For our Soompi featured artist for this week, we have Miss $. They are possibly the first female hip-hop group that specializes in ballads. They started gaining popularity with their debut digital single last year “Don’t Cheat On Me” featuring Nam Gyu Ri. Originally a duo, they have added a new member, Nemo, who was previously in the girl group Shinvi. Miss $ belongs to the same music label as Vibe and Big Mama.

Member Tae Hye Young was the featured rapper on Wax’s ballad “Not Even A Call” earlier this year. The album titled is ‘Miss $ S class’ and has 12 tracks, including it’s track title “What Is Love”.

“What Is Love” is a sad song about a girl who cannot forget her lover after the ending of a relationship. It has a  powerful performance by Nemo and rap narration by Oh Yoo Mi and Tae Hye Young in which the rap and vocals harmonize well in this song.
