California King Bed by Rihanna.

Posted on the 29 November 2011 by Melodicwisdom

The first time I ever listened to Rihanna was in her duet with Eminem in Love the Way You Lie. I really liked the song and thought she did well with it. Shortly after, I heard she was releasing a new album with “Love the Way You Lie Pt. 2″ and since I liked the song so much, I decided to give it a listen. However, the song I chose for today’s entry didn’t really get my attention until recently. I can actually relate to it because there’s a guy I really care about in California. I don’t know when I’ll see him again but I’ll always hope that maybe we’ll be together someday.

California King Bed was released as a single in May of 2010 from her fifth album, Loud. The song was written by Andrew Harr, Jermaine Jackson, Priscilla Renea, and Alex Delicata. It peaked at #37 on Billboard’s Hot 100 after several weeks of fluctuating on the charts. However, it went to #1 in Poland and Slovakia and made the Top 5 in Australia, Austria, Germany, and New Zealand.

Even though it didn’t do well on US charts, it was actually chosen from a fan poll that was set up on Rihanna’s website. Out of four choices, the song with the highest number of votes would be the next single. Calfornia King Bed won.
