Jeonyoul from girl group Stellar released her debut solo album three years after the group’s disbandment.
The album’s title track “Mamacita” is a Latin-based, dance-pop song that boasts a femme fatale charm, heralding a transformation by Jeonyoul into a charming and enchanting figure.
Opening with hypnotizing pizzicato strings that awakens the imagination, the guitar and percussion which creates the Latin atmosphere are subtly addictive throughout the chorus., reaching a climax of trumpets and a flamenco guitar solo that flow elegantly.
Additionally, the Spanish lyrics in the bridge section were borrowed from the song “Calma” by Puerto Rican musician Pedro Capó, perfectly melting the two worlds of Korean pop and Latin pop into one.
Jeonyoul is stunningly beautiful in the music video, sporting various outfits including elegant flowing dresses and summery prints amidst the backdrop of breathtaking scenery. A worthy highlight is the silhouette sunset dance break on the beach opposite a male dance partner.
