Vin Diesel Covered Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ and It’s Incendiary

By Kevin Rutherford

Vin Diesel likes covering things — his rendition of Rihanna’s “Stay” from last September is certainly an indication of that.

But instead of being a one hit wonder, Diesel is back with a new cover of one of the songs of the now: in this case, it’s Sam Smith‘s smash hit “Stay With Me.”

As he makes the rounds to promote his new movie Guardians of the Galaxy (out this week), Diesel covered the song in the studios of U.K. radio station Capital FM. Much like his “Stay” cover, it’s… well, it’s Vin Diesel covering a pop song, which should have gotten you to click anyway.

Diesel spends much of the song in his lower register, but even he can’t stay down there the whole time, floating into a lofty falsetto that brings down the house.

Perhaps the best part of this story is that Smith has already seen the video and appropriately freaked out, calling it “surreal.”

Smith’s “Stay With Me” is currently one of the top songs in the U.S., sitting at No. 5 on Radio.com’s real time charts.
