7 Rain Collaborations That Are Absolute Jams
Rain has had a long and successful career for over two decades. His contributions to the music (and film) industry have made him a legacy that junior idols look up to. It’s fair to say that Rain is here to stay.
Recently, the veteran artist has been fervently collaborating with other artists, and the outcome is undoubtedly stellar. Here are seven Rain collaborations that are absolute jams. Enjoy the show!
1. “GANG” Remix with Sik-K, pH-1, Jay Park, HAON
When you first start watching the video, you’d think this is nothing but a remix of Rain’s “GANG” until you spot the rain man himself. This energetic rendition by the H1GHR MUSIC labelmates in the presence of Rain is all the energy boost you need to start your day!
2. “Summer Hate” with Zico
Zico and Rain are not fans of the heat wave that happens during summer, and they expressed it in the most fun way possible. With the visuals complementing the witty lyrics, this summer jam is bound to melt your hearts!
3. “Switch to me” with Park Jin Young
Nothing spells fun like a comedy featuring Rain and Park Jin Young, who once were student and mentor, respectively. Now, they are rivals in “Switch to me,” and they go by one principle: survival of the coolest. The wits of the lyrics and the scheming of the MV are no match to their ultimate rival. Watch the clip to find out their identity!
4. “Come over” featuring Keita, TAG, and WON of Ciipher
Not only does Rain bestow his mentorship to the idols under his company, but he also involves them in his music. “Come over” tells an intense love story, with Rain’s signature naturally all over it. Ciipher’s Keita, TAG, and WON feature in this seductive track with their CEO.
5. “WHY DON’T WE” with Chungha
When two grand performers come together, it is show time: Swag meets talent and the rest is history! This dynamic duet basically sets this electric hit on fire, and if anything, their dance routine is absolutely blazing.
6. “MAGNETIC” with Jackson Wang
This groovy beat unites two of the hottest male soloists in the music industry, and we’re here to bear witness. Oozing confidence and sex appeal, GOT7’s Jackson and Rain send us into a spiral through a set of flirty lyrics that are just as magnetic as their visuals.
7. “Beach Again” with SSAK3
This collaborative work is actually part of a seasonal project group that brought together Rain, Lee Hyori, and Yoo Jae Suk under the new monikers B-Ryong, Linda G, and Yoo Dragon, respectively. The trio revived good ol’ K-pop through this colorful retro concept that will get you on your feet the moment the beat drops.
