So far Bruno Mars’ latest single ‘It Will Rain’ – the lead single lifted from the ‘Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn’ soundtrack – hasn’t seen the kind of chart action as his three previous singles. Yes, it’s peaked in the top 20, but hasn’t troubled the top ten since its release back in late September.
Perhaps the official video will help.
Given it’s part of a soundtrack, naturally, there are little snippets of the movie flashed up throughout the clip, but they’re projected onto a wall in this case, as a developing story unfolds around them.
Bruno and his girl are having some problems – and he knows that if she goes, surely it will rain (good title for a song). There are some tender moments, some not so tender moments and it all pans out against the soundtrack of the new tune.
It’s not quite as instantly likeable as megahits ‘Grenade’ and ‘Just The Way You Are’ (both of which are five times platinum in Australia), but it’s likeable.
