Sweet Hurting: A Collaboration Between Gangga and Valentina Ploy About the Sweetness of Heartbreak

Bingkai KaryaGangga, a singer-songwriter from Surabaya, Indonesia, has released a new single titled “Sweet Hurting” in collaboration with Thai singer Valentina Ploy. The song tells the story of heartbreak, but not just any heartbreak. It is the heartbreak of losing someone you love to death.

Gangga began her music career with the release of the single “Blue Jeans,” which topped the Global Viral Chart on Spotify and went viral on TikTok, with over 30,000 creators using it in their videos. In 2021, she released her debut album, “It’s Never Easy,” which helped to establish her as a singer-songwriter. The album’s folk and pop influences, combined with its mid-tempo, laid-back sound, have become her signature sound.

“Sweet Hurting” is a departure from Gangga’s usual sound. The song begins with an acoustic guitar riff, which is then joined by a gradually building, orchestral arrangement. Gangga and Valentina Ploy’s soft vocals tell the story of finding sweetness in sadness.

The chorus of the song, which is the song’s emotional core, is particularly moving:

I’ve never known that hurting could be sweet too

When it comes to the memory of you

I’m dancing with my sadness

Like I used to do with you

Do you think about it too

I’m Sweet Hurting for you

The song suggests that even in the midst of sadness, there is sweetness to be found in the memories of those we love. By accepting the pain, those who have been left behind can find a new sense of comfort in their sadness.

The music video for “Sweet Hurting” also conveys a message about the sweetness of remembering happy moments with those who have passed away. The video follows two people who meet briefly but make a lasting impression on each other. They are both at their lowest points in life, but they find comfort in each other’s company. However, they eventually decide not to pursue a relationship because they both have personal issues to deal with.

Gangga worked with HAV Studio and KSM Records to create the video. The video was shot in a variety of locations, including a beach, a forest, and a city street. The cinematography is beautiful and evocative, and the performances by Gangga and Valentina Ploy are both moving and powerful.

With “Sweet Hurting,” Gangga and Valentina Ploy offer a new perspective on heartbreak. The song suggests that even in the midst of pain, there is still beauty to be found.
