  About Mamamoo 마마무  

Mamamoo 마마무 is a girl group formed by Rainbow Bridge World (formerly WA Entertainment) in 2014. The group officially debuted on June 18, 2014, with the song "Mr. Ambiguous." The group consists of Solar, Moonbyul, Wheein, and Hwasa.  They are recognized for their retro, jazz, and R&B concepts and strong vocal performances

Korean producer Kim Dohoon discovered and produced the group.  The name "Mamamoo" incorporates the word "Mama," one of the first sounds people make after birth.  The intention is to show the group's will to create friendly and intimate music for the whole world.

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. A collaboration with K.Will titled "Peppermint Chocolate" featuring Wheesung was released on February 11, 2014. "Peppermint Chocolate" ranked 11th on the Gaon Digital Chart in its first week. On May 30, Mamamoo released a third collaboration with rap duo Geeks called "Hi Hi Ha He Ho."

After debuting in 2014, Mamamoo received the Rookie of the Year award from the 2014 Seoul Success Awards and the Gaon Chart K-pop Awards.  In 2015, the group was named one of the Top 5 K-Pop Artists to Watch in 2015 by Billboard.

In June of 2015, Mamamoo came back with their second album, Pink Funky, and the song "Um Oh Ah Yeh."  The album ranked at the top of 6 Korean major online charts. It also ranked at 7 on the Billboard World Album Chart.

The group made their official debut on June 18 with lead single "Mr. Ambiguous" from their first mini album Hello. The music video for "Mr. Ambiguous" contained cameo appearances from many well-known K-pop industry figures such as CNBLUE's Jonghyun, Baek Jiyoung, Wheesung, Jung Joonyoung, Bumkey, K.Will, and Rhymer. The album contained three previously released collaborations and four new songs. The group made their first live appearance on the June 19 episode of "M Countdown." On June 27, Mamamoo performed "Peppermint Chocolate" with K.Will and VIXX's Ravi on a "Music Bank" half-year special. On July 5, the group held a guerrilla concert at Hongik University in Hongdae. In July, Mamamoo released their first original soundtrack contribution titled "Love Lane" for the Korean drama "Marriage, Not Dating."

On November 21, Mamamoo released their second mini-album, Piano Man. The title track peaked at 41 on Gaon's digital chart. 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. On the January 10 episode of competitive singing show "Immortal Songs 2," Mamamoo performed a rendition of Joo Hyunmi's "Wait a Minute," reaching the final round before losing to Kim Kyungho.

On April 2, 2015, Mamamoo released "Ahh Oop!," the first single of their third mini-album titled Pink Funky. "Ahh Oop!" marked the group's second collaboration with label mate Esna, after she was featured in "Gentleman" on their second mini-album, Piano Man. On June 13, the group traveled to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to perform at an event sponsored by the South Korean Embassy with Crayon Pop and K-Much.
