On 22 August 2021, singer-songwriter Seori released her new single, ‘Dive with you’, featuring DAY6’s Jae (eaJ). The soloist has risen to popularity in the Korean R&B genre for her angelic vocals and has collaborated with other artists, such as TXT for ‘0X1=LOVESONG’.
‘Dive with you’ was written and composed by Seori, Graphix, and Jae. The duo have collaborated before, with Keshi, for ‘It just is’. This marks their 2nd single together.
About ‘Dive with you (feat. eaJ)’
As expected of the duo, their vocals harmonise beautifully to illustrate the romance of the lyrics. The pure emotion of longing and want behind their voices are perfect and accompany the smooth, chill beat of the song. The lyrics talk about wanting to open up to your lover and live the rest of your life with them, calling it a “paradise” and assuring them that they can do the same. Relationships are, after all, a two way street and while it feels rare, ‘Dive with you’ paints a picture of people who have found a home for each other. Maybe not physically but together in your hearts.

About the music videos
There are 3 different videos for the song: 2 lyric videos and one storyboard version. The storyboard version shows the complete story vision for lyric video 1 and is fantastically illustrated by Deisa, a Filipino freelance designer and illustrator. She seemed to have referenced DAY6 for the video and blended elements of their latest full group comeback, ‘You make Me’, into it.
There will be a live action version coming out soon in September so tune in! While you’re at it, learn more about her work and how she got so far here: Her interview with Bandwagon.
Lyric video 2 includes photographs of the couples from Seori’s previous single, ‘Lovers in the night’. I personally loved this choice as it includes LGBTQ+ couples too and it’s refreshing to see us represented in a soothing romance rather than be given an angsty ending.
Overall, Seori has come a long way, deserves every bit of her success and Hallyure cannot wait to see more of her.
