I like Chi Pu, but I’m not so sure she has what it takes to be a singer. TỪ HÔM NAY (Feel Like Ooh) had the potential to be a pretty good Vpop MV. The production value is there, but ultimately, Chi Pu couldn’t seal the deal. Her singing ability is far too weak to make this song work.
I agree that her last song Fighting Fighting was better, but even then, Chi Pu showed limited singing ability. In situations like this, I don’t know what I should do. I like Chi Pu, but I think her singing is hot garbage. I want to tell people about cool new Vpop MVs to check out, but I can’t in good conscience promote something that I think is subpar. I rather talk about stuff that I like and not stuff that I don’t like. How am I suppose to convince others to listen to Vpop if I’m trashing it all the time, right?
If Chi Pu wants to be a singer, then she has to be at least somewhat good at it. It takes work to be a professional at your craft. Therefore, I can see why some people would resent Chi Pu for putting out this subpar MV. If you are going to do something, then you have to do it well. Else, you risk making a mockery of the situation and unknowingly disrespecting the entire industry. It’s kind of like McGregor trying to pretend he can go toe-to-toe with Mayweather. It’s a straight-up slap in the face to all professional boxers and to the sport of boxing as a whole. If Chi Pu wants to enter the professional ring of Vpop, then she needs to be able to hold her own. Right now, she’s looking like a total amateur here.
