Singer-songwriter Mike Posner 's debut single, "Cooler Than Me," reached No. 6 on the Hot 100 by successfully pairing the singer-songwriter's slick vocals with lush electronic textures. Follow-up "Please Don't Go" is a more plaintive ballad than the Hot 100 hit, but it employs the same electro-dance sound that has separated Posner from the pop/R&B pack. "Baby, please don't run away from my bed/And start another day, stay instead," Posner sings over Benny Blanco's frantic production. Posner's vocals are reminiscent of artists like Daniel Bedingfield  and Savage Garden , with the singer infusing each line with a soulful quality that sticks in the listener's mind. As a second offering from first album "31 Minutes To Takeoff," "Please Don't Go" is just as accessible and ripe for sing-alongs as Posner's breakout hit.
