The talented K-pop girl band Mamamoo kept the attention of the Japanese Islands.
According to their agency, management RBW, the quartet female band released their Japanese debut singles last week and made concert tours in the major Japanese cities of Osaka, Tokyo, Nagoya and more.
The Japanese version of, “Decalcomanie,” and the new release, “You Don’t Know Me,” were exhibited on stage and their fans went wild. Before their concert tours, a Japanese broadcasting channel aired this power K-pop girl group’s music video for, “Decalcomanie,” and on the eve of the debut single release, Mamamoo staged a performance at Tower Records Shibuya. Mamamoo seemed to be on a roll during their Japanese debut.
The success of Mamamoo was not built in a day. The group officially debuted on June 19th, 2014 with the song, “Mr. Ambiguous,” and was known for being one of the best debuts of 2014. This four-member girl group's impact on the K-pop scene was bolstered with the hit single, “Um Oh Ah Yeh,” in 2015. On January 26, 2016, Mamamoo pre-released a digital single, an R&B ballad called, “I Miss You,” announcing their comeback for their first full album, “Melting,” where all members worked on the album.
Their second solo concert of Moosical Curtain Call was thrown on stage on January 19th, 2017 and the tickets for the show were sold out in less than a minute after opening to the public. This wonder was not the first time. The same occasion happened at their previous concert.
Most recently, Mamamoo came back with their brand new single, “Egotistic.” A snapping beat and reggaeton-esque percussion are followed by scratch hums and crisp strings in the lead-up to the chorus as the four girls deliver soulful verses with sultry eyes. Dramatic throughout, “Egoistic” reflects the album’s red-inspired theme of anger and passion, drawing on the Latin pop trend that is increasingly showing up in K-pop. All in all, Mamamoo has become one of the most prominent girl bands in South Korea, known for their bright, funky songs as well as their expressive vocals.
