Mamamoo's Hwasa launches YouTube channel
Mamamoo's Hwasa is the latest K-pop star to launch her own YouTube channel to celebrate her birthday. In the first video, she posted an introduction, "Hwasa or Maria. I'll share my daily life with you. Hwasa? Maria? Let me see. This is me. Now, let me tell you about me. Actually, there's nothing special."
In addition to the introduction video, she also shared a draft version of the group's 2020 hit, Dingga. As of this posting, the channel has already racked up 318k subscribers.
Hwasa is also set to release a collaborative song with Kinda Blue, an anonymous artist who makes covers on YouTube. On an Instagram post by user @nine21.kr, the song's title seems to be I can't make you love me and is set for an August 3 release date.
