The MV, released in September, ranked No 1 on YouTube trending in Vietnam 16 hours after its release, with 8.2 million views. It has attracted more than 135.7 million views with 1.5 million comments on YouTube.

Jack became known in 2019 with hits like Hồng Nhan (Beauty), Sóng Gió (Upheavals), Bạc Phận (Misfortune) and Việt Nam Tôi (My Việt Nam), which were co-performed with young songwriter and singer K-ICM.

The songs’ MVs have attracted hundreds of millions of views on YouTube.

Jack and K-ICM were honoured by the Mnet Asian Music Awards as Best New Asian Artist Vietnam in 2019.

The duo broke up early last year, and both are building solo careers.

Jack’s previous MV, Being A Boy, released in March, ranked No 1 on trending on YouTube in Vietnam nine hours after its release, with 4.5 million views. The work has earned more than 145 million views. 

The song Being A Boy is written by Jack and mixed by music producer HOAPROX, whose composition appeared in the electronic music album Electric Asia Vol.2: The Best New Hits from Asia released by Billboard in 2018.

The song, a blend of pop and disco, is about the disappointment and sadness of a man who witnesses his lover’s wedding.

“I’m happy that my efforts have gained the love of my fans,” said the 23-year-old Jack.  VNS
