  3. I loved "Photographs," but at the same time, I feel like it's a lesser "3 Words." Imagine being will.i.am and giving the better track to Cheryl Cole.
    I was obsessed with "Cry" in 2007. I love the melodrama.

  4. Stay is her best ballad, along with Fire Bomb, Get It Over With... but while we're on the topic of Rihanna ballads, I'd like to say this:

    As Real As You And Me is the most underrated song in her entire discography. It was completely ignored due to the dumb movie soundtrack it was part of, but it has some of her best vocals, and lyrically, it couldn't be more on-the-money with current world events.



    There could be a freak accident
    There could be a fatal disease
    I know we hate to think about it
    But it's as real as you and me
    It's as real as you and me

    We could all fall down
    Before our savior could return
    I know we hate to think about it
    But it's as real as you and me

    If I should go
    Hold my hand
    If I should leave
    Darling, cover me, please

    The earth could quake to ruin
    We could drift off in our sleep
    I know we hate to think about it
    But it's as real as you and me

    It's as real as you and me
    The ocean crushed the shore
    And take us down forever more
    I know we hate to think about it
    But it's as real as you and me

    If I should go
    Hold my hand
    If I should leave
    Darling cover me, please

    I know we hate to think about it
    But it's as real as you and me
    It's as real as you and me

  9. Most certainly a power ballad at the very least to these ears.

  10. Good god, anything with a BPM lower than a heartbeat is a ballad yeah? We’ve got a lot to work with.

  11. My best Rihanna ballads would be;
    1. Love On The Brain
    2. Cold Case Love
    3. Russian Roulette
    4. G4L
    5. Stay

    With an honourable mention to Good Girl Gone Bad which I’m not sure if that’s more a mid tempo?? Yes it probably is.
     
  12. Stay >>>>>>>>>
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Unfaithful>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The rest.

  13. These are all great. The drums kicking in on Cold Case Love is still a moment, even more than a decade on.

    Vocally, Unfaithful is barely a step up from that ill-advised Mariah cover at her high school talent show.
     
  14. ...

    Close To You is easily her best ballad.

  18. "Kiss It Better" and "G4L" are hardly ballads, they are more mid-tempo.

    But both are amazing, that I agree with.

  19. Kith Ith Better is far too sexy to be a ballad.
