Mamamoo made their official debut this week with “Mr. Ambigous” and since it’s easily one of the most fun, most catchy songs of the summer I just had to feature it as my Tune of the Week.
For those of you wondering who is Mamamoo, this rookie group of powerhouse singers consists of Solar, Moon Byul, Wha Sa and Whee In and all four of them participated in the writing and composing of the songs on their debut mini-album, Hello. They’re signed with WA Entertainment and their producer is Kim Do Hoon who, as you may know, has worked with the likes of CNBLUE, IU Mad Clown and Wheesung, to name a few. If these four girls look and sound familiar, it’s probably because even before their official debut, they could be found working with the likes of Geeks, Phantom and K.Will. (Yes, it was Mamamoo who stole the show in K.Will’s “Peppermint Chocolate” MV.)
Their debut song, “Mr. Ambiguous” is a fantastic blues rock inspired tune which immediately brings to mind the retro rock of the 1960’s and every time I listen to it, I find myself wanting to dress up in go-go boots and a mini-dress. With its catchy rhythm, funky bass line, jazzy horns and sassy vocals, “Mr. Ambiguous” is one of those songs you going to want to turn up and dance to all summer long and I say, “Go for it!”
Watching the MV for “Mr. Ambiguous” is like watching a mash-up of a James Bond movie intro and Hairspray which I personally think is fantastic as the ’60’s feel of the song is amplified a hundred times over. Of course what makes this video really stand out, aside from the psychedelic visuals, is the surprising number of stars who make a cameo appearance. CNBLUE’s Jonghyun, K.Will, Wheesung, Bumkey, Baek Ji Young, Rhymer, Jung Joon Young and Don Spike can all be found in Mamamoo’s debut video and personally, I love it!
I have to say, I’m super excited about Mamamoo and I’m really looking forward to seeing where they go, now that they’ve made their official debut. I really hope they’re successful with Hello and are recognized the world-over for their talent, not just as singers but as song writers and composers as well. Of course, now that I’ve shared my thoughts on Mamamoo, I’d love to know what you think so be sure to leave me a comment below!
