Channeling the spirit of Post Malone, Hong Kong-bred K-pop star Jackson Wang issued his official solo debut, Mirrors. Yearning and emotive, Wang split the affair between midtempo trap beats and buoyant electronic waves, offering a cool and savvy contemporary 2010s blend with tracks such as "Bullet to the Heart" and "Faded." Guests GoldLink ("Bad Back") and Rich Brian ("Titanic") bolstered Mirrors with their production and rap input, respectively, while a Mandarin-language version of the 88Rising compilation track "I Love You 3000" helped bridge fan bases. Upon release, the short set debuted just outside the Top 30 on the Billboard 200.
