It's Rihanna's Sleepy "California King Bed" Video

In the age of the slick, over-produced pop jam, let's all give a round of applause to Rihanna for releasing a good old-fashioned ballad as the fourth single off her Loud album.

The video for the song arrived today, and while it may seem as sleepy as the title (unintentionally) implies, it's still at least a colorful homage to none other than the crimson-weaved singer behind the tribute.

Rihanna is one hot broad, and it's never been more obvious than this dreamy clip. Do we expect it to become her fourth #1 hit in a row from her latest album? Probably not. Even the dance-infused "S&M" needed the Britney Spears remix to achieve a brief appearance at the top of the Hot 100.

Still, if it's not RiRi you're celebrating with "California King Bed," then at least give snaps to the return of the guitar solo in pop songs!

    The instant I heard this on Loud, I saw it for what it was: a blatant pander for a late-single #1. And I totally fell for it!
