Time Magazine: The 5 Best New Songs of the Week (includes Jackson Wang's "100 Ways")

The 5 Best New Songs of the Week

"Jackson Wang, of K-pop group GOT7, is positioning himself as one of the category’s breakout solo stars; his last solo albumMirrorsbroke through on the Billboard charts, his media presence has been refreshingly open, helping him create a fandom all his own — and his new song “100 Ways” is a pulsing electronic track with minor-key flutes that gives him a distinctive sound, too. Wang sings in English about being “the only one that you need” (the “100 Ways” can be construed as exit strategies to disentangle from a less-worthy rival), but there’s a deeper story: Wang, who’s Chinese,has saidhis character in the song is taken from an ancient Chinese tale about a love that transcends this lifetime. His take, however, feels thoroughly modern." - Raisa Bruner, Time Magazine
