This week saw the release of Eric Nam‘s comeback album ‘Honestly‘, along with the title track of the same name. As a bonus, he also pre-released the music video for another album track ‘Potion‘.
The title track ‘Honestly‘ was co-written by Eric and Jang Yijeong who was formerly with the group HISTORY.
The song put Eric‘s vocals over the top of an acoustic guitar and synth backing, it gives the track a western pop feel while bringing in the much-favoured tropical house feel. The track opens with a subdued version of the chorus before building into a slow-burn verse that features a repeated guitar riff that brings life and movement to the song before incorporating percussion to the mix.
Eric‘s vocal is retrained and emotional which only serves to highlight the heartfelt feelings of the song. It’s a true showcase of his ability to adapt his vocal style to a range of styles and genres.
In the video, we got lots of shots of the beautiful and romantic scenery of San Miguel Allende in Mexico where the clip was filmed. There doesn’t seem to be a firm storyline to the clip, however, there are plenty of shots of Eric looking handsome while dancing through the streets of the town. It’s a clip full of colour and fun and life and sits perfectly with the feelings of the songs.

The song ‘Potion‘ was a pre-release track earlier this week from Eric Nam‘s album ‘Honestly‘.
‘Potion‘ features rapper Woodie Gochild and was co-written by Epik High‘s Tablo.
This track is best described as an upbeat techno-pop track that has a distinctive Spanish flair. The melody is addictive and is based on an acoustic backing track that is defined by the electronic lifts that drop straight into the chorus.
‘Potion‘ is definitely a party song that features lyrics that tell everyone to ‘be young and wild’ and ‘pour up the potion’.
