Dingo Music unveiled both the new single and the accompanying live performance video of ‘Sunny Shower’ on November 9 at 6pm KST. The new duet was both co-written and co-composed by Colde himself, alongside South Korean soloist Milena.
In the live performance video, Wheein is seen sitting on a bench, against a set that resembles a snowy winter night, performing her verses. It later cuts to Colde performing his own on the same set, however, he is styled to resemble summer. Wheein later joins Colde on the final chorus.
‘Photosynthesis’ marks Wheein’s second collaboration for the year. Prior to this, she teamed up with VIXX’s Ravi to release ‘Bye’. That song arrived ahead of the rapper’s mandatory military enlistment, which commenced earlier this week.
Wheein also released her second solo mini-album ‘Whee’ in January. That record, led by title track ‘Make Me Happy’, marked her first solo project after signing with new label THE L1VE in August 2021.
Earlier this month, Wheein also reunited with her MAMAMOO bandmates for the release of ‘Mic ON’, the quartet’s first release as a full group in over a year. That record included title track ‘ILLELLA’ and B-sides ‘1,2,3 Eoi!’ and ‘L.I.E.C’.
In a four-star review of the record, NME’s Angela Patricia Suacillo described the group’s latest comeback as a “return to form” for the quintet: “It flaunts the confident sonic identity that endeared them to many without downplaying the lighter, groovier sound they adapted to.”
