Muni Long reveals she wrote Rihanna’s ‘California King Bed’ in 10 minutes

Muni Long has been a staple of the music industry long before her 2023 single “Made For Me” became a viral hit. In a new interview with Complex magazine, the singer-songwriter shared how Rihanna’s 2010 song “California King Bed” came about. Long was in Miami at We The Best studio, working on the song with Jermaine Jackson of The Runners.

At the time, Long was planning to move to Los Angeles, so she was searching the web for furniture for her new home. That’s when Jackson asked her how the song was going. “I didn’t have anything because I’d been tinkering around on the web. I was like, ‘Oh, I’ve got a title’. I said, ‘California King Bed,’ and he said, ‘OK,’ and then he left. So I was like, ‘Oh, now I’ve got to write the whole song.

‘ I wrote the song in about 10 minutes. I was like, let me do this really fast, so I can go back to looking for my furniture online. Originally, they were trying to pitch it to Kelly Clarkson.” A couple of months later, her publisher revealed that the song was for Rihanna herself. “After that track, I worked with her in the studio many times, but that was my first work with RiRi”.

In addition to the song “California King Bed”, which appeared on Rihanna’s 2010 album Loud, Muni Long wrote on RiRi’s 2011 song “Watch n’ Learn” from the album Talk That Talk. The songwriter also appears on song credits for Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It”, Clarkson’s “Love So Soft”, Ariana Grande’s “Imagine”, Selena Gomez and the Scene’s “Who Says” and Pitbull’s “Timber”.
