Hip-Hop / R&B girl group XG made their first epic comeback and released their 2nd single, ‘MASCARA,’ as a digital download and a limited-edition CD Box Set. The music video was posted at the same time. After the release of ‘MASCARA,’ XG is scheduled to appear in several Korean Music TV shows and feature on Billboard in New York’s Times Square.
XG Powerful Comeback with ‘MASCARA’ & Performance on Music Shows
‘MASCARA’ is built on a powerful, dynamic bass line that fuses elements of Pop and Trap to create a track that defies genre. The song expresses XG’s bold defiance in the lyric – nobody is going to ruin their mascara, nobody is going to make them cry. The track feels fresh but also powerful and perfectly captures XG’s presence and fearless spirit.
The music video also reflects the concept and worldview of ‘MASCARA’, with XG expressing this as high-energy moves and dynamic visuals.
The spiral staircase in the intro is reminiscent of an eye and draws us into a different ‘MASCARA’ world.
The visuals are sleek and stylish, and the performance scenes are truly empowering with dynamic and eye-catching moves. The girls have their confidence and unity on full display as they move forward to the next stage of their already impressive career.
Reactions to XG ‘MASCARA’ Music Video Release
Fans from all over the world have already commented on the music video:
“The quality is exceptional!”
“Their abilities are outstanding! All of them are leads and are the stars of the show!”
“A series of perfect songs!

“So proud to see such a great group from Japan being seen by the world!”

XG First Ever Live Performance
To prepare these fans, XG’s first live performance was broadcast just before the release of the music video. In this live performance, they sang two songs – their debut single, Tippy Toes, and their second single, ‘MASCARA.’
While the girls wore black outfits for ‘Tippy Toes,’ for ‘MASCARA,’ they chose outfits with lavender as the key color. XG gave such a stunning performance that it was hard to believe it was their first time performing live together.
“We want to take everything we’ve built up so far, where we are seven members who can make such an impression on people that they will say, ‘I’ve never seen a group like this before’.”Jurin
