Acclaimed Music Video Director Sophie Muller‘s (Gwen Stefani, Beyoncé, Shakira) first Video of 2013 happens to be the second Single Stay, from Rihanna‘s latest Disc, Unapologetic. The Track, which Rihanna performed last night at the 55th annual GRAMMY Awards also features the Vocals of hotly-tipped Newcomer Mikky Ekko whom duetted with her last night.
Perhaps it was Label issues or perhaps it was just an awkward fit to have relatively unknown Ekko appear in the Video, but all we see here is a ponderous Rihanna in a bathtub – a couple close calls with the coverage – in all likelihood thinking about Chris Brown.
The Video isn’t scheduled to premiere until tomorrow, but it’s been leaked for our viewing pleasure!
Nashville-based Singer/Songwriter Mikky Ekko is on the verge of something huge and if he looks rather familiar, that would be beacuse he’s featured on Rihanna‘s latest Single, Stay. Ekko, whose birthname is John Sudduth, was introduced to the World last night, duetting with the Barbadian-born Pop Princess at the 55th annual GRAMMY Awards. That Track currently sits at number 58 on the Canadian Hot 100 and you can expect that to improve.
Ekko, just released the Video for his latest Single, Pull Me Down, a beautiful slow-burning Ballad which is at once will appeal to Fans of Gavin DeGraw and Gotye. Insiders already are tipping him as perhaps 2013’s greatest Breakthrough Act and we just may see him next year in-the-running for Best New Artist.
