The new visual opens the K-pop idol holding a mask sitting in front of a giant, white head made of concrete, before splitting the mask in half to reveal her face. It then jumps into the dance-pop song, as Solar performs alongside a troupe of dancers on various sets, from a beehive to a set of red stairs.
‘Honey’ arrived alongside the MAMAMOO singer’s first-ever mini-album ‘FACE’, which features four additional tracks. Notably, Solar co-wrote and -composed ‘Honey’ herself, and and had also been involved in the production of all songs on the record with the exception of ‘Zinggle Zinggle’.
‘FACE’ marks Solar’s first comeback since she made her solo debut in April 2020 with the single ‘Spit It Out’. She is also the third member of MAMAMOO to have made a solo comeback this year, following Wheein with ‘Whee’ and Moonbyul with ‘6equence’, both of which dropped in January.
Solar had tested positive for COVID-19 a couple of days after she announced her comeback, after she had come into close contact with another COVID-19 patient on February 23.
Shortly after the news of her diagnosis broke, Solar took to her personal Instagram page to reassure fans of her recovery. “I’ll take this [as a sign] to promote in a healthier way before my solo album comes out. I’ll take good care of myself and come back,” she wrote.
In other news, MAMAMOO, completed by Moonbyul, Wheein and Hwasa, are set to perform at KPOP.FLEX to be held at the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Germany in May. The remaining lineup includes groups such as AB6IX, ENHYPEN, (G)I-DLE, IVE, EXO’s Kai and NCT Dream.
