“What’s Your Name?” is a Hip-hop genre based on US-UK music style with the ear-catching and playful melody. Hoàng Tôn wants to focus on this genre in the future. The lyrics describe a love story of young, vibrant and hip people from first sight. The boy continuously asks for the name and phone number of the girl. He admires her appearance because she looks so beautiful and makes him crazy.

“What’s Your Name?” MV was filmed in both Germany and Viet Nam in a short period. The content of this MV was about the active images of Hoàng Tôn dancing and flirting with a beautiful girl. Also, some excerpts were of Ricky Star and Sony Tran dancing while rapping their lyrics.
Before Hoàng Tôn did cosmetic surgery and had some problems with his face in 2016 so it took him three years of silence to address the problems then come back with “What’s Your Name?”. He shared that this release not only marks his come back into Vpop but also the change in his music style. Those years are very valuable because it was the time he found out about himself then discovered a different way to follow his music career that is not the same as any artist. Instead of following the ballad genre that has been loved by netizens, he decided to concentrate on the active music styles that have been popular in the US and Europe.
Hoàng Tôn also promised that he would have some music projects in 2019 so his fans just need to wait and enjoy his next releases.
