Video: Rihanna’s Somber Bathtub Ballad ‘Stay’

She's naked as a jaybird, but it's still going to break your heart.

Rihanna follows up her Grammy performance of "Stay" with Mikky Ekko today with the debut of the song's official video, and though the clip features the singer naked in the tub for the entirety, it's not the sex-charged grind-off you might imagine. 

That's right – you're about to watch a video of Rihanna in the bathtub, and it's going to make you sad. The stark piano ballad is reflected in the minimalist clip, where the singer looks shellshocked in a bathtub in a dimly-lit room.
