Kaori Natori – Stay

1. Stay
2. You and I
3. Stay -Instrumental-

This is Kaori Natori’s 6th single and it was released on August 30, 2006. The single failed to make an appearance on the Oricon Weekly Charts.

Stay really surprised me when I first heard it because it is extremely different from anything Kaori Natori has previously done. It’s probably her most unique song to date as well because Natori normally sings mature dance / pop music with an R&B edge (with the occasional slow track), and this song is something completely out of her genre. For starters, it’s a rockish track with electric guitar, drums, and even a prevalent string arrangement. Natori’s smooth vocals actually compliment the music rather well, and she adds more emphasis into her voice during the chorus.

The B-side, You and I, is more like Natori’s actual style of music. It’s a calming track with great acoustics and light beats. She’s definitely in her comfort zone with this track because the vocals are very nice and controlled. It’s the perfect balance to the A-side.

Overall Rating

4 stars
