While Anne Hathaway showed off her SERIOUS vocal prowess during her Saturday Night Live opening monologue - and some equally serious CRAZY during a HIGHlarious parody of Homeland - Rihanna was ALSO on hand to provide musical accompaniment for the evening!
And luckily for us, the starlet used the opportunity to debut a brand new track from her upcoming album, Unapologetic!
Ch-ch-check out Stay (above)!
WOW! It's been a long time since we've heard her tackle such a straight-up, simple ballad!
But seriously, as far as we're concerned, she's never sounded more vulnerable…and STUNNING!
Just another gorgeous step in Rihanna's ever-evolving sound! LOVE!
