Honey Poppers, you know how much we love the emerging J-POP girl group, XG, and how fast we fell for ‘Tippy Toes.’ Did we ever think another XG track would be able to take over its place in our playlists? No, but the group’s latest single, ‘MASCARA,’ did just that.
We love ‘MASCARA’ so much, not only because of the catchy beat but the message in the track as well! We know the song’s meaning isn’t too deep, but we are suckers for girl empowerment songs. ‘MASCARA’ is all about never letting another boy ruin your mascara, and that’s the vibes you should be carrying with you all year long!
Now, if you asked us what our favorite parts of ‘MASCARA’ are, well, first is obviously the lyrics “You’re gonna cry me a river, baby / But I won’t waste another single minute on you.” Which are words we’re going to be living by, and also, they’re a flip on the previous lyrics. Number two, we really love the chorus with its question-and-answer type lyrics, “Are You Gonna Let Him Pay (No) / Are You Gonna Let Him Stay (No).” We can’t help but sing-scream along to that part every time it comes on. And lastly, the MV! We just gotta say all the outfits XG wore were so iconic. We’re a bit jealous that we don’t own any of those pieces.
Also, if you were listening to the track, and some lyrics sounded familiar, then you’re right. The lyrics “This is my party I can cry when I want to” give a nod to the classic track ‘It’s My Party’ by Lesley Gore. Which is another track all about getting your heart broken.
XG is set to start their promotions, and we couldn’t be more excited to see how the girls will shine. Plus, we can’t help but dance along with the group. If you can’t get enough of ‘MASCARA’ like us or haven’t had the chance to check the track out yet, you can find where to stream it here. And if you want to get your hands on a physical copy, here you go.
