Singer and performer Jackson Wang releases his new single “Slow” with GRAMMY-Award winning artist Ciara. Jackson and Ciara join forces to showcase their unique talents and electrifying chemistry on this evocative and soul-stirring track, which blends their signature styles seamlessly with its raw emotion and undeniable groove. The track, co-written by Jackson himself, is produced by Grammy-Award winning DVLP (Eminem, J Balvin, Skrillex), Luyo and Tristian Hoogland (Joji, James Blake, Flume). Listen to “Slow” here. Watch the lyric video here.
Jackson who grew up on all things Ciara, has been a long-time admirer of the R&B icon. Jackson says, “Collaborating with Ciara was like catching lightning in a bottle. Her energy, passion, and creativity elevated this track to new heights, and her unwavering commitment to excellence inspired us to create something truly magical.”
Ciara says, “The first time I heard the song Slow, I knew wanted to be a part of it. I loved the melodies and the catchiness of the song. Jacksons voice and his energy are infectious, and I am excited to be part of his incredible journey!”
Jackson created a historic moment at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this past weekend as the first-ever Chinese solo artist to receive an official invitation from Coachella and perform his own set. He achieved a breakthrough moment enlisting Ciara for an surprise performance of their new single “Slow.” Leading up to his performance, Jackson trended No. 1 on Twitter’s worldwide trends with the hashtag #JacksonWangCoachella.
