Girl group Mamamoo's Wheein has finally dropped her second solo album titled ‘Whee’. Now, fans are waiting for the band's other member Moonbyul to make a solo comeback with 'Lunatic'. Wheein is the first member of Mamamoo to drop a solo album in 2022 and fans find it extra special since it is also her first solo album with her new label. After her contract with RBW expired, she signed on with VIXX Ravi’s newest label THE L1VE. And now, the album has topped charts like iTunes.

Moomoos (Mamamoo’s fandom) were eagerly waiting as Wheein dropped several fantastical concept photos that hinted at an Alice in Wonderland theme for her title track ‘Make Me Happy’. Her label went all out as we got teasers after teasers that showed off the K-pop idol’s youthful charms as well as her chic and mature side. Many have agreed that ‘Make Me Happy’ suits the Mamamoo member the best since it complements her free-spirited nature and allows her vocals to shine as the arrangement takes a backseat while she plays with the melody.
