According to Son Tung M-TP, Is It Truly Love has gentle and sweet lyrics like the heart of a boy who is immersed in love.

The hit comes fresh off the release of the music documentary SKY TOUR Movie about the young superstar.

Is It Truly Love was released on Son Tung M-TP’s 26th birthday, July 5.

"In this music video, I have really lived in the song with a lovely and innocent image of the age of 26 but like an 18-year-old boy," the singer shared.

After this video, the singer will prepare for another music project in 2020, his album Chúng Ta (Us). — VNS
