New Song: Bruno Mars, ‘It Will Rain’

Landing a song on the lucrative (and instantly chart-topping) “Twilight” soundtrack is kind of like winning the lottery. Or getting asked to the prom as a freshman. Or running into your ex while looking superhot. We’re saying it’s basically the best day of your life.

Enter Bruno Mars. Today we have his contribution to the forthcoming Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part I soundtrack, “It Will Rain,” a dramatic, eerie and moody record that’s juuuust angsty enough to go along with the (INCREDIBLE) melodrama that awaits. In his raspy and gritty voice Bruno sings, “If you ever leave me, baby/Leave some morphine at my door/’Cause it would take a whole lotta medication/To realize what we use to have we don’t have it anymore.” Hm, I wonder if he’s talking about the painful realization that Bella can’t be with Jacob? Or maybe he’s referring to Edward’s torment over the fact that some part of Bella will always love a wolf? YES, I’ve read all the books, and NO, I’m not ashamed!

In a recent interview Bruno described, “The ‘Twilight’ movies for me (are) a love story. But it’s a dark love story. And I think the best way to describe the song is: it’s the darker side of love.” We totally agree, and the only pertinent thing left to say is “Team Jacob 4 LYFE!!”

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part I hits stores Nov. 8. Look out for the Bruno Mars’ “It Will Rain” along with original songs by Christina Perri and Theophilus London.
