Recently, Vietnamese netizens were extremely excited when they discovered that the melody of the song Drum Rice is very popular in China. This is considered the first time that Vietnamese folk music is famous throughout Chinese social networks.
Accordingly, at first, the Douyin account (local version of Tiktok) named Cciinnn attracted dozens of likes and comments when performing a dance to this song. Thanks to the fun melody, the handshake, and the easy-to-follow choreography, this exchange is widely shared. Since then, Chinese young people have known and constantly “trended” to release dancing clips to this song.
In particular, Cciinnn is also a major contributor to spreading the 2-minute song of rapper Phao, which is famous on this social networking platform.
As soon as this news was widely shared, Vietnamese netizens were surprised and happy when the song “Drum Rice” was suddenly popular in China. Some people think that Vietnamese music is very good, especially folk songs with melodies that are easy to put into practice, especially when remixed, they are more catchy. There are also a few popular songs in many other countries such as: Two Minutes More, Just Chill, “Butcher Dance”, “Hello, I’m a Western Girl…”.
“The song Drum is so good, the mix sounds good, it’s both familiar and strange, so it’s right that it’s hot”.
“The lesson is 2 minutes longer than it is, now it’s still popular, I hope the rice drum is also like that hihi”.
“I just saw a clip of an international student in Korea, he said the song 2 minutes was very popular there, but no one knew it was Vietnamese music.”
“It’s true that Vietnamese folk songs are number one, many songs, not just Drums,” some netizens commented.
Many people also think that with the strong development of video sharing social networks, Vietnamese music will have more opportunities to reach international level.
