New Music: Action Bronson, Mark Ronson, & Dan Auerbach - 'Standing in the Rain'
The Suicide Squad soundtrack delivers another banger.
Following yesterday’s “World Record” premiere of Kehlani’s “Gangsta,” Beats 1 debuts Action Bronson, Mark Ronson, and Dan Auerbach’s collaboration “Standing in the Rain.”
For his part, Bronson raps about “pillow fights with Dominican mothers” and how cash impacts the world.
“The money eases everybody’s mind,” he raps. “Put kids through school, new tits on wives / New tits for the mistress/ New shit for everybody, it’s Christmas.”
Meanwhile, Ronson provides the beat and The Black Keys’ Auerbach handles the hook, which borrows from Oran “Juice” Jones’ ’80s hit “The Rain.”
“I love the way Bronson sounds when he sings,” explained Ronson. “He’s always singing little Billie Joel melodies or old songs from the ’80s. He was singing [‘The Rain’] in the studio one time. I was like, ‘We should do something with that.'”
The star-studded Suicide Squad soundtrack is set to drop Friday when the film hits theaters. It will feature “Sucker for Pain” by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, X Ambassadors, and Imagine Dragons, as well as “Purple Lamborghini” by Rick Ross and Skrillex.
