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:
