PETALING JAYA: Joyce Chu, the 17-year-old YouTube singing sensation from Johor Baru, is making waves on Internet with her catchy hit Malaysia Chabor (Malaysian girl).
Just a week after it was uploaded, the song has gone viral, generating a staggering 2.3 million views with steadily climbing numbers.
In the song, written and composed by rapper-songwriter Namewee, Joyce tells viewers that she is a "Malaysian Chabor" and not Korean, as many have assumed her to be.
"I'm from JB, a place near Singapore. I'm a true Malaysian girl. I know kimchi tastes delicious, but my favourite is cendol and keropok," she proudly sings while playing the ukulele.
She also pokes fun at the idea of plastic surgery, a popular trend in South Korea, and takes a light-hearted jab at those who accuse her of going under the knife.
"Thank you for 'following' me day and night, although I know you're actually criticising me. About my face, nose, chin, eyes and dimples, everything is fake including my ears," Joyce chirps.
Apart from the catchy Malaysian tune, Joyce has also uploaded many other videos of her singing to her YouTube account.
