Love song tribute to Chinese president and wife

A song, Papa Xi loves Mommy Peng, which is a musical tribute to the love between the Chinese president and his folk-singer wife, has been taking the Chinese internet by storm.

The video of President Xi Jinping and his wife, Peng Liyuan, has been viewed 56m times on its original website in the past eight days.

A band of four musicians in China's central Henan province composed the song.

"This is a simple love song," one of the band members, Yu Runze, said. "The sweet feeling between the couple is the only thing we want to show."
