Ahgase rejoice, Jackson Wang has gifted us with a mixtape entitled LOST & FOUND and we’re sure it’s named after how we feel when any member of GOT7 releases new music: lost and then found. There’s always something brewing behind the scenes when it comes to Jackson Wang. We can all agree that the all-rounder GOT7 member and powerful soloist is a non-stop musical force, and his latest release only adds more proof.

According to the TEAM WANG Twitter post announcing the drop of LOST & FOUND, the tracks included are “old songs” “previously recorded by Jackson.” But the label didn’t stop there, they teased that they “are cooking something even bigger..” As to what that could be, they didn’t mention but we have a few ideas in mind…👀.
The entire mixtape is definitely worth a listen, you don’t need us to tell you that, but we’ve picked three of our favorites to share with you to get you started!
“I don’t wanna be lonely
Come and kiss me ‘till the morning comes”
His signature raspy vocals perfectly complement the almost 80s style beat and chorus. It’s a bit experimental, it’s addictive and it’s something only Jackson has the power to make us love.
“Next to your body save a place for me
A place for me”
A slow distorted melody opens up this groovy lo-fi track with clear R&B influences. Co-written by Jackson himself, ‘The Moment’ brings out the smooth and sensual side of himself.
“I’m dying to be your man until it’s over
At least ‘till I’m sober”
This easy-going track lightens our mood and has us pressing replay as soon as it’s over. This is the perfect song for summer love; the beachy melody and heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics have us all in our feels.
Jackson Wang At 88rising Festival
Jackson recently performed two of his singles at the 88rising Double Happiness Global Digital Festival on February 4th, 2022. The festival doubled as a fundraiser for the Asian Mental Health Collective which you can still make donations to through their YouTube channel.
His segment opens up with a brief interview where he says he plans to drop both a full English album and a full Chinese album this year (we’re holding our breath for a full GOT7 album too 😉.) You can stream his latest single ‘Jackson Wang’ here.
