Barbadian LOUD girl, Rihanna took to her twitter yesterday to announce that “California King Bed” will be a international release. She will be releasing “Man Down” and they be released the same time.

Rihanna is thinking of going to Jamaica to shoot the video for “Man Down” .

The video for “California King Bed” has already been shot last month as confirmed in the Rolling Stone interview.



On the reggae-tinged track, "Man Down," Rihanna delivers graphic lyrics about shooting a man, but it’s not like she’s armed with a glock and gunning down dudes on the street.The song was produced by Rock City & co-written by Shontelle.

“The song is about breaking a man’s heart,” Rihanna explains.

“It’s a very cleverly written song and what I love about it is that it’s not a lyric you’d normally hear a female singing.”

As for the reggae vibe of the record, Rihanna says the music is an echo of her roots.

“The vibe is Jamaican and West Indian,” she says. “That’s something that’s close to me.”

“I wanted to exude the energy and space I’m in right now that’s what I always try and do with my music. Right now in my life I feel very loud and in charge of my life and I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new album. It has such a variety of sounds but it all makes sense for this album. ‘Man Down‘ is a straight up Jamaican record and I love it, I even do a little chat on it at the end haha.”
