Got7 Hard Carry

Got7 did a bit of a 180 with “Hard Carry” when compared to previous music videos.  While they’ve had some serious videos, this one really brings it with an in your face song, dance, and overall feel.

Hard Carry supposedly stands for the one person who brings the losing team to victory, the person who takes the most important role.  It’s also used with a different meaning in MOBAs.

Costume and Set

The costumes for this video are pretty basic overall.  Most of the guys just had a shirt, jacket, and torn jeans of some sort.  Despite the fact that it was so basic, it worked well for the video.

As they danced, it didn’t take away from the movements, instead the jackets emphasized them as they fanned out behind them.  I’ll also be the first to admit that I really have a thing for torn jeans, so anytime I see those in a video is just an easy A in my book.

The set was pretty damn cool, with a broken plane in the background that they shot both in and out of.  I loved that they had the set look like the plane had just crashed, with dust floating around and fire spread across the ground.  The inside of the plane was well done as well, with little things that stood out, like the masks hanging down.

I wasn’t quite sure how to feel about all the floating trees during the vocal portions.  They felt really out of place when compared to the rest of the video, but they were a cool touch and I loved how they had the birdcage in the middle of it all.

The water tank was a bit confusing to me.  The firs time I saw it, all I could think of was a magic show, but there was no magic here, just pure music video goodness.

Song

“Hard Carry” is great dance track, with a slight EDM feel and total club banging atmosphere.  Each rapper ha their own style of rapping, which stands out in their sections of the song.  I loved hearing their unique way of doing them and found myself attempting to figure out who was who based on how they were rapping.   The vocals were great, though they felt more like they were spoken than sung.

Probably the best portion of this song is the chorus, it’ll stick with you even hours after you listen to the song.

Throughout the song they boys brag about their capabilities, which is a confidence that is much deserved.  The entire song screams cockiness and confidence and definitely leaves little to be desired.

Lyrics

Hard carry, hard carry

Welcome to my world, let’s do this
Call me an issue maker, I’m so ill
Wherever I go, the mood go higher
It’s so loud outside the place, crazy energy
How I’m doing? Everybody knows it
But I’m not full yet, hungry
Whatever it is, I won’t lose spirit
In other words, I have a fighting spirit

Once I appear, the game is over
I get everything I want
I know how to flow with the water
Again today, I do what I have to, hard carry
Let’s fly again, fly again, fly again
I got this right (I got this right)
Don’t worry about tomorrow (Don’t worry)
Today, I’ll hard carry only for you

Hard carry
Let it flow, let it flow now
Shake you up, put you up and down, hard carry
Let it flow, let it flow now
Shake you up, put you up and down, hard carry

I’ve never lost a game before
I always see the end, overflowing with passion
We have slight foam but we don’t lose when
it comes to playing – A skilled gambler
The password and ID to this atmosphere, save it
A lot of people call me out again today
After the performance is over, I’m on the plane again
No other comfortable pillow than a cloud

Once I appear, the game is over
I get everything I want
I know how to flow with the water
Again today, I do what I have to, hard carry
Let’s fly again, fly again, fly again
I got this right (I got this right)
Don’t worry about tomorrow (Don’t worry)
Today, I’ll hard carry only for you

Hard carry
Let it flow, let it flow now
Shake you up, put you up and down, hard carry
Let it flow, let it flow now
Shake you up, put you up and down, hard carry

If you wanna get this, do as you did
Without a care, just let it be
I wanna be light in the darkness
I just wanna blow your mind
I just wanna show my mind

Hard carry
Hard carry

Hard carry Hard carry
Hard carry Hard carry
Hard carry Hard carry
Hard carry Hard carry
