K-pop star Jackson Wang performs latest single on James Corden’s late night show
The 27-year-old, who was recently featured in Forbes Asia's 30 Under 30 list, also plugged his upcoming second album, saying it will be "a very new sound".
GOT7 group member Jackson Wang appeared on the Late Late Show With James Corden on Wednesday (Apr 21) where he had a short interview with the host and also performed his newest single LMLY (Leave Me Loving You).
During the chat, the 27-year-old star told Corden that he was calling in from Beijing, where it was 6.30 in the morning. He also plugged his upcoming second solo English album, slated for August, by saying that it will feature “a very new sound and it’s something that people won’t expect from me”.
The chat was followed by a pre-recorded music video performance of the catchy pop tune.
Wang’s appearance on the Late Late Show comes just days after the Hong Kong-born singer was rumoured to be featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming Marvel superhero flick Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings.
Fans speculated that it was Wang's unreleased song on the trailer for the show and although it’s not exactly a confirmation, more fuel was added to the fire when the Instagram account for record label 88rising – which has worked with Wang – shared the trailer and tagged his account in the post.
He was also recently featured in Forbes Asia’s 30 Under 30 list.
Wang is a member of the Korean boyband GOT7 and earlier this year, the group left the JYP Entertainment label. However, in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar Korea, where he is featured, Wang reassured fans by saying that the band will continue and that nothing has changed. He also said that he might release an album in Korea this year.
It’s not the first time Wang has appeared on the Late Late Show; in 2019, he was in a segment where he and Corden taught each other about their cultures.
