Today, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Jessie Reyez and platinum-selling alt-rocker grandson release a cinematic music video for “Rain,” the exclusive single from James Gunn’s upcoming superhero action-adventure film The Suicide Squad.
The enchanting video emulates the underground, grunge personas of Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Suicide Squad. Electric neon lighting highlights the fierce and sultry Reyez and grandson as they fight their way out of getting captured like true Super-Villains.
Clips from the film — including ones of Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), and more — are expertly integrated into the video to make it seem like Reyez and grandson are a part of the Squad. Jessie harnesses her inner Harley Quinn as the scene explodes into a sea of flowers, and the visual ends, fittingly, with the Squad strutting through a cascade of rain.

"Shooting the music video for ‘Rain’ gave me the opportunity to slaughter a bunch of stuntmen with a battle ax and be a rockstar on the same day,” grandson says. “It was unbelievably fun, and after a year stuck inside, I think this movie is a much-needed opportunity for us to just turn our brains off and watch some shit blow up with our friends. This song captures some of that energy, but still addresses the very real issue of how to take your trauma and learn from it; to alchemize your pain into something profound."
“The music video is a MOVIE,” Reyez adds. “A movie for a movie. It’s only right.”
“Rain” was recorded by Reyez and grandson exclusively for The Suicide Squad and the “cinematic, stadium-ready anthem” (Ones To Watch) is featured in the new trailer for the highly-anticipated movie, which hits theaters on August 6th. The film will also be available on HBO Max via its Ad-Free plan the same day, and for 31 days from release.

grandson and Reyez both have individual songs in the upcoming superhero action-adventure film and took the opportunity to team up on “Rain,” the commanding collaboration about fighting through life’s pains. Reyez’s silky vocals provide an added layer of texture, as grandson and the pop star alternate verses and come together for an epic, belting chorus.
grandson is set to play Lollapalooza on Friday, July 30th, and several other prestigious festivals throughout the rest of this year. See grandson’s full tour routing here.
