The song’s lyrics convey themes of heartbreak and the difficulties of a troubled relationship, suggesting that some issues are best attributed to external factors, such as the rain, rather than personal faults.

“Blame It On the Rain” enjoyed widespread popularity and commercial success, topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. However, controversy later emerged surrounding Milli Vanilli, as it was revealed that they did not sing on their records, leading to their Grammy Award being revoked and a decline in their career.

Despite the controversy, “Blame It On the Rain” remains a memorable part of pop music history from the late ’80s, reflecting the era’s upbeat and catchy musical style.
