The music video, which has been creatively directed by Wang himself, narrates similar storyline as 'Blow' of forbidden romance in the supernatural themed set up where he is possessed by these powers and has to face off temptress but continues to be drawn by her presence. The choreography is a blend of acrobatics, smooth emotive dance moves especially the key point of Jackson playing the guitar riffs on a woman which was viral on the internet during Coachella set too. Talking about being drawn to his love, he croons, “I’m coming back to you / So I really hope that you don’t mind / I know you want me, too / Even though you’re not mine / You got that look in your eyes.” The guitar riffs with grunge-pop music, dark edgy sonically brings a new flavour to Jackson's music.

There's often been a theme of supernatural elements in Jackson Wang's videos and it comes from his love for 90s Hong Kong movies. Be it '100 Ways', and 'Pretty Please', he's moving onto a new era and this larger-than-life music videos are very much what Jackson Wang's evolution looks like.

Magic Man will drop sometime this year and if the reports are to be believed, it might drop in September 2022.
