Earlier this year, XG released a music video for their song ‘Left Right’, which has since become their first song to chart in the US. The track has so far peaked at Number 35 on the Billboard Pop Airplay chart.
XG first gained prominence for their viral ‘GALZ XYPHER’ YouTube performance, which featured the members Harvey, Jurin, Maya and Cocona taking turns to rap over instrumentals from J.I.D and Rosalia songs.
Meanwhile, Rico Nasty released a music video for her song ‘Gotsta Get Paid’, a cut from her seventh mixtape ‘Las Ruinas’, in September 2022. The project also features the single ‘Vaderz‘ featuring Bktherula.
In other news, BTS member Suga is set to release his debut studio album ‘D-Day’ later this month, and will be preceded by the pre-release single ‘People Pt. 2’ with IU. The record will be accompanied by the Disney+ documentary Suga: Road to D-Day.
