Three of the six videos topped the list of trending music videos on YouTube in Vietnam are three wedding-themed songs, which have millions of views.
Of the three songs, “Yeu La Cuoi” (Love Is Getting Married) by singer Phat Ho X2X is the second trending MV in Vietnam, just behind “Lalisa” by South Korean singer Lisa.
“Cuoi Thoi” (Let’s Get Married) by singers Masew, Masiu, B Ray and TAP, is in third place after gaining more than seven million views, while “Thuong Nhau Toi Ben” (Love Each Other A Lot) by Nal is the sixth trending trend this week, with over 10 million views.
Nal, 24, from southern Dong Thap province, has been one of the most successful singers of wedding-themed songs in recent months. He previously released a song on a similar topic titled âRoi Toi Luonâ (Oh Go Ahead), garnering over 71 views on YouTube.

On the short video platform TikTok, “Roi Toi Luon” has appeared in over 500,000 videos and is still trending.
Wedding music with catchy melodies and lyrics familiar to the people of the Mekong Delta has always been popular among Vietnamese internet users. But in recent months, with local artists not releasing new MVs due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, these songs have regained center stage.
Additionally, many music lovers have said they have replayed these wedding songs repeatedly while staying at home to help them get rid of the pandemic and lockdown blues.
âMy family plays these songs back every day because their melodies and lyrics are fun and help people feel better in the midst of this lockdown,â said Tran Thanh Quy, a white collar worker from Ho Chi Minh District 10. City.
Many localities have been stranded at different levels since the fourth epidemic struck the country at the end of April, infecting more than 766,000 people.
