Popular musician Jackson Wang, who is known to create music in English, Korean and Chinese is kicking off 2021 on a great note. Coming from the popular K-pop group GOT7, the 26-year-old musician has dropped his first single of this year titled 'Alone'.
Released through Jackson's own label, Team Wang, the all Chinese track is composed and written by Jackson. He also took part in the production and the arrangement of the song. Showcasing Jackson's signature vocals, the hip-hop and R&B-inspired single is a reflection of his journey as an artist.
