MAMAMOO announced on Sept 3 at midnight KST that their compilation album will be titled “I SAY MAMAMOO : THE BEST” and will be released on Sept 15 at 6 p.m. KST. The title of the album is a reference to the group’s official greeting.

MAMAMOO (Korean: 마마무, stylised in all caps) is a South Korean girl group formed by RBW (formerly WA Entertainment) in 2014, composed of four members: Solar, Moonbyul, Wheein, and Hwasa.

The group officially debuted with their single “Mr. Ambiguous” on Jun 18, 2014. Their debut was considered by some critics as one of the best K-pop debuts of 2014. They are recognized for their retro, jazz, R&B concepts and their strong vocal performances.

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.

Prior to their official debut, Mamamoo collaborated with several artists. Their first collaboration titled “Don’t Be Happy” with Bumkey was released on Jan 8, 2014.

A second collaboration with K.Will titled “Peppermint Chocolate” featuring Wheesung was released on Feb 11, 2014.

“Peppermint Chocolate” debuted at number 11 on the Gaon Digital Chart in its first week. On May 30, 2014, Mamamoo released a collaboration single called “HeeHeeHaHeHo” with rap duo Geeks.
