Rihanna has finally started promotion of California King Bed, the absolute best song off or her platinum selling “Loud” album. The 23 year Princess of Pop gave a stunning performance of the track on last night’s episode of American Idol, bringing the audience to their feet with one of her best performances ever.
I remember thinking when I first heard this song that it had the potential to become Rihanna’s biggest hit and I still believe that. The songs is over the top dramatic and reminds me of the kind of pop/rock songs that groups like Journey did back in the 80s.
Ordinarily I would say that with a great video CKB could be a huge hit, but I think the song stands on it. No video needed. I definitely see another #1 single in Rihanna’s near future.
