Ben Platt Is Going to Dance, 'Rain' or Shine, in New Video: Watch

Zoey Grossman for Netflix
Ben Platt

We all know Ben Platt is an excellent singer and a gifted actor, but in his latest video, the rising star is proving he's a true triple threat with some intense dance moves.

On Tuesday (Sept. 10), Platt dropped a video for "Rain," his uplifting anthem dedicated to fighting past feelings of heartbreak and choosing love. The gorgeous new video, directed by James Larese, sees a downtrodden Platt pull into an abandoned gas station as a text message comes across his phone, reading, "I'm all in ... u?"

As Platt walks away from his car, he slowly starts to gain confidence, as displayed through his bolder dance moves. He moves his passionate dance inside the now neon-lit gas station, before ultimately stepping back outside and finishing his song in the pouring rain. "We can't run from the wind and the thunder/ When we're dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain," he sings.

Platt's new video comes just a day after it was announced that his upcoming sold-out performance at New York City's Radio City Music Hall will be filmed and transformed into a Netflix concert special. While the special has yet to be given an air date, you can still catch Platt on Netflix this month: His new Ryan Murphy-helmed television show The Politician debuts Sept. 27.
