Three out of six videos leading the list of most trending music videos on YouTube in Vietnam are three wedding-themed songs, which boast millions of views.

Of the three songs, "Yeu La Cuoi" (Love Is Getting Married) by singer Phat Ho X2X is the second most trending MV in Vietnam, right behind South Korea singer Lisa’s "Lalisa".

"Cuoi Thoi" (Let’s Get Married) by singers Masew, Masiu, B Ray, and TAP, is in third position after earning more than seven million views, while "Thuong Nhau Toi Ben" (Love Each Other A Lot) by Nal is the sixth most trending this week, with more than 10 million views.

Nal, a 24-year-old from southern Dong Thap Province, is one of the most successful singers of wedding-themed songs in the last few months. He previously released a song with a similar topic named "Roi Toi Luon" (Oh Go Ahead), attracting more than 71 views on YouTube.

On short-video platform TikTok, "Roi Toi Luon" has appeared in more than 500,000 videos, and is still on trend.

Wedding music with catchy melodies and lyrics that are familiar to people in Mekong Delta area has always been popular among Vietnamese netizens. But in the last few months, with local artists not releasing new MVs due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, these songs have regained the spotlight.

Besides, many music lovers said they have replayed these wedding songs many times while staying home to help them get rid of the pandemic and lockdown blues.

"My family replays these songs every day because their melodies and lyrics are fun and make people feel better amid this lockdown," said Tran Thanh Quy, a white-collar worker in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 10.

Many localities have been under lockdown at various levels since the fourth outbreak hit the country in late April, infecting more than 766,000 people.
