Being one of my favourite tracks on the album, I had high expectations for the video and didn’t really know what to expect. With miscellaneous horses featuring in Rihanna’s last official video for Diamonds, I was unsure we’d get yet another irrelevant video wasted on such a good song. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised and today was presented with such a simple, yet mesmerizing video for Stay.
The video see’s 24 year old Rihanna stripped back into nothing but emotions, with just the one scene of her in the bath throughout (and Mikky standing about not really knowing what to do with himself, of course). Although clearly acting throughout the 4 minute long video, something about it really makes you feel the true emotions. Rihanna’s on/off relationship with Chris Brown has been world wide press for longer than I can remember, and it’s songs like this that really makes you realise these are peoples lives that we simply just wont leave alone.
