Previously, Văn Mai Hương made the fans curious when revealing the image of the marriage certificate. Many people thought that Văn Mai Hương would prepare to start a new life with her fiancé. After all, fans can realize that this is just an image in the MV, not Văn Mai Hương sealing the love with her fiancé.
On the evening of October 21st, singer Văn Mai Hương officially revealed a new music product titled “Nghe Nói Anh Sắp Kết Hôn.” In the 45-second teaser, Văn Mai Hương attracted attention when she transformed into a beautiful, sexy and confident bride. Not stopping there, there were also scenes of the joyful bride and her significant other with her marriage certificate and glamorous wedding dress.
Regarding the new product, Văn Mai Hương revealed the title song “Nghe Nói Anh Sắp Kết Hôn” which was composed by Hứa Kim Tuyền – the composer of the hit “Cầu Hôn” that made its debut in early 2019. This project also marked the cooperation with singer Bùi Anh Tuấn and the presence of guests such as Cao Xuân Tài and Đồng Ánh Quỳnh.
With this project, Văn Mai Hương boldly wrote the script herself for the music video. “Nghe Nói Anh Sắp Kết Hôn” describes the unfinished love story of a couple who were very happy together. But because of family, social and personal stereotypes, they had to regretfully part ways. However, the story and the feeling of regret does not stop there as the lesbian couple meet again on a special occasion.
Once again cooperating with Hứa Kim Tuyền, the story he told this time frankly showed that this was a sad story, without using Huong’s voice for reference. The phrase “Heard that you are getting married” can be a phrase that originated for young people like “Do you love me / Do you want to come home with me?”. Hứa Kim Tuyền is not really a deep person in words, but the things he wrote are simple, sincere and not too elaborate. The message conveyed by Hưa Kim Tuyền is extremely humane: “Wish you peace / Love petals”. The positive emanating from the song is a very bright highlight.
Compliments for the beautiful voice of Văn Mai Hương is never enough. The sounds in this piece are used even more moderately than “Cầu Hôn“: only the piano and drum sounds are the main background, plus having to split the attention for Bùi Anh Tuấn, but Văn Mai Hương still shines in her parts, never losing the steadiness of her voice that is both technical and experienced. The last segment, during Bùi Anh Tuấn’s singing part, she knew how to push the climax and help exaggerate Tuấn’s voice. There are segments where Văn Mai Hương sang extremely subtle when stroking very lightly on the bridge, obscuring the unsuccessful belt of Bùi Anh Tuấn, then she pushed the climax to go straight to the end.
However, “Nghe Nói Anh Sắp Kết Hôn” is still an important product because it clearly marks the direction of an artist who still has a lot of potential like Văn Mai Hương. Pursuing ballads is not interesting, but Huong’s storytelling does not make listeners bored. Văn Mai Hương’s singing in “Nge Nói Anh Sắp Kết Hôn”, even in “Cầu Hôn”, shows that this girl still has a lot of things to explore. Just keep up the interesting and subtle style and Văn Mai Hương absolutely can go a lot further.
