The release of ‘Whee’ marks ther former’s first project under her new label, THE L1VE, which she signed with last year after her contract with longtime label RBW Entertainment had expired. She had been the only MAMAMOO member to opt out of a contract renewal.
In a four-star review of ‘Whee’, NME’s Abby Webster described the mini-album as a “complete overhaul” from her project prior, ‘Redd’. “[Wheein] may not have emerged from that crucible yet, vision crystallized – but, even when Wheein drifts, she soars.”
