Jackson Wang warms up for a new project with Chinese artists ‘PanThePack’

Share

PanThePack is a joint collaboration between Jackson Wang and three other Chinese artists.

Jackson Wang had begun his solo efforts well before the rest of his band. GOT7 fans are witnessing back-to-back solo projects from virtually all of the group’s members, with Youngjae, the group’s sunlight, remaining the only member who hasn’t released new music in 2021.

Jackson wowed fans with his current single, Drive You Home, and demonstrated his acting chops while performing it live in Shanghai last week.

Jackson and Mark Tuan astounded Ahgases last week when word surfaced of his work with artist Bibi on the OST for Marvel’s Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. GOT7’s leader, Jay B, is also slated to release his debut solo mini-album on August 27, 2020, at 6 p.m. KST (5 a.m. ET), which will be even more overwhelming for fans who miss the lads.

The unveiling of PanThePack

More good news comes in the form of Jackson’s participation in the project dubbed PanThePack, in which he will be joined by three other musicians. This collaboration will be released under Jackson’s Team Wang label, and it has been in the works since or before April 2021. The identities of the three musicians that will collaborate with Jackson have been released.

On August 25, Jackson released a statement introducing the artists collaborating with him on this project. Karencici, an American Chinese singer, J.Sheon, a Taiwanese rapper and producer, and ICE, a Beijing-based rapper, are all scheduled to collaborate with Jackson on this project.

Teaser

Jackson announced the impending project in a post on his Instagram account today. Teaser films and photos of the four members have been released. Jackson’s fans are well aware of his fondness for Apple’s Memoji for his Instagram postings.

Jackson posted a picture of all four artists with their personalized faces in the shape of memojis and a panda face in the center, with Pan The Pack written in a pink, quirky typeface.

The word pan means innovative, and the pack means community and solidarity. These musicians hope to advance and promote Chinese music on a worldwide scale with this endeavor. The project’s specifics have yet to be released, but we know that Jackson will have a song called DNA, while ICE will have a song called Transmit.

Each of the four members is assigned a color that corresponds to their name. ICE has blue, Karencici has pink, and J.Sheon has yellow. Jackson has red, ICE has blue, Karencici has pink, and J.Sheon has yellow. Karencici’s and J.Sheon’s song titles have yet to be disclosed.
