Throwback Thursday: Ashanti – Rain On Me
E2E music feature writer Lydia pulls out another R&B classic for this week’s Throwback Thursday.
What’s really good guys! I know you’ve been eagerly awaiting the best day of the week, and here it is! Throwback Thursday baby!
This week I’ve decided to slow it down with this absolute banger. Ashanti’s ‘Rain on Me’ is not only a great song, but is a great video as well. Ashanti gives a very convincing performance in this video, not to mention the beaut that plays her love interest. Yep. That’s right. The one and only Larenz Tate stars in the video as her jealous and abusive boyfriend. What a complete change from his role in Love Jones. But there’s something so appealing about his badass-ness in this video. Wooooooo child! He is way, way too fine! Anyway. That was a huge digression.
Ashanti was definitely at her best when this song was released, and it still remains my favourite song by her! So without further ado, here is ‘Rain on Me’ by Ashanti!
