The song is currently ranked second with over five million views, behind Shut Down by Black Pink.

The clip is shot as if it were a live session, with the rapper singing live with a band and fellow singer, Thanh Bui.

It introduces viewers to the singer’s nostalgic appearance in old-fashioned clothes and long hair that was popular in the 1980s and the meaningful message of love she conveys.

The song depicts a person who is always trying to hide their emotions and expressions. However, when he meets a girl he falls in love with, he becomes “a lousy actor” who fails to hide his true feelings.

Viewers are surprised when the singers and musicians are covered in watercolors, which a girl paints in the distance. The paintings continue to appear and overlap until the girl’s silhouette becomes a painting for the rapper to contemplate.

The music video idea for the song represents the creative side of Den Vau and the production team.

“At first we intended to make a video of a normal concert, but then we decided on the second concept – to turn all the characters into a picture painted by a girl standing in the distance”, says the artist .

“In love, one person’s appearance will bring a lot of color to the other’s life, making it more beautiful and interesting. In the MV, emotional paintings are precious things to cherish. When you meet someone , there will be moments like a beautiful painting to be treasured in memory.”

Dien Vien Toi’s video received many positive comments from Vietnamese rap enthusiasts.

“Den Vau does not abuse English like many other Vietnamese rappers. Every native language word used in his lyrics has a diverse and interesting meaning that lets listeners immediately understand the content. The more they listen to the songs , the deeper they understand their meaning. Old-fashioned, understated – Den Vau’s simple music still exists like a smoldering fire that cannot be extinguished. Listening to his music, we can see the good things in the ordinary things of life, find the simple but extremely precious values ​​and realizing the rhythmic sounds that constantly resonate in our souls,” commented Minh La Tree.

According to another Youtube user, Ghien Mix, the rapper’s musical product has reached the artistic level both audio and visual thanks to the artist’s full investment. The lyrics are like a poem with layers of meaning.

“He is truly a true Vietnamese showbiz artist,” he added.
