"’Cruel’ is a very special record for me. It really set the precedence for where the narrative of the album needed to go and sound,” said Wang. 

“'Cruel' is like a manifestation of the environments and hurdles we had to overcome at the time. Every time we felt we were getting close, something slips past us and it all felt so far away.”

Meanwhile, the “Magic Man” album follows Wang’s journey as he finds himself in an alternate reality, operating under the laws of mystery, temptation, and confusion. 

It is considered as the alter ego of Wang, transporting to various realities, each bound by its own set of rules. 

Earlier this year, the singer made an appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” showcasing his charming personality and inspiration behind the upcoming album. 

Wang made history at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival as the first-ever Chinese solo artist who performed on the Coachella main stage as part of 88rising’s ‘Head In The Clouds Forever’ set.

Wang and K-pop group Treasure are set to perform for their Pinoy fans Friday night in the concert dubbed as "K-pop Masterz," which will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
