While the summer comebacks have been a little lackluster so far, MAMAMOO has descended from on-high to save us from a summer of mediocrity with a singularly fantastic live performance on the always excellent “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook.”
It’d be one thing if MAMAMOO simply slayed a rousing rendition of “Mr. Ambiguous.” It’s quite another when the group also managed to squeeze in a medley of more pop hits than one could shake a stick at in less than a minute while still staying true to their amazing sound (The medley kicks off at around 1:40 but watch the whole thing for humanity’s sake).
Starting with SISTAR’s “Touch My Body,” MAMAMOO then essentially dropped the mic on Big Bang twice (GD and Taeyang get honored with their “I’m a Good Boy” as well), IU, EXID, A Pink, miss A, JYP, AOA and a host of others that I’m having a hard time recalling in my MAMAMOO-induced daze.
I don’t even care if every single July comeback stinks from here to high heaven, MAMAMOO has redeemed the summer and they didn’t even need a music video to do it.
