WATCH: Zedd, Alessia Cara Go For A Ride In 'Stay' Video
Everything can change in an instant -- this is a concept of Zedd's new music video for "Stay," which features Canada's Alessia Cara.
In the song, Cara sings, "All you have to do is wait a second/Your hands on mine/The clock is ticking, so stay."
For the video, Zedd teamed up with director Tim Mattia (Troye Sivan, Halsey, The 1975) and stepped into his acting shoes.
We see Zedd and Cara wake up to go about their day, then rewinding to find out how it could be different by literally waiting a second. Zedd is on his way to the elevator with Cara inside, and eventually he just makes it just before the doors close. Then, after becoming friends, they take a ride in one really cool convertible to spend the day together. But in the end, everything changes in an instant (no spoilers here, you'll have to watch the video to find out what happens!).
Zedd tells iHeartRadio exclusively of having to step into an acting role in this music video:
"It was my first time working with them [Tim Mattia], and it was also my first time really acting. I've had a little role in 'Beautiful Now,' but I really suck at acting," he said. "So he promised me he can make me look like a good actor, and I think he did a really good job because I really can't act and it almost looks like I can. So, thanks Tim."
Since the release of "Stay" at the end of February, the song has been climbing the charts and just broke the Top 10 on the US Top 40 Radio chart and is No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100.
