Stay- Rihanna X Mikky Ekko

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


I had just finished out of secondary school then, in 2012, when this song was released. I had never heard of Mikky Ekko before then, and that was probably the last i heard of him. The melancholy chords show from the start of the song, the mood of the music to expect... However, this is a song that beats the expectations of the start and only gets better.

The song talks about two lovers who although wanting each other, are faced with realities of life and it's toll on their love. They both wish that things were much simpler, and they could stay together. It remains to see if they did stay together, but i think that depends on if love truly conquers all( in their case)

I hope you enjoy this here rendition of this iconic song from me and the beautiful @khaleesii :)

I have played this song with the capo on the 5th fret.

The actual song is not on the same key, and maybe not the same chords. Check it out at the bottom of this post.


Lyrics & Chords


C Dm Am. (G Am)x2
All along it was a fever
G C Dm Am. (G Am)x2
a cold sweat, hot headed believer
G C
i threw my hands in the air
Dm Am (G Am)x2
said show me something
C Dm Am (G Am)x2
he said if you dare, come a little closer
F F F F Am G
Round and around and around and around we go
Am G
oh oh
F F F
now, tell me now, tell me now
F
tell me now you know
C Dm Am
Not realy sure how to feel about it
G Am G Am
something in the way you move
C Dm Am
makes me feel like i can't live without you
G Am G Am
and it takes me all the way
C Dm Am (G Am)x2
i want you to stay

G C Dm Am (G Am)x2
It's not much of a life your'e living
G C Dm Am (G Am)x2
it's not just something you take, its given

F Am
but i'm the only one who needed saving
F
cuz when you see the light
F G
it's hard to know which one of us is caving

C Dm Am
Not realy sure how to feel about it
G Am G Am
something in the way you move
G C Dm Am
makes me feel like i can't live without you
G Am G Am
and it takes me all the way

One of my favourite songs from Rihanna and you guys killed it.

@khaleesii your singing gets better by the day and @almostsober you play and sound wonderful as always.

I also liked the emotions you guys put into the whole thing..
What is music without the right emotions??
Powerful duet guys.
So touched by this performance I must confess.

I love love it.❤❤❤
Thank you for sharing

Thank you @benii
Yes emotions can be powerful, I have tried to work on that recently. @khaleesii always teases me about that, so it's hard to forget. This video was made over a month ago, so my emotions were still shit.

Finally, it drops after thousands of years, it felt like I was watching something new because of how long it's been 😆

Ouu, I remember, @mipiano, this is the video we were arguing about with the emotions and stuff.

I see @almostsober here as someone who focused but also gave place to show emotions!! :)))

Arguing? lol

Ok, I don't know the whole story and how it was maybe in the first take but it is cool now 😎

He looks focused but at the same time, I feel like he was lost 😆 maybe that's just me or it's just because I enjoy teasing him.
