At THP, we have stars in our eyes every time we see XG – and we’ve been keeping up with them since their debut with ‘Tippy Toes’ – but we think ‘SHOOTING STAR’ might be their shiniest era to date. Jurin, Chisa, Hinata, Juria, Cocona, Maya, and Harvey are really kicking off 2023 on a high note with a motivational anthem that’s bound to get you dancing!
‘SHOOTING STAR’ is all about working hard to bring your goals to life and build a life you can be proud of, and that’s exactly the energy we needed right now! Meanwhile, the stunning beat is something we’d describe as “kaleidoscopic trap,” and the magical feeling complements the lyrics about their dreams coming true so well.
“I put in work like it’s a habit
It’s a big move, every day’s like a dream
Makin’ big moves, yeah, we do it for our team…”
The b-side ‘LEFT RIGHT’ keeps the energy going while describing the girls’ focus on their dreams rather than any “opps” or “drama queens.” It’s a slightly more relaxed, R&B-influenced version of the message on ‘SHOOTING STAR’ and a fantastic companion track. This is XG coming into their own and not stressing about the “how” or “why” – no matter what, they know they’ll fight to get what they want. Jurin told Billboard:
Once again, XG has come back with a serve that we can’t get out of our heads. They’ve more than proven their superstar potential, and ‘SHOOTING STAR’ and ‘LEFT RIGHT’ are a step further into the galactic territory they’re destined for! This feels like a new era for the girls that we can’t wait to follow along with.
