HCM CITY — Transgender singer Hương Giang’s latest music video (MV) has attracted more than 18.6 million views on YouTube, with other hits gaining fame as well.
The MV, Tặng Anh Cho Cô Ấy, is a production between the singer who wrote the lyrics and Hứa Kim Tuyền, her partner, composer and producer.
Produced by the singer’s company Hương Giang Entertainment, Tặng Anh Cho Cô Ấy reached nearly 15.3 million viewers four days after its release on February 6.
The MV is about a love triangle.
The No1 trending on You Tube in Việt Nam in the second week of this month went to Hơn Cả Yêu (More Than Love), a love song by young singer Đức Phúc.
The MV, released on Valentine’s Day, has attracted over 19.3 million views. His song is a mix of Vietnamese music and K-pop.
Another MV, Có Như Không Có (Nothing) by young singer Hiền Hồ, is still a top hit after two months and a half of its release. It has attracted more than 19.2 million views.
“I wanted to impress my fans who have supported my career since I was just a nameless transgender woman who loved singing,” said 28-year-old Giang, winner of the 2018 Miss International Queen beauty pageant for transgender women hosted by Thailand.
Giang began her career after being in the top four of Vietnam Idol, the Vietnamese version of singing reality show American Idol in 2012.
Her first movie, Sắc Đẹp Dối Trá (The Drama Queen), is in cinemas and attracted more than 120,000 audiences on its first day on Valentine’s Day.
To complete her MV, Giang and her staff worked several days on recording and filming, and spent a lot of time with make-up, hair and costume designs.
Her hits Anh Ta Bỏ Em Rồi (He Left Me) and Anh Đang Ở Đâu Đấy (Where are You?) have attracted millions of young fans.
Another singer, Orange, is looking for a new idol. Her latest MV, Chân Ái (True Love), released on Monday has attracted 1.8 million viewers, following the MV by rapper B Ray.
Orange, whose real name is Khương Hoàn Mỹ, was winner of the Mnet Asian Music Awards’ Be New Asian Artist in Korea in October. She has worked hard in her career.
She began her professional career in HCM City in 2014, after performing in a TV reality show produced by HCM City Television. Her strong and emotional voice was a hit in the industry.
She performed and won the Hong Kong Asian – Pop Music Festival’s Asian Supernova Award 2019 after beating nine competitors from different countries.
“I hope audiences will see their youth in my music,” said the 24-year-old.
Chân Ái is a production by Orange and composer Châu Đăng Khoa. It features rap by Khói.
MVs by young singers, Đình Dũng and Minh Vương, are also hits.
While Dũng’s Sai Lầm Của Anh (My Mistake) has had 62 million views, Vương’s Em Ơi Lên Phố (Travelling with You) has reached 50 million views. Both MVs feature themes of women and love.
“Young singers have invested a lot in their MVs, and their works with 3D technology are like movies,” mixer Hải Nam of HCM City told Thanh Niên (Young People) newspaper. — VNS
