This Week's Youtube: Rain Over Me - Pitbull (feat. Marc Anthony)

"Rain Over Me" is the first English song from Marc Anthony since 2002. However, his voice is silky smooth on the track, which definitely pumps up the song. Also, Pitbull is looking to stay at the top of the charts after he spent his 1st week in the top spot on Billboard last month. Everything about this song screams hit. However, does the video?

The video itself is pretty simple. The guys go the desert, looking for the sky to "rain over them". Of course, as always, Pitbull's surrounded by hot chicks; there'd be more, but this is the desert, remember! The best part of the otherwise dull video lies in Marc's picture being laid in the background while rain falls from the sky. Although this would be next to nothing in an A-level video, it adds in a needed spark to "Rain Over Me".

The song's very good, however, and I'd give it a 4 out of 5 if it were a Song of the Day. Does anyone else find it ironic that Pitbull could get a hit with "Rain Over Me" just months after he had a hit with Jennifer Lopez in "On the Floor"? He seems like the 3rd wheel in a horrible music relationship!
