New Video: Rihanna Stay

Rihanna‘s video for her emotionally naked, sonically spare and incredibly haunting power ballad ‘Stay’ features the singer with a makeup-free face and a naked body as she sits in a tub, soaking and thinking. She doesn’t sing. She makes eye contact a few times, but for the most part, it’s RiRi lost in deep thought.

It’s the bling in her ears, the tattoos on her neck and the lump in her throat that we focus on. It’s the rings on her fingers and the long nails without any lacquer that we pay attention to.

Ri’s topless, but that’s because she’s in the tub, so it’s purposeful nudity.
