"Free Way" was the second Japanese single taken from the forthcoming debut Eternal Rain, from Korean singer, Rain. The single was released on June 7, 2006 throughout Japan, it peaked at the 15th position on the Oricon Charts. Free Way is often compared to the single, Rock Your Body by American singer Justin Timberlake. Many reasons for this are the music video similarities and the disco/funk melodies featured in the song.
