Jackson Wang recently wrapped up his first solo set at Coachella 2023 weekend one.
The Hong Kong-born singer, who is also a member of the K-pop boyband GOT7, kicked off his set with songs from his sophomore studio album ‘Magic Man’.
Wang then surprised the audience by bringing out Ciara, who took over the stage with a medley of Missy Elliot’s ‘Lose Control’, as well as her original songs ‘Level Up’ and ‘Goodies’.
Following the medley, Wang joined Ciara to perform ‘1, 2, Step’, before transitioning into a remix of XG‘s viral TikTok hit ‘Left Right’. Later, the pair hyped up the audience during the chorus as the music video for ‘Left Right’ played on the screen behind them.

Wang and Ciara then wrapped things up with what appeared to be a new song. “When you push up on me, oh, oh, oh / Take it slow for me, baby, go slow / You know I like it when you takin’ control / Take it slow for me, baby, go slow,” they sang.
“I just wanna say, thank you so much. You inspired me. You inspired everybody here tonight,” Wang told Ciara as they wrapped up their collaboration. “On behalf for everybody, I wanna thank you, we wanna thank you for who you are, and thank you for being such a big part of our lives. We’re too blessed to have you.”
