K-pop singer Whee In (also known as Wheein) released her solo track “Easy” on Tuesday (April 17). A groovy alt R&B tune, the single features rapper Sik-K.
Beginning with a soft “You don’t know me” and a gentle melody, the rhythmic beat picks up and the Mamamoo member delivers airy, yet dramatic, vocals as she sings about ending a relationship because she’s not being respected by her lover. Sik-K adds a mellow rap bridge to the song over a glitchy beat as he denies her claims, serving as a counterpart to Whee In’s confident crooning.
The song’s music video features the pair as a couple verging on breakup, as one half of the relationship ignores the other, even as they spend time together. Mamamoo’s Hwasa makes a cameo, and the stylish video dramatically ends with the Westworld-style revelation that the pair are robots, as Whee In shoots a rocket from her arm at Sik-K, killing him.
Released on her 23rd birthday, “Easy” is Whee In’s first solo single outside her work with the girl group.
The other members of Mamamoo have released several songs and collaborated with artists outside of the quartet in the past. The release of “Easy” comes after last month’s Yellow Flower EP from the foursome, which peaked at No. 7 on the World Albums chart.
