Bao Thy caught stealing?

Stealing music that is… Well, what else is new? What Vietnamese singer hasn’t? Sure, she did covers for a few alot of her songs, but why raise our eyebrows now?

If you listen to Vietnamese music (assuming you do since your reading this blog :D) more than 50% of the music in the Vietnamese music industry is stolen, or covers if stolen sounds to negative ;). Are the original artist ever created? rarely. Let me list Vietnamese singer who covered *cough* stolen *cough* song (let me list some examples also)

Lam Truong – Mai Mai(Forever By Ahn Jae Wook)
Minh Tuyet – Nu Hon Biet Ly (Kiss Goodbye by Nu Flavor)
Dan Truong – Bai Ca MiYaHee (Dragostea Din Tei by O-Zone)
Noo Thinh Phuoc – Because I’m Stupid (Boys Over Flower OST)
Ung Hoang Phuc – Nguoi Di Ngang Doi Toi(Only love by Trademark)

I believe this whole controversy started when Lenka brought up to the press about how Bao Thy covered her song without crediting her for it. I respect that and I understand where Lenka is coming from. When you work that hard to create something and have someone take it without asking and without crediting you for it is pretty damn inconsiderate.

But was it intentional? did Bao Thy claim she wrote the song?

So why bash on Bao Thy? Personally I like Bao Thy and I enjoy alot of her covers. IMO she sings a hella lot better than alot of Vietnamese female singers out there (looks alot better also, the way she dresses on the other hand…ehhh) The problem is, however, it hurt and hold back the Vietnamese music industry from progressing. If all you sing is other people’s song and take other idea, work, and creativity when do you space to put in your own idea, work, and creativity?
