Got7 member Jackson Wang has just released a new music video and announced the release date for his sophomore album “MAGIC MAN”. The singer/producer’s latest drop “Cruel” is the official second single off of his upcoming project.
Jackson comments, "'Cruel' is a very special record for me. It really set the precedent for where the narrative of the album needed to go and sound.” He further states, “We were working on many records before this one, but we were struggling to find a clear direction. ‘Cruel’ is like a manifestation of the environments and hurdles we had to overcome at the time. Every time we felt we were getting close, something slips past us and it all felt so far away. Once ‘Cruel’ came into our hands, it all made sense for us, it was like a beautiful mental breakdown. ‘Cruel’s’ grunge, and raw sound are exactly the perfect representation of the distorted and warped story that I am trying to unfold. It is the opus to a wild yet beautiful symphony."
He also revealed “MAGIC MAN” will drop on September 9, 2022. This 10-track LP will feature Jackson at his most vulnerable and follows his journey as he finds himself in an alternate reality, operating under the laws of mystery, temptation, and confusion.
