Pre-orders for the exclusive CD BOX edition have already commenced, adding to the frenzy of anticipation among their devoted followers.
Earlier, on June 30th, XG released the electrifying track, “GRL GVNG,” as a glimpse of what’s to come in their upcoming Mini Album. The single swiftly became a global sensation, propelling XG to unprecedented heights as the first Japanese artists to secure the top spot on the esteemed U.S. Billboard chart, “Hot Trending Songs, Powered by Twitter,” within a mere week.
With their distinctive HIPHOP / R&B vibe and unparalleled talent, XG has solidified their position as a rising force in the music industry. The forthcoming ‘NEW DNA’ Mini Album promises an epic musical journey that fans worldwide have been eagerly awaiting.
The CD BOX of the 1st Mini Album ‘NEW DNA’ is a bold statement of a “new breed” that is not bound by conventions or borders, and will be released in two versions, “X Ver.” and “G Ver.” With artwork reminiscent of cell division, it presents six entirely new songs that signify evolution. The album is an introduction to XG’s “NEW DNA” through both its visuals and audio, which are at the core of the group’s work.
The “X Ver.” exudes a mysterious and sharp worldview unique to XG. Upon opening the striking purple box, you’ll be captivated by a dazzling hologram, through which you can feel XG’s distinctive “NEW DNA.” The black and silver tones exude sophistication and luxury, presenting an exciting departure from the traditional box style.
The “G Ver.” embodies the refreshing and pure worldview of XG. Removing the opaque white-tone box reveals XG’s “NEW DNA” on the beautiful and clear metallic paper. Details of the “G Ver.” will be released at a later date, where we can expect to see a representation of XG’s dynamic style.

However, for this latest release, it is being made available for general distribution. Additionally, to commemorate this special release, there are numerous benefits for those who pre-reserve or pre-order.
