Got7 member Jackson Wang, 25, has returned with “100 Ways,” a new single being distributed by Asian music powerhouse 88rising. The Hong Kong singer, rapper and dancer is straight off the back of releasing his solo debut album “MIRRORS,” which was released by his own label Team Wang and Western and 6th on October 25, 2019.

Team Wang is partnering with 88rising on global projects. To complement “100 Ways,” Wang has also dropped the music video for “100 Ways,” which was directed by longtime collaborator Daniel Cloud Campos who has worked with Zedd, Paramore, and Panic! at the Disco.

The video depicts Wang as a fearless warrior on a journey to reunite with his beloved in the face of adversity. It pairs Cloud’s breathtaking, operatic visuals with the Got7 member’s masterful dance choreography, performed alongside world-renowned dance crew the Kinjaz.

“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,” Wang said. “(These are) time and love.”

“100 Ways” is the first new music released by Wang since “MIRRORS.” Cementing Wang as a global superstar, the album today boasts more than 160 million streams worldwide and collectively received number 1 Independent Albums, number 2 Rap Album Sales, number 3 Digital Albums, number 4 Top Current Albums and number 4 Top Album Sales on the charts.

In 2019, Wang was busy having also teamed up with Stephanie Poetri for “I Love You 3000 II,” which garnered more than 131 million streams worldwide, and again with 88rising and Joji for “Walking” featuring Swae Lee and Major Lazer off the “Head in the Clouds II” album, which earned more than 70 million streams worldwide and number 39 spot in Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 Chart – Radio. This proves everything that Wang touches is a hit.

Other chart topping singles that display Wang’s writing, composition and arrangement ability include “Different Game” featuring Gucci Mane, which reached #1 on the US iTunes Hip-hop/Rap Chart, “Fendiman,” which transcended both musical and cultural heights as the first record from a Chinese artist to chart number 1 on the U.S. iTunes Single Chart and Pop Chart, and “Papillon”, which quickly topped Billboard China’s V Chart and landed a number 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, Wang’s single “Okay” landed the number 1 spot on the iTunes Chart in four countries and made him the fastest Chinese artist to reach 10 million views on VEVO.
