RaNia (minus Riko) to make a comeback + mv teaser!!

Although it comes as short notice, RaNia will be making a comeback after a six-month hiatus this week with the release of a mini album on the 8th!

The group made various announcements on their official fan cafe, but with quite a few announcements falling through and never really coming into action, fans have been waiting to see if they would keep their word this time around without any delays.

It seems plans are indeed finalized as they’ve released press releases today regarding their upcoming comeback with a new photo!

We can see that Jooyi, who was absent for promotions during “Style“, is back, but RaNia is still pictured as five members for Riko is missing from the released photo.

Although there’s no information regarding the missing member, we do know that RaNia has once again recruited a talented team of top composers in the music industry for their comeback! The next composer in the line up is KNS, the hitmaking team behind Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and 50 Cent, who created the girls’ new title track “Just Go“.

“Just Go” is a pop song with elements of swing music. The mixing of the entire album will also be done by audio engineer Steve George who helped mix R. Kelly‘s “I Believe I Can Fly“.

DR Music stated, “We are happy to have met the talented group of KNS. With the help of the connections from Teddy Riley, we were able to work with an amazing composer team. Since RaNia’s formation, the group has been labeled as ‘a team to watch out for’. We will show our talent to become a team that surpasses expectations. We will be going back to the mindset of our rookie days and show a ‘strong feminine’ image like we’ve done at the start of our debut.”

The group is scheduled to release their teaser sometime today before the mini album, which will also contain their previously released tracks, on March 8th, so be on the look out!

At first I was like "oh this is gunna be some corny ballad, Rania?????" but it looks like it'll be a good. People coming back with ballads will always be boring to me unless it's r&b-flavored.
allegsiseu 6th-Mar-2013 07:32 am (UTC)

Do you like k.will?? He's one of the few ballad singers I like. And I feel he has a r'n b or more contemporary sound
stephantasm 6th-Mar-2013 03:04 pm (UTC)
I've never heard of him! Lemme youtube that rn
allegsiseu 6th-Mar-2013 06:00 pm (UTC)
i really recommend his third album. the song he promoted from that was 'butterfly' but my fave is 'come to my crib' with beenzino

also really like wheesung's 'words that freeze my heart'

Finally something good! Better than Style!
Ah can't wait!
Seungho's wife is looking hot and looks like Suzy
krobwell 6th-Mar-2013 06:34 am (UTC)
YEEEESSSSS this sounds good!
Also, full body suits are super sexy. If you can rock a WHITE bodysuit, you should receive an award or something...

I hope Riko isn't gone for good. She's my bias :(
retrominho 6th-Mar-2013 09:25 pm (UTC)
drmusic released a statement that riko is not leaving, but has 'personal reasons' for not coming back with this single much like jooyi last time 'round so no worries i guess!

woah, it sounds really good. looking forward to the mv.
nana_the_dwarf 6th-Mar-2013 07:16 am (UTC)
Sounds good! I'm glad they're coming back.
carlenne 6th-Mar-2013 07:24 am (UTC)
Glad to see Jooyi back but I hope Riko is just gone temporarily :(
paige_nevaeh 6th-Mar-2013 08:15 am (UTC)
Sounds like it's going to be good. I'm excited.
jjang_intae 6th-Mar-2013 09:07 am (UTC)
Why is it one member is always gone when they have a comeback? I hope Riko comes back like Jooyi did. *does happy dance* I've been waiting for so long for a comeback. Everything sounds good, Rania remains flawfree
rikli 6th-Mar-2013 11:37 am (UTC)
can't wait but the hair? wtf
oppameansit 6th-Mar-2013 12:51 pm (UTC)
the outfits too...
cee_90 6th-Mar-2013 12:14 pm (UTC)
I love Rania and glad that they'll be back! I just hope the MV won't be a 10minutes of boring storyline..The teaser MV looks promising and the song doesn't sound bad too. Btw, is Joy quit from the group or what?
ssowon 6th-Mar-2013 01:01 pm (UTC)
Joy quit to have a solo career

I don't see it happening (because I'm bitter over Joy-stans commenting on every video asking for her lol) but she said she was practicing for it back in Thailand.
kotetsu 6th-Mar-2013 01:12 pm (UTC)
JOOYI, thank god I was getting worried she'd leave and her voice is so so good. omg she's blonde ;a; i'm so excited, this sounds rly promising
uledy 6th-Mar-2013 01:24 pm (UTC)
ugh, di in a pants suit. my little bb is so fierce!


really looking forward to their comeback. i hope it's a proper one.

in_noctem 6th-Mar-2013 02:08 pm (UTC)
So so excited! But I have trouble remembering anyone who isn't Tae and Di (and maybe Saem) and the constant rotation confuses me. Speaking of Tae, I'm bored of her bangs.
benihime99 6th-Mar-2013 02:15 pm (UTC)
but what are those outfits?
honeebs 6th-Mar-2013 03:40 pm (UTC)
Sounds nice, welcome back girls.
lysblack 6th-Mar-2013 03:59 pm (UTC)
lol what i said during their style comeback is now true, with each comeback one member goes away, soon rania will become the name of a solo artist.
supplanter 6th-Mar-2013 06:49 pm (UTC)
Except Jooyi came back this time... XD

I half-hope that Riko doesn't come back, because 5 is a good number for a group. 6 is a little too much, usually, as far as line distro goes. But probably would be better to trade Saem for Riko....
lysblack 6th-Mar-2013 06:54 pm (UTC)
but only god knows why, i wouldn't be surprised if she ends up leaving again.
supplanter 6th-Mar-2013 07:18 pm (UTC)
I speculated that she was avoiding YG/on YG's shitlist for not letting him recruit her away from DR Music. XD Her loss though, I guess. >.> Apparently when she refused his offer to join his upcoming girlgroup (presumably what eventually became 2ne1) she was offered a solo, and still said no. But this is from a RaNia fan, so who knows. XD Well, even given how YG neglects his non-BB artists (and non-Lee Hi artists), girl still made the wrong call....
dusti_books 6th-Mar-2013 09:29 pm (UTC)
whaattt RaNia was best as a large member group
supplanter 6th-Mar-2013 10:19 pm (UTC)
I don't like when members have half a line to sing per song. >:| And RaNia is filled with pretty girls, losing one isn't a big deal. And even when they were 7, they still had a bajillion backup dancers, which was irritating. >.>
daisyazul 6th-Mar-2013 04:27 pm (UTC)
Lol that really is short notice
supplanter 6th-Mar-2013 06:53 pm (UTC)
I am v pleased Jooyi is back, for realz.

Riko is apparently at a University they all enrolled in. Various AKPers are under the impression (delusion?) that they are rotating members in order to improve their english, and Xia might be next. I rather assume that they're each just going through their individual crises with the company and the state of the group, but who knows. Jooyi sure doesn't have any solo stuff out from her hiatus. (Though really, that sort of thing probably falls through all the time, so I suppose they weren't necessarily lying about it.)

EDIT: and now someone on hallyu8 is saying that the fancafe and "ppl close to the group" are claiming Riko has some personal matters to attend to, but it has nothing to do with the group/company/manager. I'm suuuuuure that I buy that one....

Oh thank god This looks really good (better than the crap that was Style anyway)
Not looking forward to the drama part. Just the dancing please! That's what RaNia's best at
wushuhimexx 6th-Mar-2013 10:20 pm (UTC)
what happened with Killer? I liked that song :(
ssowon 7th-Mar-2013 12:23 am (UTC)
It will be on this album. I doubt they'll get to perform it on music shows though.
kanbinayume 6th-Mar-2013 10:32 pm (UTC)
I like the teaser so far! the white outfits are a little weird though
strawberry_efeu 6th-Mar-2013 10:44 pm (UTC)
nice to hear Jooyi's voice again~
purekpopology 6th-Mar-2013 11:46 pm (UTC)
SO EXCITED FOR FLAWLESS RANIA!!! This looks like it's going to be badass too.
