No Regrets,[1][2][3] also translated Stubborn and Regretless[4] and Never Deplore,[5] is the translated title of a 1993 Cantonese album recorded by Chinese Cantopop singer Faye Wong when she was based in Hong Kong.[6] The title track was released in both Cantonese and Mandarin.

By the time of the album's release, Wong was already established a substantial fanbase in Hong Kong. She wrote the Mandarin lyrics for the ballad "No Regrets", released as a hit single. The similarly titled album was released in February 1993 and became an instant best-seller. Although the songs were mostly soft contemporary arrangements, a popular style in Hong Kong, it also had a few dance songs and two versions of the title track: Wong's Mandarin song, and the other with Cantonese lyrics by Chen Shao Qi (the Mandarin version is by far the more popular one).
