by Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney from 1982 at seven weeks and Despacito by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee (feat. Justin Bieber) with 16 weeks in 2017.
With so much success from his collaboration with Justin Bieber, it makes sense that The Kid Laroi would want to create more music with other artists.
