After treating the Saturday Night Live crowd to a performance of her hot new single “Diamonds” earlier in the night, Rihanna returned for a second performance. This time, the singer slowed things down and served flawless vocals with a performance of her album track, “Stay.”
Rihanna stood center stage with the spotlight just on her as she debuted the emotional song. RiRi absolutely nailed the vocals on it, ending the performance with a stunning high note.
It was a night of firsts for the pop princess. This is the first time she’s performed both “Stay” and her single “Diamonds” anywhere. What better place than during her fourth time as musical guest on SNL?!
“Stay” is taken from Rihanna’s seventh studio album “Unapologetic.” The album will be released in stores and at online retailers on November 19. Watch the performance below.
