New Music: Rihanna – ‘California King Bed’ + ‘Man Down’

Rihanna keeps the hits coming with “California King Bed” and “Man Down,” two more gems on her fifth album Loud (Nov. 16). The red-headed songstress puts her vocal skills to the test on the rock-tinged ballad “Bed,” which her boyfriend Matt Kemp calls one of his favorite songs off the project.

Meanwhile, RiRi picks up the pace on the dark “Man Down,” a collaboration with fellow Bajan Shontelle where she channels the island flavor of her native Barbados. “When I was writing my part, we were in the studio together,” the “Impossible” singer told Rap-Up.com of the rum-pum-pum track. “She really works hard. We were at one of her concerts and she literally got straight off the stage, walked right onto the studio bus, and went straight to work.”
