Jackson Wang's new single is finally here!
The hot new track, "Bullet To The Heart", is entirely sung in English and evokes the cyclical emotions of a romantic breakup, although Wang also offers another explanation.
"A perspective that I am trying to portray is that when your passion and dedication to something are so strong, they can hold a large amount of power over you," he said, according to Korean news website koreaboo. "So powerful that you are willing to repeat this endless cycle, willing to accept the torture. I believe we are able to endure and accomplish anything because love overcomes everything."
In the music video, Wang is portrayed being in the grasp of a mysterious woman dressed in black (who very much resembles Enchantress from Suicide Squad), and is helplessly manipulated by her.
"Devil in a black dress/They must've kicked you out of the heaven," he soulfully describes her in the opening. "I wish I knew you were an actress/I fell in love with your impression."
The feeling of emotional hurt is a theme that runs through his lyrics as well, and can be seen the catchy chorus.
"I fell for a stranger/With one in the chamber/Who left me for dead/And with a scar on my heart," he sings.
Bullet To The Heart marks Wang's first solo album outside of China, and the support has been immense. In just over a few hours, the music video has already garnered over 390,000 views on YouTube.
Wang is one of the most popular Chinese K-pop artists right now, and has been tapped by various luxury brands to front their campaigns, including Fendi, Cartier and Girogio Armani beauty to name a few.
He debuted in 2014 as part of K-pop boy band GOT7 and is now pursuing solo activities.
