[Exclusive Interview Pt. II] MAMAMOO Talks Music, Collaborations and More
The following is an exclusive 3-part Q&A with MAMAMOO - Read Part I here
Mwave: You guys have already collaborated a lot of with different singers, like K.Will and Bumkey - is there anyone else you’d like to work with?
Wha Sa: Mamamoo has been promoted a lot as a group that doesn’t get stuck or boxed in, so hopefully, making that a reality, instead of just collaborating with a singer , I would really want to collaborate with Ryu Seung Ryong sunbaenim (actor). So it would be a song… but since Ryu Seung Ryong sunbaenim is such a interesting character, and his personality is so awesome. And when you watch him in movies, and he sings little parts, his voice is actually really gentle. So I really think that something, something good, would come out if we collaborating with Ryu Seung Ryong sunbaenim. So I really want to do something with him.
Moon Byul: Crush sunbaenim! His music is really diverse, and his voice is really sweet. So I think we’d match well together. And with the Urban R&B style, we had ‘Don’t Be Happy’ in that style, so I think it’d be a collaboration
Moon Byul: Yea, from what I heard...I think..we’re the same.. age. I heard that he’s ‘92
Mwave: Isn’t Bumkey close to Crush? Couldn’t he help make something happen?
Moon Byul: Yes so… hehe…
Mwave: Do you have any particular genres you want to try out in the future?
Whee In: We don’t want to be boxed in, and we really want to try all different genres. So with our mini-album, all seven songs are of different genres. Jazz, hip-hop, funky, we want to try all these different genres.
All: We all have really different tastes…
Solar: I really like hip-hop. Even though the way I sing isn’t hip-hop style at all, I really enjoy listening to hip-hop.
Whee In: I really, really love hip-hop
Moon Byul: For me, I really like R&B pop. I feel like it’s music that fits any mood, any weather.
Whee In: I really like R&B and urban too. And I really want to do that kind of music, so that’s what I listen to normally.
Wha Sa: I also like to listen to R&B and hip-hop, so generally I really like black music. But when I’m listening to music at dawn by myself, just for healing purposes...I like old pop.
Mwave: You said it was all different, but the styles you like all sound pretty similar!
Wha Sa: Yea, but when you look at the exact songs that we all like to listen to, it’s different.
Moon Byul: Yea, it’s interesting, the songs and music we actually listen to are somewhat different
