In the introduction of “The Beginning” album, it said, “Rookie girl group FIFTY FIFTY has gained recognition for their deep musicality and diverse images with their debut album. The group releases [FIFTY FIFTY – The Beginning] that includes a collaboration with Sabrina Carpenter. You can listen to another version of ‘Cupid’ completed with the voice of American actress and singer-songwriter Sabrina Carpenter. There are also re-recorded songs from Live In Studio to enhance the variety of the group’s first EP”, adding “The journey of girls, who long for freedom and eventually move toward their utopia beyond the chaos in reality, shown in FIFTY FIFTY’s debut album will be introduced to the world once again through [The Beginning]”.

In the credit of “The Beginning”, Warner Music appears as the publishing company, while Attrakt is also named as the management company. The lyricist and arranger of the songs in this album is SIAHN, which is the artist’s name of The Givers’s CEO Ahn Sung-il, who is accused of luring FIFTY FIFTY members into terminating contracts with Attrakt.

As such, the public is questioning the reason FIFTY FIFTY released this album.
