Both of these were released as the final single from their respective albums and became medium-sized top 20 hits in the UK despite flopping in the US.

Going for "California King Bed", it's cute but not her best. I love the way that it builds towards the end though. I do like "Te Amo" and I like that she tried something different for her with it although it feels a little bit dated.

This one was a lil difficult for me. Chose Te Amo in the end as that one is consistently catchy throughout whereas, although the chorus in CKB is pretty powerful, the verses are a bit of a bore.

California King Bed - I used to love it at the time of it's release and it was a really nice summery song for her. Nowadays it's decent but not quite where my tastes lies anymore. Te Amo was always just a decent song and it plods along a bit for the 3 something minutes it's on and I usually forget I'm listening to it until it's over.

Unsurprisingly considering my first activity on the Rihanna forum I think was to try and create a Te Amo appreciation thread before Andrew deleted it laugh.gif , I chose Te Amo, that song is so atmospheric and summery it is a real 10/10 for me. California King Bed is just OK for me although the guitar in it is very good!

California King Bed, by FAR!! This was so easy for me haha. One of my least favourite Rihanna singles vs One of my absolute favourites!

'Te Amo' really grates on me. I find it quite bland. I rated it 5/10.

'California King Bed' is gorgeous and has always been a huge fave of mine. One of her absolute best for me wub.gif I rated it 10/10.

'Te Amo' is a 7/10 at best but it wins as 'California King Bed' is one of Rihanna's worst singles.

I've grown to appreciate 'Te Amo' more over the years.

Te Amo: 8/10
California King Bed: 2/10 (it's crap really)

Has to be "Te Amo" but I like both of these a lot. I know it's not loved on here but "California King Bed" is one of her best ballads ever in my opinion ohmy.gif
