Somber, stripped-down and emotionally raw, Rihanna‘s performance of current single Stay was among the more surprising moments of Sunday evening’s Grammy broadcast. Today, the stirring, Mikky Ekko, Justin Parker and Elof Loelv-produced ballad receives a similarly poignant visual accompaniment courtesy of director Sophie Muller. The muted yet cinematic clip depicts the singer at her most vulnerable, delivering the song’s ambivalent lyrics while sitting, sans makeup, in the bath. Guest vocalist Ekko accompanies her from another room. Fans can can find Stay and much more on Rihanna’s Unapologetic LP, available now in both a regular and a deluxe edition.
