In the time of crisis due to the evolving development of the Covid-19, most Vietnamese artists put a stop to producing amusing music videos but make songs that encourage people to collectively stave off the Covid-19.
Conversely, Hoàng Thùy Linh went against the crowd by officially releasing the newly dynamic music video “Kẻ Cắp Gặp Bà Già”.
The song ‘Kẻ Cắp Gặp Bà Già” is rather similar to the previous hit of Hoàng Thùy Linh “Duyên Âm”, which does not seem to be catchy at the beginning. Nevertheless, the more people listen to it, the more addicted they will be without knowing.
The music style of Hoàng Thùy Linh in the MV “Kẻ Cắp Gặp Bà Già”, or in the album Hoàng, in general, leans towards the popular folk with loads of professional, clever switch of notes along with the EDM background music. All together mixed with her limpid, sweet voice making it a perfect combination and bringing the exhilaration to listeners. Additionally, there is a huge contribution from Binz in the rap part levering the enigma and sexiness of the MV and lyrics itself.
The MV is considered to be of an elaborate event where the audiences are served with a myriad of flamboyant, colors, and other pattern clashes. It is clear to see that Hoàng Thùy Linh has a fantastic aesthetic through this subtle, clever use of vibrant colors in the MV.
Having said that, many comments showed that the MV’s content was too ambiguous to comprehend. That drew the popularity of the song down unexpectedly. Summarily, Hoàng Thùy Linh plays the role of a Queen, and the only man in the MV is the King. The two charming, gorgeous imperial maids are acted by Hậu Hoàng and Khánh Vân.
When the Queen is chewing betel, the King comes to ask her to play a folk game “Cờ Gánh” – A Vietnamese folk game indigenous to Quảng Nam. Both of them make a bet, if either of them loses a tile each time, the person has to hand over a maid to the other. Every round is depicted by a Hàng Trống well-known artwork.
