In a press release, Poshu Yeung, Vice President of Tencent IBG, said, “K-Pop is growing stronger than ever as a pop culture phenomenon. Not only is JOOX proud to be delivering MAMA, the most sought-after K-Pop annual event, straight to K-Pop fans’ hearts and minds for the 5th consecutive year, we are also glad to be continuously expanding our music library and karaoke catalogue with the hottest K-Pop tracks.”
As a music app, JOOX currently has more than 30 million songs in its music library from all over the world, connecting listeners to their favourite artists, songs, albums, and playlists. In September, they rolled out their newest ‘Quick Sing’ feature, which allowed for sing-alongs to pre-selected chorus parts or any particular verse of the song.
The Mnet Asian Music Awards will take place on 6 December, 2020, with the red carpet beginning at 2PM (TH/ID Standard Time) or 3PM (PH/SG/MY Standard Time). The ceremony will start 2 hours later, at 4PM (TH/ID Standard Time) or 5PM (PH/SG/MY Standard Time).
