For those of you still asking, "Who that's guy in Rihanna's 'Stay' video?" here's your answer. His name is Mikky Ekko, he's a singer-songwriter (he actually wrote "Stay"), and he's not going anywhere any time soon.

His latest? "Disappear," a haunting, soulful ballad that showcase's the Louisiana vocalist's impressive pipes. According to his SoundCloud, it's still a "ruff demo," so no word on if it'll be on his forthcoming debut album, which is rumored to feature songwriting greats Paul Epworth, Dave Sitek and John Hill, to name a few.

Listen to Mikky Ekko's "Disappear" above. (And forgive us for imagining Rihanna grabbing a guest verse on the official single. We can dream, can't we?)
