WATCH: Vin Diesel Sings Rihanna’s “Stay” for Valentine’s Day

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Here’s a belated Valentine’s Day treat, everyone: Vin Diesel singing a  surprisingly heartfelt (if bizarre) rendition of Rihanna’s “Stay.”

The Fast & Furious star posted the video on his Facebook page on Feb. 14, accompanied by no  explanation or context other than “Happy V Day…” By Saturday, it had racked up  more than 183,000 likes and had been shared more than 30,000 times. The majority  of his karaoke performance showcases his signature baritone — though he does  attempt to hit some high notes.


Throughout the video, the actor remains in a shadowy corner of a dark room,  partially illuminated by the projection of Rihanna’s music video on the wall  beside him. And this completely unexpected (and unlikely) performance comes  without a hint of irony. The 45-year-old action star seems genuinely dedicated  to belting out “Stay” to the best of his ability.

It does get kind of weird at the end, when he closes out by saying “Happy  V-Day, amore” three times and then blows a kiss. But hey — his 39  million Facebook fans seemed to enjoy it regardless.
