    Mamamoo are known for their vocally challenging title tracks but this year they focused more on their dance routine with gogobebe and HIP. Red Velvet on the other hand went to their usual quirky concept (Dumb Dumb, Rookie) with Zimzalabim and Summer sound (Red Flavor, Power Up) with Umpah Umpah.

    RV have 245,043 Melon followers so far while Mamamoo have 216,141.

    Gaon Digital Points:
    gogobebe - 358,096,726
    Zimzalabim - 170,840,604
    Umpah Umpah - 144,949,215

    Bad Boy and Power Up also did very well last year though. And Mamamoo also had their worst performing track (Wind Flower) since 2015 late last year.

    I don't understand the correlation .
    Red Velvet might have went back to their quirky concept but that doesn't determine the quality of their songs or if they are more public friendly . The public simply didn't like Zimzalabim and Umpah Umpah .
    By contrast , the public liked Gogobebe more . Not to mention MMM have been gaining even more traction and public attention this year .

    What I meant was their other songs which were more in the same vein did well before so what went wrong this time? Okay Zimzalabim was probably too much quirkiness but Umpah Umpah is what a public friendly song usually sound.

    Ah , now I understand ! Thank you for explaining !
    I'm honestly not too sure why UU wasn't that successful . Maybe lack of promotions and how fast it came out after Zimzalabim ?
    To be fair , idol music this year has been almost dead in the charts

    I think that a lot of people didn’t take the time to check Umpah Umpah after Zimzalabim.

    Gogobebe is a more friendly song than Zimzalabim and Hip is different from Mamamoo songs but they have the Queendom hype for them and everything about their new album is well made. The songs are great and the concept is perfect.

    Better songs, and some very successful solos that also drew more people etc. It's honestly really impressive to me because it's not like Mamamoo has a company like SM behind them but they did super well. Good for them.

    The problem is not because GP lose interest in them, but because Zimzalabim is too extreme and Umpah-umpah is the most basic song that you can expect from Red Velvet.
    They will went back up when they released another bop.

    Unpopular opinion: lost of interest from the public mixed with two strange (and kinda annoying) title tracks in a row

    In the past we’ve seen popular groups releasing awful songs and they do usually really good. RV is just having a hard time keeping their momentum. It’s their 5th year after all

    what do u expect when they release 4 of the worst songs ever in kpop hstory in a row. pu was succesful at first but fell off quickly in the chrts, rbb flopped as it should, zzlb flopped thankfully and uu is just basic af and deserved to flop. thats gotta affect their momentum.
