If you like rap or hip hop, I recommend you listen to this song by Cai Jianya and MC Hot Dog. This song captures a state of "modern love". In the music video, Cai Jianya and the main actor have an "ambiguous" relationship. Emphasizing that they live in the moment, just truly enjoying themselves. Not committing to a long-term relationship.
