Former Ch 8 actress, water filtration ambassador and newbie musician Sora Ma never expected her first foray into music to go viral. You know, the Hydroflux song (Haven't watched it? Go on, we'll wait.) that has racked up about 140,000 views, 876 shares and 520 comments since the local brand posted the music video on Facebook this month. The song, which has a mix of English and Malay lyrics penned by Sora herself, sees her sing-rapping and extolling the virtues of the “slim and glamorous” device, and how it will change your family’s life. The overall effect, as aptly described in online articles, is “so bad that it’s good”. So of course Netizens had a field day with it. Some were amused (“I laughed til my underwear dropped”). Others found answers in life (“And this is why people drink alcohol”). Several questioned if it was a spoof (“I actually thought it was an ad by Sgag but it’s real?”) and if it would cause a dent in the actress’ career (“I hope you have a second job”). So we thought it was only right to hear it from Sora herself — about how she’s taking to viral fame, her songwriting process, and her upcoming single that has nothing to do with water filtration.
