Singer Hwasa expressed her thoughts as she wrapped up promotional activities for the new song “I LOVE MY BODY”
On Sep 22nd, Hwasa wrote, “It was my first time loving my body this much. I received a lot of love and energy during the promotional activities of ‘I LOVE MY BODY’. I hope this energy reaches many people.”
She expressed her gratitude, “Thank you to the dancers, staff and P NATION family who shared this wonderful journey with me, as well as to CEO Psy who supported me behind the scenes.”
Hwasa’s thoughts on her recent promotional activities are special because she was at the center of controversies related to explicit content and sexualization this year. Especially in June, Hwasa revealed her start with P NATION through a performance where she signed the contract during Psy’s “SUMMER SWAG 2023” Seoul concert. Amidst her move to a new agency and the announcement of her second act as a solo artist, an incident occurred in which Hwasa cried the most due to malicious comments.
Hwasa was embroiled in controversy over indecent performance as she showed sensational movements while performing her solo song “Don’t Give” on the stage of a university festival. Subsequently, Student Parents’ Human Rights Protection Solidarity filed a complaint against Hwasa for performing obscenity, and she was investigated by the police.
On Sep 21st, Hwasa completed the last promotional stage for “I LOVE MY BODY” on Mnet’s “M Countdown”.
“I LOVE MY BODY” is a soul-pop song that has a dash of the 808 bass sound and ’70s Motown soul music, bringing a modern touch. The song charms listeners with its catchy and addictive hook. It is an important reminder to oneself to adore your body.
Immediately after its release, “I LOVE MY BODY” topped the iTunes Top Songs chart in 8 countries worldwide and entered the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart at No.8. On domestic music charts, the song has continued to rise in rank, remaining in the top 10 and maintaining its enduring popularity.
