KUALA LUMPUR: The latest single from Malaysia's top singer Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin continues to elicit ‘the warm fuzzies’ in Netizens as they offer their heartmelting experiences online.
The music video to the lullaby tune Comel Pipi Merah, which was uploaded on YouTube via her official DatoSNurhalizaVEVO channel two days ago, had began trending at No. 4 after garnering over 422,000 views, 35,000 likes and 1,500 comments.
Many had wrote that they felt choked up after watching the four-minute video.
“I had a wide smile from start to finish. Didn't even realise I had shed a tear," wrote one fan.
Another offered: "Don't know why I'm choked up. Such a long wait for the country's No. 1 singer to be blessed."
Even one Netizen who admitted that he wasn't a fan, wrote: "One thing for certain is that she can really sing. Congrats to Datuk Seri Siti and Datuk Seri Khalid."
The comments online were overwhelmingly positive with many congratulating the premiere songstress on finally achieving motherhood after close to 12 years of being married to Datuk Seri Khalid Mohamad Jiwa.
Many wished her firstborn baby, named Aafiyah, well too.
The music video featured a sequence of images, from prenatal ultrasound images and her baby room setup at home to Siti being led on a hospital bed into the operating theatre and finally the cute visages of her little baby.
These were interspersed with a glowing Siti, who was heavily pregnant at the time, singing the tune while seated on a swing.
The catchy song, composed by the singer herself, featured lyrics by her manager Rozi Abdul Razak, who is also Siti’s sister-in-law.
It was produced and arranged by Lee Sze Wan, with guitars by Sham of Kamikaze and drums by John Thomas.
A separate lyric video for the song, which was uploaded on Universal Music Malaysia's YouTube channel on March 14, was also a hit with Netizens. It trended at No. 5 with close to three million views and about 2,000 comments.
Siti gave birth to her 3.55kg baby girl via C-section on March 19 at about 8.17am in a private hospital here.
Her little princess was nicknamed Fatimah Az-Zahra before Siti officially announced her name as Aafiyah during a private thanksgiving event at her residence last Sunday.
The function was screened live on her YouTube channel.
