Partway through the 2020 League of Legends Pro League Summer Split, former World Champion AD Carry, Yu "JackeyLove" Wen-Bo, partnered with charity program, One Foundation, to release a song for a project called LPL Cares. The song is called "Wish" (or "Pray" depending on the translation) and sounds somewhat like if a boy band wrote a Christmas song, which, of course, fits well with the song title. LPL Cares benefits children in need, and the lyrics for JackeyLove's song are essentially prayers for a better future for those children.
Along with the song, which was released on Chinese music streaming platform, y.qq, the LPL Players Weibo released a behind the scenes video, showing JackeyLove's journey to the studio and his recording of the song.
This isn't the only extracurricular activity JKL has been up to this year, releasing a shampoo commercial for L'Oréal between the end of the regular season and his playoffs run.
JackeyLove is currently playing for Top Esports, and represents his team in his partnership with One Foundation. Top Esports has all but qualified for Worlds, holding the most championship points in the LPL - tied with JD Gaming - and needing to win only one more series to qualify. Furthermore, they have three possible ways to make it, giving them three chances at a series win to move on to the international stage.
TES plays their first playoff match this weekend after receiving two byes thanks to their dominance throughout 2020 where they face off against Suning for a shot at making it to the LPL Summer Finals against the victor of LGD and JDG. JackeyLove and Hung "Karsa" Hao-Hsuan look to secure their ticket back to Worlds, bringing along their teammates for their Worlds - and international - debut.
Though you have to be in China with a y.qq membership to listen to Jackeylove's "Pray" online, you can listen to the full song below.
