Mikky Ekko made a name for himself in a huge way when he let Rihanna record "Stay" for her last album, Unapologetic. He got to tag along at the Grammys and even visited the upper echelon of the Billboard 100 right alongside the pop superstar - those royalties can't hurt neither - but more than anything it showcased Ekko's substantial gifts as a songwriter. We loved his 2013 single "Kids" and eagerly anticipate what he has in store in 2014, in the meantime check out his original demo for "Stay":

Can you blame Rihanna for snatching this one for herself?
