[New Release] MAMA MOOMAMA MOO
Label: CJ E&M
Genre: R&B, dance, soul
Debuting in 2014 with the digital single “Don’t Be Happy,” the girl group Mamamoo has appealed to K-pop fans with their distinctive vocal style and impressive performances. The combination of powerful voices and attitude on stage despite the group’s short history is why their new album “Melting” has been worth waiting for. The album comes a little less than two years after the group’s debut.
“You’re the Best” is the title song, with a funky rhythm about a girl who falls in love with a boy at first sight. The song is ranking high on MelOn, Korea’s biggest local music streaming service. “Friday Night” is a love song sweet enough to melt the minds of K-pop fans and features singer Junggigo. “Words Don’t Come Easy” has been gaining attention because it emphasizes Mamamoo’s distinctive sound set to a unique bossa nova melody.
The album’s 12 tracks are worth listening to, as each showcases an impressive emotional range and willingness to experiment with different styles.
