It’s not easy to cover a major pop star’s song. But RaVaughn and Kiley Dean both took on the challenge with their remakes of “Stay.” The R&B singers coincidentally released videos of their acoustic covers on the same day.
RaVaughn, who is signed to Ne-Yo’s Compound University/Motown, strips down the Unapologetic hit and makes it her own as she performs with a guitarist.
Dean, who was previously signed to Timbaland, reminds listeners that she can still sing after years away from the spotlight.
“For the past 3 years, I’ve been working with other artists and neglecting my own career in the process,” said the “Make Me a Song” singer. “It wasn’t all bad because it allowed me to find my voice again!”
She is back in the studio recording and plans to release a new song/video every couple of weeks leading up to the release of her EP. “I picked out a handful of songs that touch me, and remade them,” she said.
