Ben Platt Dances In The “Rain” In His New, Neon-Soaked Video

Ben Platt Switches It Up With 'Rain'
There's more to the breakout star than ballads as the upbeat 'Rain' proves.

Ben Platt’s “Rain” was one of the happiest surprises of August. After carving out a niche as a purveyor of heart-crushing ballads on Sing To Me Instead, the Dear Evan Hansen star decided to switch things up. Produced by Alex Hope, “Rain” finds the multi-hyphenate dabbling in dance-pop to great effect. “Hey! I know we’ve both been afraid but we can’t run from the wind and the thunder,” he belts on the sing-along chorus. “When we’re dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain.”

The video for the stand-alone single arrives today (September 10) and it’s a neon-soaked odyssey. Directed by James Larese, the clip finds our hero on the receiving end of a heavy text. Just as Ben is building up the courage to reply, his phone dies. From there, he indulges in a little choreography and breaks into an empty store to dance on the counter. Oh, and there’s plenty of wet weather. In addition to dropping adorable videos, the 25-year-old also has a Netflix concert special on the way as well as a new TV series called The Politician.
