Piggy Dolls coming back with full length "Hakuna Matata"

Submitted: Jul 17 2011 05:50 PM by Kaye

Three member girl group Piggy Dolls debuted earlier this year with their first song and single "Trend". Not so much their music but their appearance made the public keep an eye on them, seeing that the group consisted of 3 girls that weren't as skinny as all the other girls in the Korean showbiz.

Now, few months after their debut, Piggy Dolls will be returning to the music scene with the release of a new album called "Hakuna Matata". The album will feature the songs from their first single as well as new songs ranging in many different genres such as Reggae, House, Pop Rock, R&b and influences of Club tunes, Trance and Dubstep. Though the title of the album will have people thinking about Disney's "The Lion King" right away, the phrase initially means "There are no Worries" in Swahili.

It's been said that the group's original concept of being "Piggy Dolls" was in fact a real concept just as any other band would come up with a "dark" or "cute" concept for their comeback or debut. The girls of the girl group were apparently forced to eat as much as they could, and gain weight so that they could be marketed as a "fat" girl group. Although they said before that they wouldn't go on a diet just to be able to become more popular, it seems that the girl group did lose weight for their comeback and changed companies for their new release.

Piggy Dolls is scheduled to come back with their new release on July 21st.

    I don't like that they were made to gain weight like it was no big deal. Body image is already a huge problem, and forcing them to eat for one album, and then lose it for the next is just retarded.

      The whole part is a rumor and there aren't official sources to back it up (as no company would reveal such things) but it can be taken for granted that those girls were indeed forced to gain weight until a certain point.

    Only the really large one is still chubby. The other two look just as skinny as all the other girl groups now.

    If they were forced to gain a ton of weight, that's really unfortunate. Stretch marks don't really go away...
