Rihanna returned to the Saturday Night Live stage as musical guest this weekend to sing her new single “Stay” from her upcoming album Unapologetic.
Ahead of the November 19 release of Unapologetic, Rihanna hit the SNL stage to sing two songs from her new album, the seventh of her career. After giving fans “Diamonds” earlier in the show, Rihanna then took the SNL stage to sing “Stay”.
With Anne Hathaway serving as host, Rihanna was in fine form this weekend on SNL despite romance rumors that she and singer Chris Brown were back together.
On Friday, both Rihanna and Chris Brown publicly denied that they were romantically involved despite their collaboration on the song “Nobodies Business” from Unapologetic. Last week Rihanna released the tracklist for Unapologetic that confirmed her collaboration with Brown on the new song.
Prior to “Nobodies Business,” however, Rihanna and Chris Brown were allegedly spotted together at a basketball game, which sparked rumors that the couple were back together.
“No,” was the answer from both Rihanna and Chris Brown on Friday.
The following night, Rihanna performed “Stay” on Saturday Night Live to gear up for Unapologetic.
