What will be the effect with Sun Ye being featured on Mighty Mouth’s title track “Energy” from their new album released today?
Sun Ye was featured in Mighty Mouth title track “Energy” from their debut album released today and as a result is being compared with Yoon Eun Hye who had featured in Mighty Mouth debut single “I Love You”.
Many music lovers have high expectations of Sun Ye, particularly as the success of Mighty Mouth’s debut single, “I Love You” was attribtuted to Yoon Eun Hye’s participation and her part in the song had a big percentage. So this has largely contributed to the expectation that they have for Sun Ye participation.
According to a music critic, “Yoon Eun Hye was singing for the first time since hanging up her mic from her Baby Vox days which explains why ‘I Love You’ was extra refreshing and special. People was piqued to see if she could cut it as a singer still. So there is every reason for Sun Ye to do well since she is an important member of the Wonder Girls and highly popular among fans now.”
According to CJ Music managing Mighty Mouth, “It would be a great feeling if we can achieve success once again with this feat. track. The feat. song would be in for direct comparison with the previous and we are pretty worried”, as they took a conservative view of whether it would be a success.
The song “Energy” which Sun Ye is featured is a light-hearted song and combines the talented rapping of Mighty Mouth with Sun Ye’s mature vocals, bringing out the sweet bubbly flavor of the track.
Mighty Mouth released “I Love You” in March 2008 and swiftly named the most popular song in World Music charts, Inkigayo Take 7, Music Bank Final 3. It also picked up Song of the Month and Rookie of the Month plus other awrds.
