Khalil Fong – Not So Easy

Hong Kong-based musician Khalil Fong releases his second single a few days ahead of the release of his fifth studio album, titled simply 15 — referencing “the age he began learning to play the guitar under the influence of the likes of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and B. B. King.

The guitar-driven new album serves up 11 tracks of soul/R&B/retro rock numbers, including the first plug Because of You, the LaLa Hsu-duet Self-Assumption, and the heartwarming, wedding-themed love song Not So Easy (好不容易, Hao Bu Rong Yi) which boasts the backing of a 60-piece orchestra.

The music video, which shows a familiar-looking Fong with a soft color palette, revolves around several couples who are about to get married, married or just together. The video was directed by Edward Chan, Charles Lee, and Khalil Fong.

Here’s a link to the upload on YouTube.
