After a long time waiting, Phuong Ly finally makes a comeback to Vpop 2019 with a beautiful music video (MV). On January 9th, Phuong Ly released a new song titled “Anh là ai” (Who are you) to mark her comeback after a long hiatus.
After 7-days of release, the song reached over 7 million views and among top 5 most-viewed videos on YouTube in Vietnam. (Source: Youtube)
It is a pop and R&B song composed by Kien Tran and produced by JustaTee. Phuong Ly posted a demo version of this song on her YouTube channel over one year ago. However, until now, her fans have a chance to completely enjoy the whole song. In the teaser that she released two days before the official MV, Phuong Ly said sorry to her fans for making them to wait for long time through a funny message at the end “ Xin lỗi … hơi lâu” (Sorry … quite long time)

The MV lasts nearly 5 minutes, Phuong Ly and her team use the aspect ratio 16:9 once again, which is similar to “Mặt trời của em” (My Sunshine), her previous song released one year ago. However, in comparison with Mat troi cua em, the MV “Anh la ai” was mostly shot outside and focused to flatter her facial angles and emotional expressions.

The special thing is that there is no other guy appearing in this MV, Phuong Ly just does it on her own, including planting flowers, playing in room and wandering alone in the woods and on the prairie. This makes fans wonder who the guy is giving her flowers every day at 08:08 AM.
Does “Anh là ai” link to JustaTee’s “Thằng điên” (Crazy Man)?
As soon as the MV was launched, fans quickly recognized that there is a link between “Anh là ai” (ALA) and Justa Tee’s “Thằng điên” (TD) in which Phuong Ly is one of the main characters. On social media, fans believe that “ALA” is the first part of “TD”. A user comments: “after watching this (Anh la ai) MV, I think that ALA is the first part of TD because of two details: the girl was given flowers and the short-hair girl at the end. At the opening of this video, the girl receives flowers every day from an important person, making her happy. However, after that, she is always disappointed deep in a musing state because this does not last long. At the opening of MV “TD”, there is a short hair girl who gives the crazy man flowers,
and their love – love of two crazy people started from that.
Others argue that “It is definitely the second part of MV Thang Dien because in Thang Dien, the girl is taken to a hospital and she leaves the crazy man alone. She surmised that she had a beautiful memory with someone, and she always asks herself “Who is he?”. This song is a message to a guy she loves but cannot remember who he is. “Who are you” – “Crazy man”.

In conclusion, no matter if “ALA” is the first or second part, it could become a big hit in the near future. ALA is a Vpop song that you must hear in the new year.
