Riff: Rihanna – “Stay”

Nov 19, 2012

It’s not much of a life you’re living/It’s not just something you take, it’s given

from Stay lyrics by Rihanna

Rihanna tries to beat Adele at her own game with this piano-led torch song about how she couldn’t survive without her true love. Unknown singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko’s endearing contribution won’t do his career any harm, but it’s all a bit too limp to produce the tearjerking effect it’s aiming for.
