The next You Decide is between Rihanna's first two successful ballads, 'Unfaithful' and 'Take A Bow'! This is a hands down win for 'Take A Bow' imo, not only her best ballad but pushing for her best overall wub.gif I kinda get the constant 'bland' criticisms it get but I got into it pretty much instantly and it's one I've came to properly love as time goes on. 'Unfaithful' meanwhile has never been anything other than bland imo, I remember it being such a let down after the incredible 'SOS'!

'Unfaithful' is still one of my favourite Rihanna songs. It is a 10/10 for me.

'Take A Bow' is a 6/10 at the most. One of her worst singles.

Definitely 'Unfaithful'. I bought it on single in 2006. I think it's one of the last singles I ever bought.

I always disliked 'Take a Shit' and it only sorta grew on me after I became a Rihanna fan and forced all of the songs I didn't like on me.
Luckily I bought the original GGGB so I don't have to skip it.

Take a Bow is very good but Unfaithful is perfect, one of her very best if not her absolute best single for me, it breaks my heart.

I always assumed 'Take A Bow' was regarded as one of her best on here while 'Unfaithful' wasn't, maybe that's me being completely blind idk laugh.gif

Looking back, I probably should give 'Unfaithful' another chance, 11 years later :') I've barely listened to it since it was released and if I ever heard it on the radio etc I'd turn it over and get SOS/another Rih song from that era instead kink.gif

'Unfaithful' by absolute miiiiiles. I have always found 'Take A Bow' so dull and overrated. But 'Unfaithful' is a great song, with my only critique being that her vocals are a bit nasally on it which prevents it from being a total 10/10. But yeah, the easiest winner to choose for these duels so far for me.

Her vocals are just about the best thing about it for me Jade ohmy.gif Even if the music wasn't as good (especially that first album :')) Rih definitely still had that star quality back then.

Unfaithful, but only by a bit. I always found Take a Bow to be quite pleasant.
