    YUQI – 1st Mini Album YUQ1 (SPECIAL Version)

    What's wrong with being a 'geek'? The adorable 'FREAK'

    WooGi's first mini album [YUQ1]

    Ugi, a member of the music powerhouse (Girls' Generation), who achieved four consecutive 'PAKs' (perfect all-kill) on major Korean music charts with her second album [2] released in January, is releasing her first solo album [YUQ1], which captures her unique color. Having previously demonstrated her endless potential for growth through her digital single "A Page," Woo-ki has built a diverse musical career, receiving requests from top artists in Korea and abroad for her charming voice.

    YUQ1, her first mini-album, is a reflection of Woo-ki herself. The album captures Yugi's free-spirited yet delicate artistic side, and the letter 'I' in her name is represented by the number '1' to visually express her cONFidence in her first album.

    The title track, "FREAK," is full of Woogi's lIVEly energy and presents something special in the midst of the repetitIVE and boring everyday life. In particular, she sings about the unique charm of "FREAK" with honest lyrics such as "She's a Certified Freak" and "I'm a Certified Freak," revealing that the person she has been singing about is actually herself. The song is full of Woogi's confidence to acknowledge her differences from others and to embrace them as her own personality, which makes the listener feel a fresh sense of liberation.

    (Woo-ki, who has written many of the songs on her group albums, has also written and composed the majority of the songs on her first solo album, including the title track "FREAK," which adds to the authenticity and completeness of her first solo album. Woo-ki has also established her own musical color with more diverse genres and stories through features from various artists such as Minnie, pH-1, and Lexie LIU.

    YUQ1, the first mini-album that cONFidently expresses the all-around artist WooGi's personality

    I want all the 'FREAKs' around the world to sing with me in the world with cONFidence,

    Today, cute geeky WooGi starts a fun party for lonely 'FREAKs'?

    01. FREAK

    Composed by Jop Pangemanan, Kyle Faulkner, Audun Agnar Guldbrandsen, Woogi, Siixk Jun

    Lyrics by Jop Pangemanan, Kyle Faulkner, Audun Agnar Guldbrandsen, 우기

    Arranged by Siixk Jun, Krap

    'FREAK' makes you want to open the window and scream in a moving car, in a repetitIVE boring routine.

    The band's sound is simple and minimalist, with charming Bossa rhythms and organic instruments that open up the day.

    At 9AM, "OMG, I overslept!"

    02. My Way

    Composed by WOOGI, BOYTOY, MOJO, JIWOONG (PLZ), SOHI (PLZ)

    Lyrics by 우기, BOYTOY, MOJO, SOHI (PLZ), JIWOONG (PLZ), SOHI (PLZ)

    Arranged by BOYTOY, MOJO, JIWOONG (PLZ)

    It's time to spread your wings, 'My Way' with a sincere message from WooGi.

    The analog, vintage synth instrumentation paints a picture of a hopeful tomorrow.

    At 2PM, "It's up to ME."

    03. Drink It Up (Feat. pH-1)

    Composed by WooGi, BOYTOY, MOJO, Milli Oshyun, MUNA (PLZ), XU (PLZ), Jenna (PLZ), Disko, pH-1

    Lyrics by 우기, BOYTOY, MOJO, MUNA (PLZ), XU (PLZ), Jenna (PLZ), pH-1

    Arranged by BOYTOY, MOJO, Milli Oshyun

    'Drink It Up' is filled with a dreamy atmosphere.

    The deep, rich vocals of WooGi and pH-1's melodic singing rap create a chill vibe, and the cinematic pre-chorus section adds to the song's splendor.

    At 6PM, "A shot of WhisKEY, please."

    04. Red Rover

    Composed by Elsa Curran, Stela Cole, Joshua Murty, Mark Schick, Stela Cole, Joshua Murty, Mark Schick

    Lyrics by Elsa Curran, Stela Cole, Joshua Murty, Mark Schick

    Arranged by Joshua Murty, Mark Schick

    'Red Rover' is packed to the gills with funky sounds.

    Nu Disco-esque instrumentation, whispery, charming rapping, slap bass, organ, and strings add to the dark appeal.

    At 8PM, "Haven't you heard? I'm the crazy b*tch around here."

    05. On Clap (Feat. Lexie LIU)

    Composed by Oscar Scheller, Jesse Thomas, Naomi Wild, Siixk Jun, Lexie LIU

    Lyrics by Oscar Scheller, Jesse Thomas, Naomi Wild, Woogi, Lexie LIU

    Arranged by Siixk Jun

    'On Clap' is a hip groove with a unique arrangement using fresh Bubble FX.

    A 4-bar bass loop is repeated to minimize the beat and maximize the hook to capture Woozy's bragging swagger.

    At 10PM, "Follow my lead."

    06. Everytime (With MINNIE ((G)I-DLE))

    Composed by 우기, BOYTOY, MOJO, s'oom (PLZ), Zun (PLZ), MUNA (PLZ), Disko, WARMing, Junsoo Lyrics by 우기, BOYTOY, s'oom (PLZ), Zun (PLZ), MUNA (PLZ)

    Arranged by BOYTOY, Disko

    'Everytime' is a cozy picture of youth drawn by WooGi and MinNi.

    It is a medIUm-tempo emo-pop song that features the contrasting but harmonious vocal tones of the two singers and the emotional melody of the acoustic guitar that leads the song.

    At 12AM, "For our youth."

    07. Could It Be

    Composed by Mike Elizondo, Micky Ekko

    Lyrics by Mike Elizondo, Micky Ekko

    Arranged by Mike Elizondo, Micky Ekko

    'Could It Be' is a golden DAWN, a dreamlike reflection of a day gone by.

    The retro sound that only 1970s analog instruments like the Juno, Prophet-5, OP-1, and others can create is like having a pleasant dream.

    At 2AM, "It was a dreamy day. Good night, everyone."
