The colorfully-titled "RA!!i!!NY" is inspired by the city lights and expressive artfulness of Tokyo culture, the main theme being "a dream within a dream within a dream". Sonically, the song verges in the direction of crafty art pop, recalling imagery of rainy days in a bustling city landscape with its ethereal sound. Inundated by tempo changes, textured synths and lilting vocals, "RA!!i!!NY" is a relaxed reflection on drizzly Tokyo nights. A collaboration with Canadian director Patrick Shannon, the music video accompaniment for the song features a more literal interpretation of the aforementioned. Shots of UQiYO wandering Tokyo streets amidst subtle showers set the scene for a coolly meditative take on showcasing the bustling city, lending warmth to the song's underlying story and themes. "RA!!i!!NY" was used as the theme song for a History Channel documentary, distributed throughout over 17 countries and 128 million viewers in Japan and Southeast Asia.
