RiRi and her lover's relationship is in jeopardy as they drift away from each other in this Anthony Mandler-directed music video.
Rihanna has just dropped a music video for her ballad track "California King Bed". The Bajan songstress is restless as she's lying under the sheets with her head resting on her shirtless man's chest. Wearing a white bandeau and matching shorts, she laments the distance growing between them.
"California King Bed" is lifted from Rihanna's latest studio album "Loud", and chosen as her next single through an online poll. It was showcased live for the very first time on national television when she visited Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards on April 3. She made a duet with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles back then.
Beside the "California King Bed" video which was directed by Anthony Mandler, Rihanna is also preparing "Man Down" music video which also has Mandler sitting behind the lens. While the former clip was filmed in Cali, the latter video was shot in Jamaica.
