If you haven’t had “ooh, yeah, I’m looking so lavish” or “if you’re down with me then let’s ride, let’s ride” stuck in your head on a loop, where have you been the past few months? Japanese girl group XG have been stealing hearts all over the world lately, and the U.S. is quickly falling under their spell thanks to “LEFT RIGHT.”

Nothing short of an R&B-pop dreamland, “LEFT RIGHT” is a dance-worthy track that really shows off XG’s charisma and confidence. Its earworm hook and sleek production make it such a fun listen, and you’ll be singing along by the time the song ends! But not only is “LEFT RIGHT” an amazing track – it’s also downright historic. It’s been in the top 40 of Mediabase’s Radio Airplay Chart for U.S. radio for ten weeks straight, making it the first song by an Asian girl group and a female Japanese artist or group to do so! 

The success of “LEFT RIGHT” comes off the heels of XG’s smash “SHOOTING STAR,” which went viral online and has racked up over 60 million Spotify streams to date. XG’s innovative approach to pop really sets them apart, intertwining elements of R&B and hip-hop while bringing feelings of nostalgia and futurism into the mix. There’s truly something for everyone in their catalog, whether you like the kaleidoscopic pop of “SHOOTING STAR” or the sass of “MASCARA.”
