Yesterday (March 30th) at the Melia Ha Noi Hotel, Hoang Thuy Linh officially introduced her debut  album called “Hoang Thuy Linh Vol. 1” to the public,  as promised.

And as one of the few singers that were actually on time when it comes to album releases, we think she deserves a big round of snaps.

Onto the product itself, well….we haven’t listened to the album yet so beats us. However, judging the MV, alone: the song’s catchy, the dancing’s catchy, the voice suits this genre, and overall, we like this video more than Ho Ngoc Ha’s…simply because there were more than just lights and twitching. What do you guys think?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

During the press conference, Hoang Thuy Linh revealed that it took her 3 years to think and plan out this project while it took her another 8 months to actually work on and finish it.

The album contains a total of 11 tracks: 5 from musician Luu Thien Huong including the first single “Nhip Dap Giac Mo”, 1 from Dong Nhi called “Listen Boy”, and others from Nguyen Duc Cuong which includes “Rung Dong”.

Musician Luu Thien Huong commented on Linh’s efforts while working with her on the album, “I initially felt  uneasy when I heard she wanted to sing my songs. Like many already know, I don’t compose mainstream music so honestly, they aren’t easy to sing. Because of that, I only gave her one song to try. After hearing her sing, I was  taken aback. It was completely different from what she has sung before. Especially her voice. I share with Linh the same personality in music. We like the ‘new and modern’ but still very ‘woman’ approach. I believe she’ll achieve anything she wants.”
