‘AGT’ Winner Bianca Ryan Goes Viral on TikTok After Writing Her Own Version of ‘Stay’
Bianca took the original melody of the song and put her own spin on it. In “Stay” from the male perspective, The Kid Laroi sings about not being able to change for his partner. In Bianca’s version, the lyrics are heartbreaking. She goes through all of the emotions that someone feels when they fall out of love and have been betrayed.
The original version is from the perspective of the guy acknowledging his mess-ups and wanting the girl back. Bianca’s version basically tells the guy who left her brokenhearted to go home. It’s pretty empowering. Bianca sits at the piano in the music video singing “Told me you love me/But I see the way you look at her” instead of “I told you I’d change/Even when I knew I never could.”
