According to SPOTV News, MAMAMOO will release the "Best Album" in September. This new album is said to compile the songs the girl group released in the past seven years since their debut in 2014.
MAMAMOO's "Best Album" is said to contain not only the girl group's hit songs but also two unreleased tracks.
The media outlet added that the MAMAMOO members carefully selected the tracks that they will include in their upcoming album and that they put a lot of effort into working on the two new songs.
