After debuting in South Korean boyband GOT7 in 2014, Jackson Wang (王嘉爾) has been unstoppable. Spreading his fame to China and across Asia, Jackson is now making waves in the United States as well.
Having released his new song “BLOW” in March, Jackson’s music video reached 21 million views on YouTube and topped music charts on iTunes.
In April, Jackson became the first Chinese artiste to perform at the Coachella music festival. The hashtag #JacksonWangCoachella was the number one trend on Twitter. With a huge popularity surge, he gained 300,000 new Instagram fans in just two weeks.
Jackson was also invited to appear on The Kelly Clarkson Show as a guest alongside Natasha Leggero and Jake Johnson. Eight hours after sharing a group photo on his Instagram, Jackson’s post garnered over 830,000 likes. The episode will be aired on May 4 in the United States.
While promoting his new album Magic Man, Jackson admitted that he has been suffering mental stress and feeling burnt out and lost because of overworking in the past nine years. In his new album, he embraced his true and raw self which was rarely seen before as a Kpop idol.
