Of course, when I wrote the melody, I defined what the content of the song was, the main sentence, and wrote the melody according to the emotions, based on the content of the ideas first, and then completed the lyrics.

When listening to Chinese music, too, I listen to the melody I like first, but I don’t understand the content. After that, I learned the content and became more and more interested in that song. So do foreigners who listen to Vietnamese music,” said the male musician.
