Jackson Wang - "Oxygen" M/V

Source: Jackson Wang

Well the visuals are pretty, that's for sure. Kinda weird he didn't sing along at any point.

I am not gonna watch this because I don't need the secondhand embarrassment in my life, but why is he making solo music still

The visuals were nice albeit a bit cheap looking in spots.

honestly this is better than i expected. it has less cringey lyrics than usual?
snowphone 12th-Apr-2019 05:11 pm (UTC)
no comment on the MV

Lol I thought the lyrics were still kinda cringy (by far his weakest spot) but the MV again had some nice visuals to put it in a positive light 😂
snowphone 12th-Apr-2019 05:18 pm (UTC)
definitely still cringey but i think they're an improvement on stuff like fendiman and papillon although that's really not saying much lol. the lyrics are naturally going to seem better if the theme is not "flexing on my haters", i think.

I liked the parts where he's 'soft' rapping, doesn't feel so tryhard anymore

What is this throwaway track? Faded was much better. By far his best solo track was Dawn of Us though
camouflagecat 12th-Apr-2019 05:20 pm (UTC)
Tbh I thought Faded had worse lyrics than this. But this has a nicer beat.
pepsi_twist9 12th-Apr-2019 05:21 pm (UTC)
I don't really recall what the lyrics were tbh. For me it's just this chorus I really hate lol

I took one for the team (y'all welcome) and i gotta say it's not as bad as I braced myself for, but like, I respectfully won't be listening to it twice lmao. It's like shaking a limp wrist.

That chunk of silence at the end was weirdly unsettling. And yeah, it would've made a better video if he forlonly lipped along to the 'live off you' refrain. But it's probably his best song so far, so progress?
daynr 12th-Apr-2019 05:40 pm (UTC)
it kind of sounds like something, an animal, dying? Why does he do this? Why does he think he needs to sell his body/face and trash his voice to make something interesting? It's still not unique.

Also, I can't really tell what he's saying and his English is very understandable, so what choice is this?

The beats are good, but the song could use better vocals, I’m not fully into how he’s using it here, it sabotages the song.

so jackson turned into a tree? inspired by apollo and daphne. #blessedliterarygenius
modestgoddess79 12th-Apr-2019 06:05 pm (UTC)
not really working for me
scionofawhisper 12th-Apr-2019 06:56 pm (UTC)
This might be his best? In part just cause it's the least try-hard, tho "I'm topless walking on the frontline with no ammo, I know I might get shot but I still go though". :x Does he gotta mention guns...
This really had potential I think, but just the way he sings/raps needs a lil' help.

Tbh, I'd rather listen to this again than the new BTS song, but that probably just says more about me than it does about the music, lmfao.
snowphone 13th-Apr-2019 01:38 pm (UTC)
LMAO the first line was too funny.
camouflagecat 13th-Apr-2019 01:50 pm (UTC)
I just thought, why did he have to mention he's topless...
snowphone 13th-Apr-2019 01:52 pm (UTC)
loool i think i couldn't hear what he was saying so i thought it was about driving in like a convertible with the top down based on the other lyrics?
camouflagecat 13th-Apr-2019 02:16 pm (UTC)
I don't see much relation between his lyrics tbh lol but the line I'm talking about he's clearly alluding he's shirtless at the front line of some war zone??
myungung 13th-Apr-2019 03:52 am (UTC)
I was expecting the shirt to go off towards the end, since the buttons were slowly unbuttoned along the MV. it feels a little low-budget and rushed, probably due to the previous MV being scrapped and him having to release something.

i'm just glad this track is not so tryhard, but still not a fan of his music. can Jackson stick to singing and variety instead
benihime99 14th-Apr-2019 11:35 am (UTC)
Hey, at least it's not as bad as his previous release (still tragic bit there's progression)
jaeslurpy 15th-Apr-2019 09:33 pm (UTC)
first listen and i actually kinda like it lmao. its not the best but i'm not hating.
