What do Vin Diesel, slowcore band Low, and Patti Smith have in common?

Well, besides appearing in the same sentence for the first time ever, the trio share an earnest appreciation of Rihanna’s heartfelt piano ballad “Stay”. All three have offered their own cover of the song, with Patti Smith debuting her interpretation during a recent gig celebrating her birthday.

Joined by her pianist Tony Shanahan, Smith dubbed “Stay” “the 2013 song of the year” before launching into an emotional, delicate rendition, trading verses and giving Rihanna a run for her money. Watch below (via Jezebel).
