Today (June 27), South Korean news outlet Xportnews reported that Hwasa is currently in the final stages of contract discussions with Psy’s P Nation agency. It also noted that the singer’s contract with long-time label RBW is set to expire at the end of June.
However, MAMAMOO’s fourth member Wheein decided not to renew her contract with the agency. At the time, the singer agreed to an “extended agreement” where she would continue to be a part of MAMAMOO until at least December 2023.
Since then, MAMAMOO have released a number of projects under RBW, such as the mini-album ‘Mic ON’ and the compilation album ‘I Say MAMAMOO: The Best’. The quartet have also released a slew of solo work.
Meanwhile, Hwasa and Psy previously released the song ‘Now’, a remake of Jermaine Jackson and Pia Zadora’s 1984 single ‘When The Rain Begins To Fall’. The remake appeared on Psy’s ninth studio album ‘Psy 9th’.
