“Rain” Featured in The Suicide Squad Official Trailer — Watch Here


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.



grandson is the pseudonym of Canadian/American alternative artist Jordan Benjamin. He takes elements of his rock and roll, hip hop, and electronic music roots and combines them to tell stories of reclaiming power over one’s life, confronting social issues facing his generation, and opening up about struggles with addiction and mental health. Since releasing his Modern Tragedy EP series, grandson has toured extensively across North America, Russia, and Europe, accumulated hundreds of millions of streams online, and received co-signs from the biggest names in rock and roll and progressive politics, from Tom Morello to Bernie Sanders. grandson’s debut album, Death Of An Optimist, is a body of work that conflates personal anxieties with political realities. As the protagonist, grandson simultaneously explores the dark underbelly of his unrelenting optimism for change, by creating an antagonist, X. An ambitious project, grandson delivers a subtle A-side/B-side structure totaling twelve tracks, following grandson and X’s dueling world views. Through DOAO, grandson delivers an overwhelming urgency to do something, “After the hardest year of our lives, it’s time to confront the reflection staring back at you, because only in doing so can you know who you truly are," he says. “Showcasing a conflicted soul for intense scrutiny has the benefit of not dictating what is right or wrong. It just shows that we’re in this together.”





Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and rising global superstar Jessie Reyez released her debut studio album Before Love Came To Kill Us via FMLY / Island Records to critical acclaim last spring, earning recognition from The NY Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Variety, and more. The album was an early contender for one of the best albums of the year with over 350M global streams and charting in the Top 5 on Billboard's R&B album chart. In just a couple short years, Jessie has been nominated for a Grammy award for Best Urban Contemporary Album for her sophomore EP Being Human In Public, won a Juno Award for 2020’s R&B/Soul Recording of The Year, and just made history by becoming the first ever Latin Canadian artist to win a Juno for Best Music Video in 2021. Jessie graced the covers of Remezcla, NME, Galore, ILY Mag, and VIBE VIVA which donned her “The People’s Pop Star.” She’s successfully headlined a tour, performed at a plethora of music festivals, supported Billie Eilish on her U.S. tour, and brought her performances to the screen with appearances on the One World: Together At Home special broadcast and Jimmy Kimmel Live (From His House)! Jessie recently became the first person and woman of color to perform both the American and Canadian national anthems for the NBA playoff games atop of the CN Tower in Toronto.





From writer/director James Gunn comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero action adventure The Suicide Squad, featuring a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup. Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

The film stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Michael Rooker, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Joaquín Cosio, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Nathan Fillion, Steve Agee, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Jennifer Holland and Tinashe Kajese, with Sylvester Stallone, and Viola Davis.

Gunn directed from his own screenplay, based on characters from DC. The film was produced by Charles Roven and Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo, Nikolas Korda and Richard Suckle executive producing.

Warner Bros. Pictures Presents An Atlas Entertainment/A Peter Safran Production, A James Gunn Film, The Suicide Squad. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is set for release nationwide in theaters and IMAX on August 6, 2021 and will be available on HBO Max via the Ad-Free plan in UHD, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos on supported devices for 31 days from theatrical release. This film has been rated R for strong violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use, and brief graphic nudity.
