Vin Diesel Covers Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’: But What Does Sam Think?


Vin Diesel stopped by Capital FM to promote his new film, Guardians of the Galaxy, when he was asked to try his hand at Sam Smith‘s tender ballad “Stay With Me.”

In the clip, the actor — dressed in aviators and a black t-shirt — belts the emotional lyrics and even adjusts his muscular voice to hit the high notes.

The video managed to make its way to Sam — who is preparing to drop the visual for “I’m Not the Only One” on Friday — and the “Latch” singer took to Twitter to give Vin his stamp of approval.

The 46-year-old movie star is no amateur when it comes to covering hit tracks. The karaoke aficionado previously covered Rihanna‘s “Stay” last September, and he also shared a video of himself dancing to Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse” and Beyoncé‘s “Drunk In Love” in January.

His movie Guardians of the Galaxy, which stars Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana, arrives in theaters on Friday.
