British singer Pierre Lewis has released a little snippet of a new song called "Stay" on his YouTube channel and while it may only be a snippet, it really gets me excited about what's coming up next. Produced by Trap Team, "Stay" will be Lewis' first foray into a more R&B direction from his last set of more pop-leaning releases. From what I've heard, "Stay" sounds like a step in the right direction for Lewis who's 2008 debut single "Broken" was good but not good enough to make him stand out as an artist. Trap Team (signed to T-Pain's Dream Star/Nappy Boy Entertainment) may just be what the Doctor ordered to give Lewis an edgy R&B/Pop makeover.
"Stay" will be included on Lewis' forthcoming EP, Transition which is due out the first week of June. The name 'Transition' is fairly self explanatory in that Lewis is changing directions both sonically and stylistically - going through a transition if you will. Preparing for the eventual album release, Lewis also announced that he'll be shooting a documentary over the next few months with filmmaker Stewart Read, who's also worked with JLS. In addition to shooting a documentary, Lewis has been busy meeting with photographers, including Kate Murrell, who's lovely photo I'm featuring above from the artists' Facebook page. Lewis also seems to be getting noticed here in the States, according to a recent Tweet by Lewis who said that a certain major U.S. TV network is looking to use one of his songs in a hit show. AMAZING! Listen to the "Stay" snippet below and make sure you keep checking back PierreOfficial.com for all the latest updates.
