Sơn Tùng M-TP returned to Vietnamese music-loving audiences with a product 100% in English titled “There Is No One At All” on April 28th, which is different from most of Sơn Tùng M-TP’s previous products in terms of language, images, content, and messages.
For the artist, daring to be creative and challenging themselves in new things is a welcome endeavor. With “There Is No One At All”, Son Tung did not hide his ambition to conquer the international market while singing in English and setting up his own release time in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Seoul.

However, after being claimed to carry many violent scenes and end up with a negative image, the song and its music video were removed from YouTube and other platforms. Sơn Tùng M-TP apologized for bringing such a bad influence, and not to disappoint his fans. On July 5th, Sơn Tùng M-TP released another version of “There’s No One At All” on the official YouTube channel after the old version was removed.
The new version still follows the hip-hop and rock genre but is combined with the harmonious sounds of the piano throughout the song. The MV is the image of a lonely guy playing the piano and singing in the middle of the beach. The white outfit and the guitar stand out on the golden sand, but he is all alone with no one around.
The chorus is replayed by “I have no one by my side”, emphasizing his loneliness, and at the end of the song, this message was highlighted by a Vietnamese line “Anh không cần em đâu” (I don’t need you anymore). It states that Sơn Tùng M-TP moves the content from the story of an isolated boy growing up in a negative environment, suffering a lot of pain and tragedy to a lonely guy in love. He feels lonely and lost in a large world where there is no one by his side.
No matter what happens, he would like to prove that his love for music and fans will never end. And no matter what, he will always receive love and support from the audience.
