Primary – 3-PAKTORYO2: Music Review

Choi Dong-hoon, popularly known as Primary, is a South Korean hip hop artist and producer. He is currently managed by Amoeba Culture. Primary collaborates with various artists to produce his albums. The first song I ever heard from him is “Manna”, which features Zion. T. My favourite EP from Primary is Lucky You!, which was released in 2015 in collaboration with OHHYUK. Primary has also produced a good number of albums for other Korean artists and groups. He is known for wearing a specially carved cardboard box over his head. img_2069img_2068On the 10th of December, Primary released his new single titled 3-PAKTORY02. It consists of two songs – “When I fall in love” by Meego and SURAN & “Slow down” by Meego and HAON. PAKTORY 02 is the second part of the PRIMARY 3 album.

(Note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to each song.)img_2075

Reaction to Official MV for When I fall in love:

  • Ooooh, this is already a groove. I love the instrumental.
  • Nah, I need to restart this. I need to soak in the beat.
  • The music video is also on point with the visuals.
  • I guess that is Meego singing. I do not know much about him, but his voice is soothing and sexy.
  • SURAN has one of the most uniques voices I have ever heard. Her voice is so captivating.
  • The way her voice scales almost makes her sound like an actual instrument. I do not know how else to explain it. SURAN’s vocal technique is just insanely good.
  • The actors for this music video are stunning.
  • In fact, the entire video was shot so beautifully. PURE ART.
  • Meego and SURAN sound lovely together.
  • I am enjoying every second of this song. I cannot believe I waited so long to check this out.
  • I love how Meego is repeating the chorus in the background as SURAN sings. It creates a charming effect on the ears.
  • Ooooh, and she is doing the same thing when he sings the chorus. Nice.
  • This song is so relaxing and groovy.
  • The lighting and videography style for the music video is so pleasing to watch.
  • Yesss… thank you, SURAN, for those sultry vocal runs at the end. I LOVE.
  • This music video deserves way more views than it has currently. STOP SLEEPING ON TALENT PEOPLE.
  • I had to listen to the song again.
  • It is so rhythmic and also has some elements of jazz.
  • So basically, we see the lady falling asleep a lot throughout the video and later on, the guy also begins to fall asleep. I guess that represents the way they fell in love with each other.
  • Anyways “When I fall in love” by Primary feat. Meego & SURAN is a really soothing and beautiful song, so my rating for it is 10/10.
  • I will be adding this track to my playlist, and I plan to check out other songs from Meego.

Reaction to Official MV for Slow down:

  • The instrumental on this is also a blessing to listen to. SO GOOD.
  • Great choice with the black and white. It is stunning and adds to the melancholic feel of the song.
  • A similar technique with someone repeating the same words of the main singer. I like it.
  • I desperately need English translations to fully appreciate this song.
  • The music video for “Slow down” was also shot in the same place as “When I fall in love”
  • Meego is such a fantastic singer. His sound is so sultry and powerful.
  • Thank you, Primary, for introducing me to another incredible voice.
  • I was not expecting HAON to be a rapper. I need to check all the artists out.
  • He nailed his part. I love that his rap was chill and very rhythmic to flow perfectly with Meego’s singing style.
  • I can hear some slight Mexican influence in the instrumental towards the end.
  • The actor for this music video is so good. He nailed it by showing the right emotions in each scene.
  • And that classic bow from him at the end. WOW.👏👏👏👏
  • I thought I was not going to enjoy this song as much as the first, but they are both solid tracks and equally unique.
  • My rating for “Slow down” by Primary feat. Meego & HAON is 10/10.
  • I will also be adding this track to my playlist.
