K-pop girl gang XG has released their third single “SHOOTING STAR” on January 25, 2023. Since then, the music video has gained over 12 million views in the two weeks and has topped the YouTube charts in twenty-five regions. It was on the No. 1 spot in the UK, Canada and Japan, No. 3 in the US and No. 1 on the worldwide music video trend ranking Music Videos Trending (worldwide).
Today, XG dropped the performance video of “SHOOTING STAR”. While the previous performance video for “MASCARA” was shot in an abandoned factory, the filming of “SHOOTING STAR” took place on a stage with glowing lights and a starry ceiling, to give the feeling of outer space.
