However, it still features a good number of twists and turns that highlight the unit. Clear, Solar It is moonbyul bring your A game, excelling on both vocals and rapping to create a standout EP that is sure to see the replay button many times over.
With “Act 1, Scene 1” comes the title track ‘GGBB’, which also stands for “Good Girl Bad Boy”, along with an accompanying music video. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can check out the MV below.
The song is unbelievably catchy, recalling older pop classics. After the EP’s release, fans took to social media to express their love and admiration for MAMAMOO+’s new music. Even we had the constant repetition of the song throughout the day, from early morning to late afternoon.
Here are some things we love about ‘GGBB’.
1. Old Song References
Starting with the track listing, we were struck by what appeared to be a reference to the title track of their older song ‘gogobebe’. Whether it’s intentional or not, it’s a really nice nod to its roots as MAMMOO members. It’s as if Solar and Moonbyul are recognizing the group as a whole and that MAMAMOO+ is simply an extension of their identity as artists. There are also more obvious instances like lyrics referencing ‘Mr. Ambiguous’ in the first verse. Whether official or not, it creates a very deep connection with the fans who have supported MAMAMOO for so long.
2. A break for modern and modern dance

Whether you’re watching the music video or just listening to the song on Spotify, the overall vibe of ‘GGBB’ is catchy. It makes you feel like you’re watching a full musical in just under 4 minutes. The cinematography and overarching theme definitely add to that feeling. With that in mind, MAMAMOO+ could probably make an award-winning musical all on its own.
