      Artist: SWV Video: “Rain” Album: Release Some Tension Label: RCA Records Director: Darren Grant

      “Rain” is the final single and music video from SWV’s third album called “Release Some Tension”, following “Can We” and “Someone”. Released in the Spring of 1998, Darren Grant directs this time around, taking a more low-key and

        can’t believe I’m going to say this stupid woman’s name) Rihanna. Overall though, “Rain” is nowhere near as memorable as “Can We” or “Someone” but it is a rather harmless and gentle effort from the three sisters with voices. Mind you, this was the last single and music video that the ladies ever put out.
