Published November 12, 2012

Rihanna hit the stage at SNL this weekend, debuting a new song on which she talks about her controversial relationship with Chris Brown. The track, "Stay," appears on Rih Rih's forthcoming album Unapologetic.

"Round and around and around and around we go," she sings on the slow-burning ballad. "Something in the way you move makes me feel like I can't live without you, it takes me out the way / I want you to stay."

On Unapologetic, Rihanna is not just singing about Brown, she's also collaborating with him. The two follow-up their "Birthday Cake" remix with a new duet titled "Nobodies Business."


In two days Rihanna will be heading out on her 777 Tour in promotion of the album. The tour features seven stops in seven countries in seven days.


"I am so excited about the 777 Tour," the singer expressed through press release. "We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus. We're practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press... it's going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock n' roll adventure, and I think when it's over it will be the coolest thing I've ever done. I'm that excited about it."


The countries are as follows: Mexico City (Nov. 14th), Toronto (Nov. 15), Stockholm (Nov. 16), Paris (Nov. 17), Berlin (Nov. 18), London (Nov. 19) and NYC (Nov. 20). However, the singer will not be revealing the venues until her arrival.
