A loping, piano-driven track with a strutting bassline, it's that very rare beast: A rapped love song. "You make me smile, stop doing that," says Hamilton, "I guess I rap for you." What a romantic, eh kids?
NY Raining is taken from the hit US TV series Empire, which can loosely be described as a hip-hop version of The Sopranos: A drug dealer turned music mogul finds his past coming back to haunt him, etc, etc.
Hamilton and Ora will perform this song in the "season finale" (last episode) next week.
