PETALING JAYA, July 2 ― Pop star Yuna’s colourful music video Forevermore boasting the colourful beauty of several Malaysian locations served as inspiration of a group of friends who wanted to embrace the visual ode to Malaysia.
On a whim, the seven on a trip to Penang, decided to use the scenic beauty of the attractions of the Pearl of the Orient as a backdrop for a dance cover of the first single off the Los Angeles-based musicians’s upcoming studio album, Rouge.
We came up with the idea of dancing to Yuna's Forevermore on a whim, two days before we left for our Penang trip! @yunamusic is a major inspiration to our diverse group, and we hope you enjoy our dance cover, inspired by Karma Raines 💓#forevermorechallenge #babistakePENANG pic.twitter.com/uTr5vN931n— Rachel Jong ❤ (@racheljongys) June 30, 2019
