BlackBook Exclusive: ELEW And Rachel Brown Bring Piano Soul To Rihanna Cover ‘Stay’

Throw the fiercest rockjazz pianist, the honeyed voice of a Harvard grad with Bermuda roots, and Rihanna & Mikky’s aching hit "Stay" into a recording studio, and you get an acoustic, summer rendition that transports you to a late-night beachside bonfire. The stripped-down version – a collaboration between musician ELEW and singer Rachel Brown – showcases ELEW’s signature tender vivacity at the keys, and Rachel’s soulful dive into a song known for its yearning Rihanna-in-a-bathtub video. 

And when you’re done watching the video, get to know ELEW in our very special interview. He’s ecstasy.
