MOMOLAND Reportedly Prepping For A New Album & March Comeback
The long wait of fans for MOMOLAND's new album will soon come to an end. The K-pop girl group has reportedly preparing to make a comeback with the release of a brand new album next month.
A report indicates that MOMOLAND plans to release an album in mid-March. However, Soompi quoted a source as saying that the exact date of the group's comeback has yet to be finalized.
The group's last comeback was in June 2018 when they dropped their new album, Fun to the World, and its title track "BAAM." The song was composed by Shinsadong Tiger and Beomi Nangi, the same producers behind the hit song "BBoom BBoom."
The group is set to end Asia fan meetings in Osaka, Japan on February 13. Apparently, the group will be backed on the road in April which makes sense since the nine-member group is about to make a comeback next month.
Hyebin, Yeonwoo, Jane, Taeha, Nayun, Daisy, JooE, Ahin, and Nancy had a huge 2018. The group and their hit song "Bboom Bboom" have been nominated in several year-end awards shows. They have won several awards in these events including the Discovery of the Year Award from the 2018 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) and the World Rookie Award from the 2019 Gaon Chart Music Award.
They also took home Bonsang awards from Seoul Music Awards, Korean Popular Music Awards, and Soribada Best K-Music Awards, and the Digital Bonsang award for "Bboom Bboom" from the Golden Disc Awards.
MOMOLAND is also currently at No. 10 of this month's K-pop girl group brand reputation rankings. The list is lead by BLACKPINK and the YG Entertainment's female group is followed by GFRIEND and TWICE. MOMOLAND's ranking is expected to go higher once the group's new album is released.
MOMOLAND made their debut in November 2016 as a seven-member group in a survival program, titled Finding Momoland. They released their first EP Welcome To Momoland at the same time. Five months later, the group added two more members, Daisy and Taeha.
The K-pop group did not hit instant success when they debut. They gain popularity when they dropped their third EP, Great!, with the title track "Bboom Bboom" in January 2018. The group won in several music shows and the song went viral amidst accusation of plagiarism.
Russian girl group Serebro accused K-pop group of plagiarizing their song "Mi Mi Mi" with "Bboom Bboom". Shinsadong Tiger denied the allegations and pointed out that the bass line in both songs and the four-stanza chord are commonly heard in a retro house or in electro swing genres.
