While visiting the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge the other day, Thirty Seconds to Mars gave fans a little surprise when they performed Rihanna’s hit song, “Stay.” To say that fans were intrigued by the cover by the band would be an understatement since almost everyone has had the same reaction to the song; it was freaking amazing.
While you think that the original version by Ri-Ri pulled at your heart-strings, the version featuring frontman Jared Leto taking on Rihanna’s role on vocals while Leto’s brother, Shannon took to the drums and Tomo Miličević took on the keys to round out the beautifully sad song.
The video from the performance can be seen below.
Thirty Seconds to Mars recently released their new album, Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams, back in May. And for those of you wondering, the band did perform another song (their current single, “Do or Die” to be exact), but it doesn’t really look like anyone cared about that one.
