What is the meaning of “Mon Soleil” in Ashley Park’s trending tune from the second series of the comedy-drama?
In season one of Emily in Paris, we learn that Mindy Chen has an impeccable singing voice despite being reluctant to let the world hear it after an embarrassing stint on China’s version of Pop Idol.
Season two sees Emily Cooper’s best friend delve into her passion for singing as she brings her Broadway vocals and talents to the screen and fans can’t get enough.
Mindy performs an original song, written specifically for the show, called “Mon Soleil” which includes romantic lyrics and a powerful performance.
After an impromptu performance of BTS’s “Dynamite” in the series, Mindy was then approached by struggling French bandmates Benoît and Étienne who asked her to sing with them.
Mindy soon struck up a romance with guitarist and singer Benoît and the pair wrote a beautiful song together about falling in love.
