Hyuna Releases 5th Mini Album “A’wesome” + MV for “How’s This?”

Hyuna is back with her 5th mini album and a new MV!

On the 1st of August, former 4Minute rapper, Hyuna, came back with her 5th mini album “A’wesome” and the music video for its title track “How’s This?“. For her first solo comeback since 4Minute‘s disbandment, Hyuna wanted to show off a new sexy concept, suitable for summer. Before releasing the full album and MV, she had teased us with two beautiful album images, which showed off both the sexy and cute side of Hyuna. If you missed the teaser pictures, you can check them out here and here.

Check out below a review of Hyuna‘s mini album “A’wesome” and the MV for “How’s This?“:


Hyuna – “A’wesome”

Hyuna‘s 5th mini album “A’wesome” is composed of six songs, including the title track “How This?” and two songs featuring Brand New‘s rapper Hanhae and rapper Isle Qim. Hyuna participated in the writting of all the songs on the album with the exception of the song “Freaky“.

Full tracklist:

  1. U & Me
  2. How’s This?
  3. Do It!
  4. Morning Glory (Feat. Isle Qim)
  5. Freaky
  6. Wolf (Feat. Hanhae)

Songs I Recommend:

  • U & Me – I loooooove this song! It is so addictive, the melody is really nice to the ear and Hyuna’s voice is amazing. It’s a dance song perfect for the summer or to throw a party! Easily the best track on the album in my opinion!
  • Wolf – Ok so… Right at the intro I knew I was going to love this song! Both Hyuna and Hanhae sing, rap and harmonizing perfectly. The melody isn’t as heavy as most of the songs on this album, it’s more of a R&B melody and it’s nice. Definitely a track you need to listen on this album!
  • Do It – I actually only recommend this song for the chorus. I didn’t really like the electro part, it was too much and overwhelming. A part from that, Hyuna’s rap was good and the chorus was for me the best part. It’s nice to listen to and it felt light although it has an heavy melody.

As for the title track “How’s This?“, I don’t think it was that great. There’s definitely much better songs on this album, because we barely hear Hyuna sing/rap. When she does, it’s to say 3 times the same line. I think her previous title track “Roll Deep” was and still is one of the best. Although I’m not a fan of the song, it’s a perfect song to put on at a party or a club. “Morning Glory” and “Freaky” are ok songs. I thought the songs didn’t really stand out compared to the other ones, “Morning Glory” was too monotone, while “Freaky” sounded a bit repetitive.

Note: 7/10

I give it a 7 because I only really liked half of the songs on this album. Although the other songs are not bad, as I said earlier Hyuna can do better and last year’s album is proof of it. Overall it’s not a bad album and it’s still worth listening and supporting our lovely Hyuna.

Hyuna – “How’s This?”

The music video for “How’s This?” is a huge fun twerking party showcasing alcohol, booty, and sexual allusions. For this MV, Hyuna asked more than 100 professional dancers to star in it, her biggest scale MV so far. The song sounds like a club song, making you wanna dance and move your body. This explains why the MV is happening in a club~ We can also see Hyuna showing off sexy dance moves and ruling the party as the beautiful Queen she is~ The MV is worth watching although I’m not a huge fan of the song. I think she has done better in the past and that some of the songs on “A’wesome” are by far better.
