Rihanna dreams of love in new 'California King Bed' video: Watch it here

In the video for her new single “California King Bed,” Rihanna‘s man is close, but so far.

As her head sits on his chest and her hand rests on his abs, she wonders if she’s the only one thinking what they have is love. Coming off her run as a dominatrix in her “S&M” clip, this is a smart pick to follow.

Instead of being in complete control, here she is—vulnerable, open, and unsure. The video captures the feel of “King Bed,” not that it’s a difficult one to grasp. Check it out after the jump:

What do you think of Rihanna’s latest incarnation?

      Well, rumor has it she got some serious “help” from Priscillea Renea, the young singer who co-wrote the song and provided vocals as well.
      This video is cute though.

    Everything she does and sings about is like pop PORN anyway, so she should do Playboy and then go away for a couple of years, so sick of her, so overexposed, wish EW would write about that intead of being on a Rhianna lovefest.

    Rhianna + half-naked again + poor singing ability = still boring the heck out of me.

  • Jk

    THIS SONG IS AWFUL. So cliche. Ugh.

  • Michael

    Not even close to a strong singer. The song is absolutely weak. Rihanna needs to find better material to call her own. She really doesn’t have it in her.

  • jared

    I really liked it. Felt closer to her “Only Girl in the World” video & vibe. I’m also relieved they didn’t literally show each body part, ,touching, as she named them.

  • Sean OConnor

    I like the song a lot, nice change of pace from some of her more recent stuff. Actually reminds me of Unfaithful a little bit. The video was OK, a little boring IMO

  • Adele’s Fat A$$

    Adele’s Fat A$$ ripped off Cee-lo’s Crazy but ya’ll buy her fat a$$…lol

    • Ben

      dude you said this exact same thing in the Lady Gaga blog about her new song… get a life.

  • Katie

    Rihanna absolutedly has no singing ability at all. She’s a puppet of the music industry. Song and video are boring. She’s as overexposed as they come, 5 albums in 5 years. Is this like the 1000th single she’s releasing from this album? Rather than take a bow, take a break Rihanna. We’re getting sick of you.

  • Nicole

    I see the girls are mad. Probably “Run The Flop (Beyonce)” fans.

    Noone’s getting sick of Rihanna – she has had 5 #1’s in the past year lol and one just 2 weeks ago.

    The video and song are gorgeous.

    • yalie

      you’re immature.

  • l

    I wonder if she’s get a free bed for the endorsement? Lol

  • Claudia

    I’m actually a Beyonce and Rihanna fan. Nicole please don’t act like Rihanna didn’t have the Wait Is Ova as a first single from Rated R. She released a video for that song, as soon as she released it, too. Beyonce hasn’t released a video or did performance. I wouldn’t count out Run the World out just yet. Anyhoo, this was my favorite song on Loud. The video turned out nice.

  • Patty

    Riri’s strong suit is never ballads because she’s not the strongest singer. She always needs to keep it uptempo. This song always bores me on the CD. Video is ok.

  • Krista

    Rihanna cannot sing and has no real talent. It’s funny to hear her sing live, but especially when she sings ballads. Anybody remember Te Amo another one of her ballads. I guess she thought a provocative video would sell that one, too.
