Mamamoo’s Solar is back with her first solo mini-album titled 容: Face! This EP is Solar’s first comeback since her solo debut with ‘Spit It Out’ in April 2020. We at THP have been eagerly anticipating Solar’s EP since her fellow Mamamoo members Hwasa, Wheein, and Moonbyul had their solo comebacks.
Face features five songs with an amazing variety of sounds and genres that only Solar can pull off! She also contributed to writing the lyrics for four of her songs and composing the music for three of them—the talent.
If we used only one word to describe Solar’s new mini-album, it’d be “range.” Each of her songs has a unique sound, and Solar shows just how versatile her vocals can be. She’s setting the standard for everyone, so let’s rave about some of the songs on Solar’s new EP Face!
Of course, we have to talk about the title track! ‘Honey’ has such a killer beat paired with catchy lyrics and Solar’s addictive vocals. And we can’t forget to mention Solar’s rap verse either! None of us were ready for it, but we were not disappointed. The music video’s aesthetic, monochrome sets, and coordinating outfits are just as perfect as the song. 10/10 would recommend jamming out to ‘Honey.’
Speaking of things we weren’t prepared for, did anyone have Solar singing a song about big booties on their 2022 K-Pop bingo card? We didn’t. But did we need this gem? Absolutely, we did. ‘Big Booty’ is a jazzy song that reminds us of Mamamoo’s signature swing era! Solar’s scatting and vocalizing are so satisfying, and we can tell the band put their hearts into playing the instrumentals.
One of our favorite b-sides from Solar’s new mini-album is ‘Zinggle Zinggle’! The R&B melody is unmatched, and we could listen to it all day. She sings about those conflicting feelings you have whenever you and your partner get into and out of fights. Of course, you love them, and you think they’re the one. But the constant arguing makes you tired. At least we know we won’t get tired of this song!
Solar’s new EP 容: Face is everything we could hope for in a solo comeback! We’re so lucky to be a MooMoo, and we hope Solar gets the recognition she deserves!
