XG announce latest single WOKE UP to release on May 21!

Hip-hop / R&B-inspired girl group XG announce the release of their 5th single "WOKE UP", set to release on May 21, available in CD BOX and DIGITAL formats. The jacket photo was also revealed.

"Woke Up" is XG's first all-rap song, featuring a groundbreaking style that combines 808 bass with unique East Asian sounds. The members' individual rap performances brim with personality, conveying a strong hip-hop identity and the indefinable quality that is the "Xtraordinary Girls."

JAKOPS (SIMON), executive producer of XGALX, embeds XG's unique philosophy of breaking stereotypes in the song, expressed through a line in the catchy chorus, "Woke up lookin' like this."

The jacket photo features a striking cover of a mouth with black lipstick, an original grillz design with the XG logo and fangs and a mosaic censor over the mouth.

XG’s 3rd single's title track "SHOOTING STAR" and its B-side "LEFT RIGHT," released in January 2023, have so far surpassed 300 million cumulative streams on music streaming platforms. The pre-release track "GRL GVNG" from their 1st Mini Album "NEW DNA," released in June of the same year, topped the US Billboard chart 'Hot Trending Songs Powered by Twitter,' and "NEW DNA" achieved the top position on the Billboard JAPAN 'Hot Albums' comprehensive album chart, marking the global rising artist XG's continuous leaps forward.

XG has also announced their first world tour, "XG 1st WORLD TOUR ‘The first HOWL’," starting in May.
