is on a promotional spree as she unveiled a new single titled "Stay" on "". The straight-up and simple ballad is from her upcoming seventh studio album, "". The 24-year old singer also performed her previously released track, "Diamonds", which official music video was premiered on Thursday, November 8.

Riri's "Diamonds" performance was set up against a green screen background with lots of random images and graphics appearing behind the singer and her live band members.

"Stay" features artist Mikky Ekko and is an easy-to-listen-to keyboard-driven ballad that reminds listeners of the "Umbrella" hitmaker's true singing abilities.

"Unapologetic" will hit the stores on November 19 and will feature other artists such as and .
