Yesterday, XG—the Japanese girl group based in South Korea—released a crisp futuristic visual for their new song titled ‘Left Right’ to their YouTube, which boasts over 1.3 million subscribers. The lyrics promise to trust “to be there for you”, providing security and ease. Furthermore, in the song, the ladies state how they want their lovers’ bodies to move on command. From the sharp choreography to the poppy colours against matte hues on their carefully planned wardrobes, ‘Left Right’ smells of and gives off that classic 00s Hip-Hop/R&B vibe: Think of Black American girl groups like 3LW (‘No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)’), Blaque (‘808’), and TLC (‘No Scrubs’).
Suppose you’re wondering what “XG” stands for. In that case, it is short for “Xtraordinary Girls”, and according to what’s written on Wikipedia, “the group strives to empower young people all over the world with fresh, inventive music and performance.” The group comprises seven members: Chisa (チサ), Cocona (ココナ), Harvey (ハーヴェイ), Hinata (ヒナタ), Juria (ジュリア), Maya (マヤ), and Jurin (ジュリン), the leader. Check out the music video below; it now has over 1.1 million views.
