Source: The Korea Herald/Asia News NetworkThe five ladies of 4Minute will be returning this year with the release of the group’s upcoming EP album, titled “Name Is 4minute,‘ on Friday. Although representatives of the girl’s agency Cube Entertainment had previously announced that the album would be unveiled on Thursday, it has been confirmed that the release will be pushed back a day due to the extra time needed to complete the lead track’s music video. The album’s lead track, “What’s Your Name?,‘ is an upbeat electro-pop song produced by famed local hip-hop music producer and songwriter Brave Brothers, the one-man act who was also behind 4Minute member Hyuna’s 2012 solo single “Ice Cream.‘ According to reports, Cube Entertainment agency officials said they hope to portray 4Minute as a representative K-pop group and are placing special focus on the visual and performance aspects of the upcoming music video, hence the delay in its release. The five-track EP will mark 4Minute’s first production as a group since they released the single “Welcome to School‘ for the “School‘ drama original soundtrack in early December last year. 4Minute debuted in the summer of 2009 with its first single “Hot Issue‘ and released a string of other singles before introducing the group’s first full, album, “4Minutes Left,‘ in 2011. Since the group’s debut, member Hyuna has achieved much success in her solo career starting with her first solo single “Change,‘ which sold nearly 2.5 million copies, as well as appearing on Psy’s YouTube smash “Gangnam Style‘ music video that led to her spin-off single, “Oppa’s Just My Style.‘ Earlier this year, 4Minute also debuted the group’s first subunit, 2Yoon, consisting of members Ji-yoon and Ga-yoon. The duo released their first EP “Harvest Moon,‘ a country-inspired dance album, in January.
