On August 27, South Korean radio and television network KBS banned the playing of "Won't Give You ()" for what they considered to be overly sexual lyrical content.[12] The lyrics in question, in the style of a first-person narrative, express an unwillingness on the part of the subject to "give" herself or her heart to her partner. Cube Entertainment responded to the ban by stating that the song was intended to be "about the pure feelings of a girl to a guy" and that they were very disappointed by the decision.[13] On October 15, the single "What a Girl Wants" was released.[14]

On December 2, 4Minute, with Korean singers Mario and Amen, released the Christmas song "Jingle Jingle".[15][16] The group recorded a remix with American artist Amerie for her song "Heard 'em All" which was part of the Asian version of her fourth album.[17] The song featured Korean rapper Jun Hyung of label mate Beast.[18]

Countdown on April 14.[47] The song reached number two on the Gaon Chart.[48]

2013-14: Name Is 4Minute, Is It Poppin'? and 4Minute World

From January 26 to February 21, 4Minute participated in the 2013 United Cube Concert tour at venues in China, Korea and Japan.[70]

On April 26, 4Minute released the fourth mini-album Name is 4Minute and the single "What's Your Name?", which was produced by Brave Brothers.[71] Promotion for the single and album involved a set of teaser images where the members were decorated in fantasy-inspired sets and neon tones.[72] In the fourth week of May, the song reached number one on the Gaon Single Chart, making it the group's first chart topper for Gaon.[73] On the edition of June 1, the single reached number one on the Billboard K-pop Hot 100.[74]

On June 28, 4Minute released the summer single "Is It Poppin'?", also written and produced by Brave Brothers. In an interview with Newsen, a Cube Entertainment spokesperson said that the song was "neither a sexy or charismatic concept, but a cute concept - a hip hop dance song that goes well with the summer feel."[75][76] Its Korean title "? " (romanized: Mul Joha?, lit. "How's the Water?"), is a slang phrase that men use to ask if the girls in a club are hot.[77] KBS announced that the lyrics for "Is It Poppin?" were unqualified for broadcast because they contained the English word "ass". 4Minute planned to remove the word from the video for re-evaluation.[78]Billboard K-Town columnist Jeff Benjamin tweeted whether the Brave Brothers' new thing was to sample old-school-sounding R&B. [79] Benjamin also noted that similarly to "What's Your Name," "Brave Brothers uses a similar formula for 4minute's new track, but it all feels smoother." He explains the track "uses subdued snares, a twinkling Ellie Goulding "Lights"-esque sample and a soft, recurring vocal sample. Despite sounding busy on paper, the song flows nicely together as a sweet little blend of R&B and electro-pop."[80] The song peaked at number 9 on the Gaon Digital Chart[81] and number 6 on the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100,[82] selling 606,713 digital downloads.[83]

In September, 4Minute finished its contract with Universal Music Japan, and shut down the group's Japanese official website as well as its fanclub site, 4Nia Japan.[84]

On January 20, 2014, Brave Brothers released the single "Only Gained Weight" which featured 4Minute members Hyuna, Gayoon and Sohyun; the song reached number five on the Melon chart[85] and Gaon.[86][87]

The group's fifth mini-album, 4Minute World, along with its featured track "Whatcha Doin' Today?", was released on March 17.[88] The group promoted the song on various Korean music shows along with the track "Wait A Minute". The shows included KBS's Music Bank, MBC's Show! Music Core, SBS's Inkigayo and Mnet's M! Countdown from March 20-23. The single became the group's first single to debut at number 1 in Korea. On March 30, 4Minute won against 2NE1 and Girls' Generation on Inkigayo. And on April 3, they also won on M! Countdown which took place at Japan. On June 7, 4Minute performed "Whatcha Doin' Today" on Dream Concert along with other Kpop idols including their labelmates Beast, A Pink and BTOB. On October 17, during a performance at a local festival in Seongnam, south of Seoul in South Korea, at least 16 people were killed and 11 injured in an accident where a ventilation grate that people were standing on collapsed.[89] On October 28, 4Minute was chosen as one of the 10 winners of "Style Icon Awards" for their trendy, stylish, and influential fashion, and also performed at the awards show.[90]

2015-2016: Revamped : Crazy, Act. 7 and disbandment

On January 26, 2015, Cube Entertainment revealed that 4Minute would pre-release a track from their next mini-album titled "Cold Rain", marking the first time the group has released a ballad as a single.[91] On February 9, 4Minute released their sixth EP Crazy, along with the title track's music video.[92][93] Their EP debuted at number 1 on Billboard's World Albums Chart.[94] On April 4, 4Minute held a solo concert 4Minute Fan Bash in Myanmar, with around 7,000 fans in attendance.[95]

On January 20, 2016, it was announced that the group would release their seventh mini album Act. 7 on February 1.[96] 4Minute collaborated with American producer Skrillex on the lead single, "Hate".[97][clarification needed]

On June 13, 2016 it was announced that the group would disband following their contract expiration, with only Hyuna renewing her contract with the management agency.[3] A Cube Entertainment representative stated, "As the contract end date approaches, the members have been in discussions for renewal, but while the agency tried to persuade them to continue the group, it ended up accepting the decision by the five members that they will not continue as a group. Due to the different opinion of the members, for all intents and purposes, the group will disband."[98]

Subgroups

Plans for the sub-unit 2YOON (composing of Gayoon and Jiyoon) were announced in late 2012. [99] On January 17, 2013, 2YOON released the album, Harvest Moon,[100] along with the music video for its lead single, "24/7".[101] 2YOON held their debut stage on January 17 at M! Countdown.[102]

Notes

  1. ^ Because the Heart to Heart tracks were put on the release of the full album 4minutes Left a week later, Heart to Heart is not counted as a mini-album, Cube Entertainment instead labeled Volume Up to be the group's third mini-album, and Name is 4Minute to be the fourth mini-album. Sources:
