Set to release on November 19th, Nicole Jung has released two teasers for her upcoming solo release “MAMA” this week. The first, released on November 10th, was more of a teaser of a teaser. Featuring Nicole with about sixty thousand fake tattoos splattered all over her, the first teaser doesn’t give much of anything away. Hell, even the music played over it sounds like the intro beat to an eighties Madonna concert more than anything else.
Luckily, the second teaser divulged a bit more and from what can be seen, things look perfect.
If there is one talent which any Nicole Jung solo should take advantage of, it’s her dancing ability. The beat, a classy jazzy number, will hopefully allow for a dance number that is more expansive than what is usually seen in K-Pop due to either large group numbers that don’t really try to integrate all members at once or solo singers who are usually picked more for their vocals than their choreography skills. Seeing as how Nicole has the full capabilities to be a great showman on the stage, it’s a relief to see that that’s the direction that the music video appears to be taking.
While I’m generally not a fan of dance-in-the-box concepts (mainly because it’s the apparent “go-to” for girl group videos) but if anyone is tailor-made for such a video, it’s Nicole.
