Loco, Hwasa to collaborate on upcoming EP 'Somebody!'
Rapper Loco and singer Hwasa, also a member of girl group Mamamoo, are collaborating again, this time on the EP “Somebody!” due to be released July 25.
AOMG and RBW, the artists’ respective agencies, posted teasers to their social media channels this week.
The pair last worked together on the song “Don’t” in 2018, which topped the monthly charts on music streaming site Melon and music sales tracker Gaon for May 2018.
While “Don’t” was a song with lyrics suggesting tension between two potential lovers, “Somebody!” appears to be a fun summer song, with the teaser video showing bright, vivid colors.
“Somebody!” will have two tracks: the titular track and “Lemon.”
Loco is a rapper signed under the hip-hop label AOMG. He won the first season of Mnet’s commercially successful rap competition show “Show Me the Money” (2012). His hit songs include “Hold Me Tight” (2014), “Say Yes” (2016) and “It Takes Time” (2018).
Hwasa debuted as a member of Mamamoo in 2014 along with three other members: Solar, Moonbyul and Wheein. The girl group is known for its steady flow of hits such as "Um Oh Ah Yeh" (2015), "You're the best" (2016), "Décalcomanie" (2016), "Egotistic" (2018) and "Hip" (2019).
Hwasa is also successful as a solo artist, with songs like “Twit” (2019) and “Maria” (2020).
