K-pop quartet MAMAMOO have returned with their new mini-album ‘MIC On’ and its lead single ‘ILLELA’.
On October 11 at 6PM KST, MAMAMOO unveiled the music video for ‘ILLELLA’, their latest single from their brand-new mini-album ‘Mic ON’. In the new visual, the girl group dress in festival-inspired outfits as they sing and dance to the reggae-inspired track.
“One Two Three / Deep into the night / The night is long, just the two of us / It’s midnight, what’s the problem?,” they sing in the single’s sultry chorus.
In addition to ‘ILLELLA’, the new record contains two B-sides, titled ‘1,2,3 Eoi!’ and ‘L.I.E.C’.
‘Mic ON’ marks MAMAMOO’s first release as a full group in over a year, their last music together being September 2021’s compilation album ‘I Say MAMAMOO: The Best’. That record had only included two new tracks, its lead single ’mumumumuch’ and the song ‘Happier Than Ever’.
The group’s four members – Solar, Moonbyul, Wheein and Hwasa – have spent the past year focusing on their solo endeavours. Members Solar and Moonbyul also teamed up last month to form the act’s first-ever subunit MAMAMOO+, and released the single ‘Better’ featuring rapper BIG Naughty.
In NME’s interview with leader and vocalist Solar about her debut mini-album ‘容: Face’, the idol shared that she struggled to process the group’s popularity. “We were so busy just trying to live and focused on working hard that back then, I wasn’t able to process the feelings,” she said.
“Now, thinking back on it all, I’m so grateful for all those times and I’m thankful for everything now.”
