Straight off the back of releasing his solo debut album ‘MIRRORS’ this past fall, GOT7’s Jackson Wang returns with his new single, “100 Ways”.
“100 Ways” is being distributed by Asian music powerhouse 88rising. To complement the single, Jackson has also dropped the music video for “100 Ways” on the same day. Directed by longtime collaborator Daniel Cloud Campos, the music video depicts Jackson as a fearless warrior on a journey to reunite with his beloved in the face of adversity, pairing Cloud’s breathtaking, operatic visuals with Jackson’s masterful dance choreography, performed alongside world-renowned dance crew the Kinjaz.
Speaking on “100 Ways”, Jackson explains, “This song combines two universal themes that people wish they could control since the beginning of time, but in the end we just can’t. Time and love.”
“100 Ways” is the first new music released by Jackson since ‘MIRRORS’, which already boasts more than 160M+ streams worldwide and collectively received #1 Independent Albums, #2 Rap Album Sales, #3 Digital Albums, #4 Top Current Albums and #4 Top Album Sales on the charts, cementing Jackson as a global superstar.
In 2019, Jackson also teamed up with Stephanie Poetri for “I Love You 3000 II” (131M+ streams worldwide) and again with 88rising and Joji for “Walking (feat Swae Lee & Major Lazer)” off the Head In The Clouds II album (70M+ streams worldwide, #39 spot in Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 Chart – Radio), proving everything that Jackson touches is a hit. Other chart topping singles that display his writing, composition and arrangement ability include, “Different Game” featuring Gucci Mane, which reached #1 on the US iTunes Hip-hop/Rap Chart and “Fendiman” which transcended both musical and cultural heights as the first record from a Chinese artist to chart #1 on the US iTunes Single Chart and Pop Chart, and “Papillon”, which quickly topped Billboard China’s V Chart and landed a #1 spot in QQ music. The music video for “Papillon” gained over 27 million views in just 48 hours, stirring fandom with over 59 million fans and making “Weibo’s Hot Topic List”. Shortly after, his single “Okay” landed the #1 spot on the iTunes Chart in four countries, making him the fastest Chinese artist to reach 10 million views on VEVO.
