Rihanna strips down in the vulnerable video for “Stay,” the second single off her seventh album Unapologetic. A makeup-free RiRi, who just won her seventh Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video at last night’s awards, soaks in a bathtub while singing the emotional ballad.
“The video was really, really simple. I pretty much stayed put in a bathtub and we shot it really tight,” she told Ryan Seacrest of the Sophie Muller-directed clip (Beyoncé, No Doubt).
The video co-stars Mikky Ekko, who penned the song. “I kinda fell in love with the tone of his voice so we wanted to keep him a part of it,” she said of the Nashville singer-songwriter.
