Labelmates Ailee and Mamamoo's Wheein to release collab single in December
Mamamoo’s Wheein will release her first single after signing with her new label, THE L1VE in collaboration with labelmate, Ailee
Ailee (Amy Lee) and Mamamoo’s only member who chose against singing with RBW but stuck with the K-pop group, Wheein, had both signed with singer/producer Ravi’s new label, THE L1VE in 2021. As soon as news about the two artists signing with the VIXX member’s agency got out, many fans started hoping for a collab between the three talented artists.
Well, there is something to be excited for fans. It is not exactly what they were hoping for, but definitely something just as good. The two THE L1VE artists, Ailee and Wheein have decided to release their first-ever collab single. On November 30 it was announced that the artists are going to team up and release a duet single in December. While Ravi is not able to collaborate with two of his artists at present, he has also announced his upcoming single, 'ANI' featuring (G)I-DLE's Sooyeon that will be released on December 7 at 6 pm KST (4 am ET).
Wheein and Ailee's solo work
Reports of Mamamoo’s Wheein not signing with her label of nine years, RBW Entertainment, had Moomoos' (the fandom) hearts broken as they thought that this meant she was leaving the group. Wheein, however, put an end to all such rumors when she announced that she had chosen to sign with a different label for her solo activities but still was very much an active part of Mamamoo. Apart from her commercial success with Mamamoo, Wheein is also known for her solo ventures after the chart-topping success of her April 2021 debut mini-album ‘Redd’ with the lead single ‘Water Color’.
Ailee on the other hand has had a lot going on for her since she debuted as a solo artist in 2012 and has since then released two studio albums, five extended plays and 21 singles, six of which charted within the top five of the Gaon Digital Chart. After signing with Ravi’s label in July 2021, she released her studio album titled ‘AMY’ on October 27, with the lead single ‘Don't Teach Me’ which was a success.
Ailee and Wheein to release an emotional single
Now that these two powerhouse artists have decided to join hands, fans cannot wait for more news on the collaborative single. Both Ailee and Wheein are Korea's representative talented vocalists with explosive vocals as well as appealing voices and the collab between the two is reported to be a meaningful song about the two artists finding a new home in Ravi’s agency THE L1VE.
The two artists have had many fun interactions that fans have loved since Wheein joined the label back in August when the Mamamoo member made a surprise appearance on Ailee’s Countdown VLive before the release of her album ‘AMY’.
In other news, it is reported that Mamamoo will release their official 2021 concert titled, ‘WAW’ for fans all over the world to enjoy for the second time in the form of a movie. The movie is titled ‘WAW Concert: The Movie’ and will include the entire 2021 concert as well as behind-the-scenes footage featuring the members with a total runtime of 102 minutes.
Not only that but it is also reported that Moonbyul from Mamamoo is working on her solo album after the chart-topping success of Mamamoo’s Hwasa’s second mini-album, ‘Guilty Pleasure’. With only Solar, the group’s leader, remaining, fans are hoping to receive some exciting comeback news from her as well.
