GOT7‘s Jackson Wang has kicked off 2022 with a new song self-titled “王嘉尔 JACKSON WANG.”
Up until its release, he teased, telling Ahgases and Jackys that “Everything about my life” is “here in this song.” From that, we knew it would be his most personal song to date.
Now, the song has been released, and he said that if one is “curious about who i really am,” they could listen to it. He added a special thanks for the fans who have been with him on this journey and that he will continue to work to his fullest.
Im happy and blessed to have all of you being here in this adventure with me.
Im so blessed.
And i will always work to my fullest to be a better me.
To make you all proud.

On Instagram, he revealed that he wanted a song that was not filtered or commercial. It’s 100% just him.
“王嘉尔 JACKSON WANG” is an incredibly personal song to Jackson truly, as we expected. He served as lyricist, composer, producer, and director, so he had great creative control to honestly deliver his story through song.
We can see Jackson in the song not only lyrically but visually. The character design was done by CINHO and animated by GUMLAB while Jackson was over the creative process. So, we can see many Easter eggs, references, through the MV, to various parts of Jackson’s life, such as fencing, JYP Entertainment, TEAM WANG, PANTHEPACK, etc.
This moment with his parents depicted, though, is too precious. We can even see a direct reference to this iconic selfie!
