Never shying away from a tough cover song, Thirty Seconds To Mars took Rihanna‘s heart string-pulling “Stay” head on.

With brother Shannon on the drums and Tomo Miličević on keys, Jared Leto belted out the pop princess’ lyrics with conviction and scratchiness making the song his own during the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session today (September 17). The trio also performed “Do Or Die” from their most recent release LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS.
