Global megastar Jackson Wang and production powerhouse Internet Money have released “Drive You Home”, via 88rising, distributed by 12Tone Music LLC. Listen HERE.
To complement the single, Jackson has also released the music video to “Drive You Home,” which Jackson scripted, directed, and produced himself alongside Mamesjao. Watch HERE.
Featuring production from David Stewart (BTS – “Dynamite”) and Nick Mira (Juice Wrld – “Lucid Dreams”, Lil Tecca – “Ransom”, Internet Money & Gunna ft. Don Toliver & Nav – “Lemonade”), “Drive You Home” tells a heartbreaking, emotional story of a long night told in reverse.
Listeners will notice that “Drive You Home” samples and interpolates the iconic 1984 single “Drive” from the legendary new wave band The Cars. The 80s-inspired love song blends sentimental guitar-driven melodies with booming hip-hop percussion and features Jackson’s most affecting and confident vocal performance to-date.
Speaking on “Drive You Home,” Jackson says the song revolves around the idea of, “When I’m not here, who is going to drive you home?” His approach to the visual was also abstract. “I’ve always explained my music videos, the backstory and the plot, to my audiences. But with this visual, 10 people can watch it and have 10 different feelings. I can’t wait for the fans to interpret it.”
“Drive You Home” follows the global success of Jackson’s hit single, “LMLY”. To date, “LMLY” has garnered over 60M streams, debuted at #1 on Apple Music Charts (All Genres, 27 Markets), lived at #40 on Global Viral Charts on Spotify, and received over 15M views on Official Music Video (1.2M views in first 24 hours). Both “LMLY” and “Drive You Home” will ladder up to Jackson’s highly-anticipated forthcoming sophomore album, expected this fall.
In Fall of 2019, Jackson released his critically acclaimed debut solo album, MIRRORS, via Western and 6th. ‘MIRRORS’, debuted at #32 on the Billboard 200, becoming the highest-charting solo artist debut from China, and collectively reached #1 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart, #2 on the Rap Album Sales Chart, #3 on the Digital Albums Chart, #4 on the Top Current Albums Chart and #4 Top Album Sales Chart.
In addition to collaborating with global artists such as Major Lazer, Swae Lee, GoldLink and Gucci Mane, Jackson has amassed a devoted following that exceeds 64 Million fans across social platforms.
Jackson has also pierced the cultural zeitgeist as the face of global brands such as Fendi, Alibaba, Cartier, Armani Beauty, Rayban, L’Oreal, Pepsi, and BMW in China, and recently launched his own TEAM WANG streetwear line.
