[Review] Retro Future – Triple H

Triple H, consisting of Hyuna, Hui and E’Dawn, have finally returned after 1 year and 3 months! Their latest sexy comeback track is titled as Retro Future and is featured on the trio’s second mini-album, REtro Futurism. They previously made their debut last year in May with 365 Fresh. In other news related to the members, Hyuna has confirmed that she will be making a comeback right after these promotions are wrapped up, while Pentagon (where you find Hui and E’Dawn) has been enjoying a lot of popularity over their latest song, Shine.

It is no surprise that Retro Future takes on a retro sound. The fact that they went with ‘retro-futurism’ as the basis of the song makes it very unique and individualistic. The song is definitely quite catchy and enjoyable, with its simple yet very impactful repetitional hook of the title. I just can’t get it out of my head. I loved the opening lines of the song, which definitely sets the tone for the rest of the song. I really liked E’Dawn’s rap in the second verses and Hui’s vocals throughout the song. But my most favourite part is Hyuna’s vocal line halfway through E’Dawn’s second verse rap. It leaves me shaking every single time I listen to it. The only section which I am thinking is a little ambigious is the ‘let’s be funky’ at the very end, which does sound like the members are cursing. But other than that, it is one amazing song.

The song seems like a continuation of 365 Fresh. Likewise, the music video seems to be the three members having a little fun after the evens of the 365 Fresh video (ignoring the fact that they fall off a building). The plotline is rather simple. The lady has contacted the trio to help ‘spice up’ her relationship with her partner and they come running. And by the end of thr video, they complete the mission in which they set up for. There is a werid side to the video about half way through, when Hui is filmed wiping his butt after going to the toilet. It all makes for an interesting video and it works with the vibes set up by the earlier video.

The performance looks amazing. A little disappointed that they slowed down the choreography for the chorus, as the verses/ending was very intense and I really liked that feel from it. It is definitely a more exciting performance that 365 Fresh, which definitely makes want to go back for more.

Song – 9.5/10
Music Video – 9/10
Performance – 9/10
Overall Rating – 9.3/10
