Leaving the glitz and glamour at the door, Rihanna shows the soft and emotional side of herself in her new music video for "Stay" — the follow up to her hit “Diamonds.”
The 24-year-old beauty’s new haunting clip shows her without makeup (she still looks stunning!) as she bathes naked for the entire duration – four minutes and eight seconds.

Singing lyrics such as, “Something in the way you move/Makes me feel like I can’t live without you,” it’s not hard to believe that these words are directed toward a certain someone – on-again boyfriend Chris Brown, perhaps? The track is the second single off her hit album, Unapologetic – her third single, “Pour It Up”, is currently inching its way up the Billboard Hot 100.
The video also includes Mikky Ekko, the singer who collaborates with Rihanna on the track.
Just two days ago, the Barbadian superstar and Ekko wowed the Grammys crowd with their live rendition of the somber song.
Also in attendance was Chris, who gave his leading lady a standing ovation at the end.
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she recently said about their reconciliation. “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
Though the couple went public at the Grammys on Feb. 10 – their first time in nearly four years – RiRi’s hinted at their romantic reunion with private Instagram pics for months leading up to the event.
And as she declares, if she’s happy, that’s all that matters. Watch the clip below.
