Netizens Are Shocked by the Beautiful Aesthetics of Perlis in Yuna’s New Music Video
Yuna is by far Malaysia’s best export to the global music industry.
Collaborating with big names of the industry, Yuna‘s sweet voice and chill vibe serenade the senses with lyrics that are at times profound, hitting you right in the feels.
Despite her many international success, she has never forgotten her roots.
The LA-based Malaysian singer who is best known worldwide for featuring in Usher’s “Crush” and working with several big names of the industry – from Pharrell to Owl City – brings her music back home in her latest single Forevermore.
The single is best seen as an ode to Malaysia, particularly the small state of Perlis!
According to Star2, the song Forevermore is inspired by the melody of a Syair, a form of classical Malay poetry.
Interestingly, the music video pays homage to her small town upbringing and serves as a reminder that “we shouldn’t forget about the simple and beautiful things in life.”
The video, directed by her husband Adam Sinclair was filmed in the Malaysian state of Perlis and several other locations also feature some new moves churned out by the Malaysian phenom!
“We wanted to show Malaysia in a different way – not the way that you see in travel videos. We wanted to showcase the unfiltered, quirky and raw beauty of the mundane.”
And her fans are loving the local aesthetics!
Yuna's new music is amazing and most of the scenes were filmed in Perlis!!

Yuna herself said that the song was about her life growing up in Perlis.
“I wanted to feature Perlis because it’s where I spent most of my childhood.”
“I wanted to show how beautiful it was and still is, and how untouched by modernisation, which I love very much.”
Calling the music video a “fantastical depiction of my childhood memories”, the music video was also shot in Stadium Shah Alam, Batu Caves and many other locations.
We hope that Yuna will continue to excite us with her unique brand of music that puts us on the map now and Forevermore!
