  • I've never really cared for this song. One of stargates most generic records ever. But I get why ppl loved it.

      • This is so simple, stripped down and simply beautiful. It's one of her signature ballads and kinda reminds me of STAY. Not that they are that similar, but both have than stripped down "pure music" vibe. I love it.
        "Take a Bow" is so emotional for me and I love what she did with this track. I think she recorded it in a very unique, likeable, personal and honest way and ACTUALLY expressed her feelings. It is just so good. And whenever she sings this live (e.g. on LGOE or Loud Tours) it's absolutely amazing and heartfelt.

        • Never enjoyed this. I just don't like the melody.

          • I never liked it, it's one of her bad songs
            I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

            • I still love this, it's refreshing after hearing so many uptempos from Good Girl Gone Bad.

                    • I listen to at times, but it really has that Stargate/Ne-Yo cheesiness and the fact I heard it like everywhere back in the day, makes me kinda ignore it. I have the same with Beyoncé's Irreplaceable. I still know every line though

                      • This is still my second favorite single from the GGGB era after Umbrella. The rest isn't THAT good tbh.

                        • This was very similar to Unfaithful and Hate That I Love You that kind of ignored it for years.

                          I do love the part when she sings: How 'bout a round of applause?
                          Standin' ovation and especially when she sings the chorus. I keep thinking that she is singing about Chris Brown.
                          Madonna......Rihanna....Beyonce....Michael...Janet....Prince...Mariah...Whitney

                                Rehab, maybe. The other two songs you have mentioned aged badly. Especially DSTM with that annoying sample.

                                      This still is one of her finest tracks.

                                      • She will be remembered for this (the Good Girl Gone Bad and Loud eras). Her biggest fans may hate her pop songs but she was unstoppable as a pop star.

                                            I agree. It may have been the most commercialised Rihanna but it was definitely her best era.

                                            • Whilst the hits from the GGGB era have rather aged like milk (especially DSTM, which was already dated when it came out ), this (and Umbrella) is one of the few pre-Rated R songs that I still use.

                                                  • Yup, one of my favorites as well. Every single line is memorable.
