After working as an RBW Entertainment artist for a long time from 2014 to June 2023, it wasn’t easy to transfer as an idol to another label due to possible overlapping schedules.

However, Hwasa was able to manage her status as a member of MAMAMOO and as a soloist, leading her to continuously make waves in the K-pop scene.

When asked what it was like to transfer to another company during a concert, Hwasa replied:

“I felt a huge ‘P.’ I also improvised, and Psy was also very spontaneous, so that moment came true. I thought it wasn’t P Nation for no reason. It was a day that I was thankful for in many ways. I felt very confident.”

Meanwhile, during her time in RBW, Hwasa leaned towards “sexy” and “dark” music, including her hits “Twit,” “Maria,” and “I’m a B.”

Since her transfer to P Nation, the idol pursued brighter and richer songs, such as “I Love My Body,” and “Chili.”

When asked if she purposely challenged herself to change in music direction after transferring labels, Hwasa explained:

“Psy oppa told me to look back on the reason why I was loved by people. I felt that energy strongly in ‘I Love My Body’. The more I did music, the heavier my heart had become, so it seemed like I was also getting on the darker side, but ‘I Love My Body’ reminded me of ‘me’ and made me healthy.”

She continued:

“I’m here to tell you now, but while preparing this song, I let go of a lot of things and threw myself away. Until the day before our comeback, I had a lot of nightmares due to unfamiliarity, but now that I think about it, I can’t help but laugh. I wonder what I was so worried about that I locked myself away like that? Looking back, it wasn’t a big deal.”

She also hinted at an album release ahead of its 10th debut anniversary in June with MAMAMOO, saying:

“I’m going to put everything into preparing for the album. And I’m going to meet more fans. I’m very excited, and I hope you look forward to it this year as well.”
