Launched on February 14, the music video, which the singer described it as a Valentine’s present for his fans, soon attracted six million views within a day, a new record since his another hit Lac Troi (Lost) recently saw four million views on its release day.

The hit also overtook Shape of You by Ed Sheeran on within 30 hours of its release.

The number of views are still rising on Youtube, with over 16 million as of early February 16;  while the song name is becoming the most-searched keyword on Google Vietnam.

The video which features a fusion of pop and R&B includes a romantic young couple, are also attracting viewers from outside Vietnam who expressed their love and support for Son Tung M-TP who some people hope could be the first Vietnamese young singer to make a step on international stage.

Son Tung M-TP has just become the first Vietnamese singer to be awarded the YouTube Gold Play Button, a prize which certifies channels with at least one million subscribers.

The prize was given in early January when the 23-year-old singer’s channel on the video-sharing site had reached over one million subscribers and more than 294 million views.

Son Tung’s success, however, has often been overshadowed by accusations of plagiarism, with a number of his songs generously described as having striking similarities to South Korean, US and UK pop songs and a style denounced as a mimic of South Korean star G-Dragon.

The song Chung Ta Khong Thuoc Ve Nhau (We Don’t Belong To Each Other) was accused of plagiarising Charlie Puth's hit, the Heyder Remix of We Don't Talk Anymore.

Both the song and the clip have polarised audiences. The video is said to be a copy of South Korean singer G-Dragon's Sober video or the Eureka video rapper Zico. The music also faces criticism for sounding a lot like Charlie Puth's We Don't Talk Anymore.
