It’s “Showtime” for Wa$$up’s Comeback Written by Cjontai On November 29, 2014

Girl group Wa$$up is back with their newest album Showtime. This is their second official mini album.

The energetic group created mixed reactions with their 2013 debut, which focused on their twerking choreography. Still, the group continues to draw a small following of fans who recognize they have more to offer than ass-shaking and stereotype-heavy MVs.

Months after celebrating their one-year anniversary, fans are treated to six tracks of new music. The album is a mix of Bollywood, dance hall and R&B tracks, giving listeners a buffet of their musical range. The title track is “Shut Up U,” which is your typical diss song aimed at wannabe lovers who can’t keep the interest of the ladies
