The day of lurve saw the release of a beautiful music video for ‘Rain’, a delightful duet between EXO’s Baekhyun and Sistar’s Soyou. This is the latest collaboration in the Starship X collab series.
‘Rain’ is candy for the ears. Soyou’s sweet emotive voice meets with Baekhyun’s innocence to create a moving collaboration. The lyrics tell the story of a couple reminiscing about their failed relationship. The rain is a reminder of the good times and the pain of letting go.The falling rain keeps them up at night resulting in their realisation that they haven’t moved on.This is an emotive track which allows you to get lost in your thoughts.
‘Rain’ is sheer beauty. The video centres around a single girl who dons blue headphones for much of the video. At the start of the video, she appears sad and lost in her thought, perhaps reminiscing over her lost love. As the video progresses she happily plays baseball and dances like nobody’s watching. The video is overflowing with beautiful scenes from the jumping in the rain to fluffy white feathers rising from the ground.
\Rain’ is beautifully shot and edited. Every scene is crisp and flawless. Perhaps the most beautiful scenes involve the actress holding her blue umbrella in the rain. In these scenes the lighting is bright the, rain falls in slow motion and there is a wonderful rainbow filter. Rain has never looked so gorgeous. For the first time in my life, I would consider dropping my umbrella and twirling in the rain to this glorious song.
Overall, this is an emotional song which will keep those with a longing heart company on rainy days.
