Besides that, after its release, this Vpop MV had the highest number of searches on Google Vietnam (according to Google Trends, the number of searches of “Em Gì Ơi” hit the peak at more than 50,000 searches). In this song, K-ICM hadn’t used some materials like other songs such as folk materials of ethnic musical instruments, instead, he used electronic guitar and trumpet. He said that to have the most satisfactory song like “Em Gì Ơi”, two of them went to the studio and recorded this song five times before releasing it. In addition, to make this MV, they had four hard-working days to film it. They moved from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) to Da Lat City (Lam Dong Province) and Ninh Thuan Province to shoot the MV.
With the simple lyrics written by Jack, it’s not hard for the song to touch the listeners’ hearts. Therefore, this song quickly became popular and well recognized by many people. In this MV, you can see the optimistic and cheerful spirit of two “young adults” who took some time off, temporarily away from the crowded city and drop their souls on a journey to somewhere peaceful without the city life noise and bustle.
