Album Introduction

MAMAMOO brilliantly marks 7 years with the release of [I SAY MAMAMOO : THE BEST]!

In June, the eleventh mini-album [WAW] raised the curtain on the ‘Where Are We (WAW)’ project. This project narrated MAMAMOO’s journey over the past seven years, their current position, and the path ahead. It deeply resonated with many, and the group successfully completed their first online concert ‘WAW’ under the ‘NON-STOP’ concept of never being apart from their fans.

Now, with [I SAY MAMAMOO : THE BEST], a best album that encapsulates ‘MAMAMOO’ as introduced to the public in 2014, they have reached the pinnacle of the ‘WAW’ project.

[I SAY MAMAMOO : THE BEST], enriched with MAMAMOO’s identity, offers a refreshing experience by reimagining their hit songs with more vibrant arrangements. It also includes collaborations with other artists, newly recorded in a four-member version, filling the album with 23 tracks voiced by MAMAMOO. It’s like witnessing a genre-defining performance by ‘MAMAMOO’ itself.

Especially noteworthy are the new songs premiered at the online concert ‘WAW’. These include ‘mumumumuch’, a catchy tune with witty lyrics and a melody that you can’t help but hum along to, and ‘Happier than Ever’, a song about longing for MAMAMOO’s unblemished past and wishing for future well-being.

The newly arranged and recorded 23 tracks, including the grand orchestral sound of ‘Paint Me (Orchestra ver.)’, the addictive remix of ‘HIP (Remix ver.)’, ‘Peppermint Chocolate (MMM ver.)’ with Moonbyul’s fresh rap, and the matured voices of MAMAMOO in ‘Mr. Ambiguous 2021’, are enough to encapsulate seven years of MAMAMOO.

It’s time to refocus on MAMAMOO, standing at a new starting point.

Track 1. mumumumuch

A dance-pop genre with a rhythmic bass line and a lively sound. It purely expresses the love as vast as the sky, land, and sea, discovering new sparkling aspects in oneself with that love. This refreshing MAMAMOO-like song, expressing their immense love for fans, is included in the best album as a special gift.

Track 2. Happier than Ever

The times we spent together were finite and not always blissful. However, the small wishes we shared, the moments our eyes met, and the precious memories of those nights were certainly happy ones. This autobiographical song is a message of reluctant goodbye filled with these memories.
