On June 1, an intro video was posted on their social media accounts which revealed that aespa will be releasing their second mini album, Girls, on July 8.[1] The track "Illusion" was then pre-released on the same day. Pre-orders for the album will start on June 2.[2] "Life's Too Short" will be pre-released on June 24.[2]

"Illusion" is described as a hip hop dance song that features a strong 808 bass and sounds that are able to catch the attention of listeners. In the song, the harmony and rap stands out. The lyrics show the group's color and talks about comparing wanting to devour an opponent in a goblin of fire to seducing.[3]

"Girls" is described as a dance genre song that features a synth sound that's rough-textured and a strong wobble bass. The lyrics talk about the avatars and aespa fighting in a battle with Black Mamba. A new story emerges with their helper NAVIS.[4]
