“Stay with Me” is a song by English singer Sam Smith from their debut studio album In the Lonely Hour (2014). It was released in the United States on 14 April 2014 and in the United Kingdom on 18 May 2014. “Stay with Me” is a gospel-inspired ballad that details the protagonist pleading with their one-night stand not to leave them.[1] The song was written by Smith, James Napier, and William Phillips, with Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne later receiving co-writer credits due to the song’s noted melodic similarity to Petty’s single “I Won’t Back Down”.

The song has become Smith’s most successful single to date, peaking at number one in the UK Singles Chart (becoming Smith’s third chart-topper there, second as a solo artist), topping the charts in Canada and New Zealand, and reaching number two on the US Billboard Hot 100. It has also reached top 10 status in over twelve countries worldwide. At the 57th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, Darkchild’s version of “Stay with Me” won two Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
