CHART SPOTLIGHT. Barbadian singer Rihanna makes a welcome return to the UK singles chart today as “California King Bed” bows at No.36. It follows “Man Down,” which was only sent to US radio earlier this month. Rihanna recently performed a country version together with Jennifer Nettles at an awards show (via Nettles and Rihanna).
The single is also used in a current NIVEA commercial, which also sponsors the singer’s tour. According to the Mo-am blog, Rihanna is only the fourth singer ever to rack up more than 1bn viewers on YouTube.
