Mamamoo (Korean마마무), most often stylized as MAMAMOO,[2] is a South Korean girl group formed by RBW (formerly WA Entertainment) in 2014. The group officially debuted with their single "Mr. Ambiguous" on June 18, 2014.[3] Their debut was considered by some critics as one of the best K-pop debuts of 2014.[4][5] They are recognized for their retro, jazz, R&B concepts and their strong vocal performances.[6][7]

Name[edit]

The group name "Mamamoo" is symbolic of the first time a baby babbles. In addition, it has the meaning of approaching instinctively and primitively like a baby.[8]

Career[edit]

2014–2015: Formation, debut with Hello and rising popularity[edit]

Prior to their official debut, Mamamoo collaborated with several artists. Their first collaboration titled "Don't Be Happy" with Bumkey was released on January 8, 2014.[9] A second collaboration with K.Will titled "Peppermint Chocolate" featuring Wheesung was released on February 11, 2014.[10][11] "Peppermint Chocolate" debuted at number 11 on the Gaon Digital Chart in its first week.[12][13] On May 30, 2014, Mamamoo released a collaboration single called "HeeHeeHaHeHo" with rap duo Geeks.[14]

The group made their official debut on June 18, 2014 with lead single "Mr. Ambiguous" from their first extended play (EP) Hello. The music video for "Mr. Ambiguous" contained cameo appearances from many well-known K-pop industry figures such as CNBLUE's Jonghyun, Baek Ji-young, Wheesung, Jung Joon-young, Bumkey, K.Will, and Rhymer of Brand New Music.[15] The album contained three previously released collaborations and four new songs.[15] The group made their first live appearance on the June 19 episode of M Countdown.[16] In July 2014, Mamamoo released their first original soundtrack contribution titled "Love Lane" for the Korean drama Marriage, Not Dating.[17]

On November 21, 2014, Mamamoo released their second EP Piano Man with the title track of the same name.[18] The title song peaked at 41 on Gaon's Digital chart.[19] By the end of 2014, Mamamoo ranked tenth highest among idol girl groups for digital sales, 19th in album sales, and 11th in overall sales according to Gaon's year-end rankings.[20] On January 10, 2015, Mamamoo performed a rendition of Joo Hyun-mi's "Wait a Minute" at the singing show Immortal Songs 2, reaching the final round before losing to Kim Kyung-ho.[21]

On April 2, 2015, Mamamoo released "Ahh Oop!", the first single of their third EP titled Pink Funky.[22] "Ahh Oop!" marks the group's second collaboration with label mate Esna, after she was featured in "Gentleman" on their second EP Piano Man. On June 13, 2015, the group traveled to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to perform at an event sponsored by the South Korean Embassy with Crayon Pop and K-Much. The event was a commemorative concert held in honor of the 25th anniversary of diplomatic ties between South Korea and Mongolia.[23]

On June 19, 2015, Mamamoo released their third EP Pink Funky and lead single "Um Oh Ah Yeh". The song was a commercial success, peaking at number three on the Gaon Chart, becoming their first top-three single.[24] On August 23, 2015, after promotions concluded, Mamamoo held their first fan meeting, entitled "1st Moo Party", for a total of 1,200 fans at the Olympic Park in Seoul. Tickets for the fan meeting sold out within one minute, so the group added an additional meeting for 1,200 more fans the same night.[25][26] They also held another "Moo Party" in Los Angeles, which took place on October 4, 2015.[citation needed] Mamamoo also collaborated and performed with label mate Basick on the Korean rap survival show Show Me the Money.[27]

On August 29, 2015, Mamamoo returned to Immortal Song 2 with a rendition of Jo Young-nam's "Delilah".[28] On October 31, 2015, Mamamoo returned to the Immortal Song 2, singing a rendition of Korean trot singer Bae Ho's song "Backwood's Mountain" (두메산골). Their performance earned their first overall win on Immortal Song with 404 points.[29]

We will be taking time to understand more about our international fans to ensure this never happens again."[49][50]

Mamamoo released their fifth EP Purple with the title track "Yes I Am" on June 22, 2017.[51] The title track quickly climbed to the number one spot on the Melon real-time chart.[52] After one day, Mamamoo set the record for the highest number of unique listeners in 24-hours with "Yes I Am" on Melon for a girl group.[53] On June 27, 2017, they received their first music show win on The Show, followed by wins on Show Champion, M Countdown, and Show! Music Core.[54][55] They also placed first in Billboard's World Album Charts.[56]

On January 4, 2018, Mamamoo released a pre-release single called "Paint Me" to act as a prelude to their upcoming project series "Four Seasons, Four Colors."[57] The goal of the series is to showcase four albums, each combining one color and a matching member's characteristic for each season.[58] The group has stated that they wish to show their depth as artists and present a more matured style with this project.[59]

In August 2019, Mamamoo was announced to be joining Mnet reality-competition show Queendom as one of six teams. The show is a "comeback battle" between six trending girl group acts in order to "determine the real number one" when all six release their singles at the same time.[102] Queendom premiered on August 26 and ran for ten total episodes, ending on October 31.[103] During the show's finale, the group was crowned the winner of Queendom, thus earning the prize of a full-length comeback show to be broadcast on Mnet.[104][105][106] As part of the show, Mamamoo released various songs, including a cover of AOA's 2016 hit "Good Luck"[107] and their original finale song "Destiny."[108]

The Japanese edition of the album was released on March 11[115] and peaked at number 27 on the Oricon Albums Chart with 2,500 copies sold.[116]

2020–present: Focus on members' solo activities, Travel, and virtual concerts[edit]

In January 2020, an OSEN interview with Kim Do-hoon, the CEO and executive producer of Mamamoo's record label RBW, was published, in which Kim detailed the trajectory of Mamamoo's career and activities in 2020. He reflected on the successes of Mamamoo's participation on Queendom and their second Korean studio album Reality in Black and confirmed that the members would begin to focus on solo projects, with each member hoping to showcase their individualities that they had previously shown in the "Four Seasons, Four Colors" project series.[117][118] Moonbyul became the first member to release a solo project in 2020, releasing her debut EP Dark Side of the Moon on February 14.[119] On April 23, Solar released her debut single "Spit It Out" and its accompanying single album.[120] Following the single's debut at number 12 (and subsequent peak at number six), Mamamoo became the second Korean group in which every member had a solo song chart on the Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart.[121]
