"Stay" is the debut single by American R&B singer Ne-Yo, from his debut studio album In My Own Words (2006). It features rapper Peedi Peedi and produced by Ron "Neff-U" Feemstar.

The video for "Stay" premiered on BET and VH1 in September 2005, and on TRL in November 2005. The single failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released in the U.S. in 2005, however, the song proved to be a success on the R&B charts, peaking at number 36, Ne-Yo's first single to do so as a solo artist.

In the UK, "Stay" was due to be released as the third single from In My Own Words. The video premiered on UK television in September 2006 on TV channel B4. The single was due to be released in the UK on October 2, 2006 but due to lack of airplay, the single was subsequently cancelled.[citation needed]
