Rihanna Stay (MeLo-X She’s Finally #1 Bitch GodMix)
Some small facts about my remix.
I sampled her performance on SNL for this remix and not the actual song on her album. I started work on this remix the same night of her SNL performance after ripping the live broadcast. It took about a week or two to truly master this mix.
There is nothing random being done here. Every drum program and movement was deliberately created by me. The track gradually gains movement with the drums being added. I actually did all the drum programming live through the whole track after getting the tempo right.
I wanted to paint a story of Rihanna talking to her pastor about the situation in the song Stay. The begging has field recordings I gathered from London and also a recording of a man preaching on a street corner in London. That mixed with ambient sounds of a catholic church helped me paint this edgy, emotional, and somewhat gloomy intro.
A month later my hard drive crashed and this session was lost forever. So I guess this is the main version of my Rihanna Stay remix there will ever B.
