Music // "Stay" by Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko



When I started doing Music Mondays, I kind of made it a point not to feature Top 40 songs because those, I’m assuming, readers would obviously hear on the radio and I wanted this to be a place to discover new, up-and-coming music. 

That being said though, I love this song way too much not to feature it.

Rihanna is great at making chart-topping songs with the catching melodies and risqué lyrics, but this song is stripped down (literally in the video) to just a lyrical essence. You hear just how beautiful her voice is without competing with a catchy hook or beat-bumping music. It’s raw and that’s what makes this song so great and powerful. 

Because it’s just Rihanna's and Mikky Ekko's voices, the message comes through so clearly and intensely. What I love most, though, is that it’s not a clear cut love song or heartbreak song – it’s both, depending on how you relate to the lyrics. 

What do you think of this song? Tell me in the comments below.
