The second comeback from today is from Eric Nam, who has been extremely busy since his last comeback with Honestly and Potion back in April of this year. Eric Nam embarked on his highly successful North American tour and released FLOAT, which was part of the official soundtrack for Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. His latest single is titled Miss You.
Given the title of the song and use of the word ‘single’, I thought Eric Nam was going to be a classical and traditional ballad. And that is partly right, as Eric Nam opted for a pop ballad that actually had some energy and drive to it. The instrumental featured guitars and some simple synths which created a nice and soothing atmosphere. It wasn’t overly complicated and remained quite consistent throughout the entire song. I also like Eric’s mixture of vocals in this song, which was interesting. He goes for something a little more hard and harsh for the main body of the chorus but when it came to the title of the song (and the hook), he went with a falsetto. The two go perfectly well with each other. I also like his lyrics, which basically talk about successfully getting over someone. Overall, Miss You works towards his strong abilities and ends up being a nice song to listen to.
The music video seemed to be shot in London, with a lot of the scenery shots being the well known Thames River and London city. And it looked quite nice. Eric roams the streets and had some beautiful shots against the buildings and roads, which I thought was rather nice. There isn’t anything else to really comment on besides how nice the video looks. It was a simple video and whoever put it together made the most of a trip to London.
