The ‘WAW’ mini-album will be MAMAMOO’s first release since last November’s ‘Travel’ EP, which featured the singles ‘Dingga’ and ‘Aya’. According to South Korea’s Gaon Chart, ’Travel’ has sold over 170,000 copies, becoming their best-selling release ever.
The girl group’s members spent most of 2020 focusing on their solo careers, which kicked off with rapper Moonbyul’s debut EP ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ in February. The group’s leader, Solar, later released her debut solo single ‘Spit It Out’ on April 23.
Member Hwasa, who previously made her debut with the single ‘Twit’ in 2019 dropped her first EP ‘Maria’ alongside a single with the same title in June 2020. ‘Maria’ was met with great success, ranking first in over twenty countries on the iTunes Albums Chart.
Just last month, vocalist Wheein released her first-ever EP ‘Redd’ on April 13. Its lead single ‘Water Color’ peaked at Number 15 Billboard’s World Digital songs chart. An English-language version of the track was later released digitally on April 23.
The quartet also recently held their first-ever global concert, “MAMAMOO Live in Seoul”. The show, which was live-streamed on May 1, featured performances of the group’s hits such as ‘gogobebe’ and ‘HIP’.
