HCM CITY — Young singers have released new MVs on YouTube this summer to attract more fans via social media to their music amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pop singer Thanh Đạt made his debut with the MV Yeu Người Đến Sau (Falling in Love with Another Girl), a ballad about love and betrayal.
The song was composed by young musician and mixer Thien Dũng, who has had many hits performed by pop idols such as Bảo Anh and Hồ Quang Hiếu.
Yeu Người Đến Sau has attracted more than 600,000 views on YouTube. The MV includes beautiful images of Ha Noi.
“I used YouTube as the best and quickest way to introduce my music to audiences,” said Đạt.
The singer hopes his first MV will rock young fans, especially those living in HCM City who have been staying at home during the lockdown period starting on July 9 under Directive 16.
“Music will keep us alive,” added the 21-year-old.
Another newcomer is Le Phan, known as Wren Evans. His first MV, Thích Em Hơi Nhiều (Love U), has attracted 7.7 million views.
He began writing songs on piano when he was a child. He and his two friends started a band called Jeune Homme when they were at school.
He is fluent in English, Spanish and Frech.
Although young singers are increasingly popular, they are still working hard to achieve their dreams to develop their music. Through their work, fans can learn that singers need more than an attractive appearance and dancing skills.
Famous singer-songwriter Kay Trần decided to return to music with his new MV called Nắm Đoi Ban Tay (Holding Hands) after two years away from the studio.
He told local media he took a break from music because he "wanted to find a new source of passion".
“My goal is to develop my singing in a professional manner," the 27-year-old said.
"Although I have become famous, I’ve always tried to find a way to improve,” he added.
To guarantee his new production, Nắm Đoi Ban Tay, Kay Trần worked with pop star Sơn Tung-MTP in the studio. The two singers also wrote the song’s lyrics together.
Nắm Đoi Ban Tay is a love song. It was released on July 12 and reached the top 1 on YouTube Vietnam 12 hours after uploading.
The MV has attracted more than 12.8 million views.
“Kay Trần is smart because he knows the brandname Sơn Tung-MTP will be a guaratee for his success. His exclusive contract with MTP Talent, a music agency owned by the pop star, is a good deal,” said Trần Thị Kim Chi, a fan of Sơn Tung-MTP.
Kay Trần, whose real name is Trần Anh Khoa, began his career in 2014 after entering a music contest in Ha Noi.
He worked as a singer, dancer and music editor for entertainment agencies and studios in HCM City before entering the MTP Talent last year. — VNS
