In commemoration of International Women’s Day 2023, two Vietnamese-heritage artists, Thuy and Min, released a smashing remix of Thuy’s hit single “Girls Like Me Don’t Cry”. While it isn’t a classic feminist anthem, the lyrics are symbolic of women empowerment and the brave front many women put on to survive in our world.
“It’s amazing to see how a song about womanhood and being in tune with our emotions can be so relatable to so many people. When I went to Vietnam in November, I quickly realized how much the song resonated with my fans over there. It was only right to call on my favorite Vietnamese artist, Min, to hop on the remix. I’m already such a fan of hers so for her to be on the remix is a dream come true for me. It’s incredible to be able to bridge the gap between two Vietnamese women and show how united we all are,” says Thuy.
The remix features V-pop singer and dancer, Min, who sings a verse in her native language Vietnamese. This remix marks Thuy’s first international collaboration in Vietnamese.
Thuy, who is a Vietnamese-American artist, explained that she loves GLMDC (girls like me don’t cry) for what it represents.
Min shared that she was already a fan of Thuy’s ‘Universe’, and ‘Girls Like Me Don’t Cry’ before being invited to collaborate on thuy’s remix project.
“I thought it would be great to be able to contribute to this remix. I hope that we will be able to collaborate more in the future. For example, it would be so amazing to work on a brand-new song together. That’d be awesome <3 Love you Thuy!”
Thuy performed for the first time in Singapore at the Alex Blake Charlie Sessions in February 2023, an all female-fronted festival, to glowing reviews.
In a review, NME praised Thuy’s set as “easily one of the most enjoyable of the night thanks to her powerful voice (those runs!) and easy California charm”.
Thuy and Min also shot a music video in Singapore for their remix colab, which will be released on Friday, 10 March, 2023.
Thuy dropped her EP, ‘Girls Like Me Don’t Cry’ in 2022. The 7-track record is an ode to love of all sorts, from self-love to relationships and what it means to experience all of its trials and tribulations.
The EP’s lead single‘Girls Like Me Don’t Cry’ has been used in over 14,000 organic videos on TikTok and growing. On the heels of the EP’s success, Thuy is gearing up for her upcoming sold-out
The 31-year old has since amassed over 150 million global streams across her catalogue and garnered support from premier international publications including Billboard, Paper and Harper’s Bazaar.
Thuy was also selected as Spotify’s September ambassador for EQUAL, a program honouring female game changes across the industry and fostering equity for women in music, and was a member of YouTube Music Foundry Class of 2022. She has also recently been named Vevo’s DSCVR Artist to Watch 2023.
Min on the other hand, began her music career as a dancer and has since transitioned to become one of Vietnam’s beloved pop idols.
