Music is a universal language with the power to wipe the lines right off the map. It’s truly a magical and beautiful thing. Today I would like to celebrate the music of Jackson Wang.
Born 28 March 1994 the multi-talented Jackson Wang is one of the busiest men in the world. In addition to an incredibly popular music career, the man is actor, designer, music producer, oh, and he’s an international fencing competitor.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Wang is incredibly proud of his Chinese. In a 2020 interview with Forbes Magazine he stated “My goal is just to put my name out on the table just to let everybody to get to know me. I want to … let people know that Chinese kids are working on good music too.”
Wang burst on the scene as part of the South Korean boy band Got7 in 2014 under JYP Entertainment.
The group left JYP in 2021 when their contracts expired.
For his first solo album Mirrors Wang was incredibly hands on from start to finish. In addition to music production and lyric writing he also personally supervised the packaging and music video productions.
The albums lead single “Bullet to the Heart” was a number one hit.
After the success of Mirrors Wang started working on his second studio album Magic Man.
His newest music video “Come Alive” was released on Friday (9 December. 2022) and has already amassed more than 849,000 views.
One of the things I love about Wang’s music videos is that they are incredibly theatrical. From the costumes to the lighting and direction, he’s incredibly entertaining to watch.
More to come so…
