WETAYA SONG OF THE DAY: Luke Combs – When It Rains It Pours
“When It Rains It Pours” is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Luke Combs. It was released in June 2017 as the second single from his debut album This One’s for You (2017). Written by Combs, Ray Fulcher and Jordan Walker, the song is about a man gaining a streak of luck after his girlfriend left him, something that Combs had similarly gone through that acted as the basis for the song’s creation. “When It Rains It Pours” reached number one on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts respectively, giving Combs his second number-one country hit overall. It also charted at number 33 on the Hot 100 chart. The song was certified 3× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and has sold 387,000 units as of March 2018. It achieved similar chart success in Canada, giving Combs his first number-one hit on the Canada Country chart and peaking at number 54 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart. It garnered a 2x Platinum certification from Music Canada. Although it didn’t chart in Australia, it was certified Platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA), denoting sales of 70,000 units in that country.
