    If you're across the world of K-pop, then Jackson Wang is undeniably a name that is more than familiar to you. Maybe you know him from his work with Got7, or from his work as a director, producer, songwriter, dancer, or – most surprisingly – a competitive fencer. But most likely, you know him as a dominant force in the world of K-pop.

    Releasing his debut solo album, Mirrors, in 2019, it's been a quiet couple of years for Wang's solo career, with Got7 releasing their latest album, Breath Of Love: Last Piece, back in 2020. However, he's still been releasing a number of standalone singles on the side, and earlier this year, tracks like Blow and Cruel served as tasters of his forthcoming second album.

    Dubbed Magic Man, the record is a masterful piece of work for Wang. Self-produced alongside Daryl K and Henry Cheung, the record is heavily inspired by the likes of '70s rock, allowing Wang to showcase an entirely new musical persona in his newest and most exciting era to date.

    "Magic Man is the ultimate form of oneself, having gone through different peaks and valleys of life to arrive at the most authentic version," Wang said of the record. "Everyone is able to become their own form of Magic Man."

    Alongside the release of the record, Wang also shared the video for closing track, Blue, which sees him falling into the dreamlike nature of the record itself as the tender, more reflective track unfolds itself and caps off what is already an acclaimed solo album.
