UFM100.3 debuts catchy Chinese New Year music video for the Year of the Monkey

Singapore, 18th January 2016 – UFM100.3 has launched its latest original Chinese New Year song 《什么都猴》 (which means “All Things Good"), performed by UFM100.3 DJs, to welcome the Year of the Monkey.

The electronic-dance music arrangement of the song has an upbeat melody which is catchy yet simple for listeners to sing-along to. The song was inspired by recent Mandopop hit songs such as “Little Apple” by the Chopsticks Brothers and “Sister” by Taiwanese singer Jeannie Hsieh.

With UFM100.3 celebrating its 15th Anniversary this year, Hu Tianpei, UFM100.3 Music Producer and composer of the song, skilfully included the word “Huat” (which means "to prosper") 15 times in the song lyrics. The word monkey “猴” (which is a sound-play of the word “好” that stands for "good"), appeared 58 times in the lyrics, wishing listeners all things good this Chinese New Year.

Accompanying the launch of UFM100.3’s Chinese New Year song was the release of the song’s Music Video (MV) on UFM100.3 Facebook. The MV features UFM100.3 DJs dressed in pyjamas and flower headbands, singing and dancing to the song. The team specially invited a professional dancer to choreograph the dance steps for the chorus, and to perform in the MV too.

Response from viewers was very positive and encouraging, with listeners creatively using the word “猴” (sound play of the word (“好”) in their comments of the video.

The video production team behind "All Things Good" was the same crew who shot UFM100.3's hilarious video "I Dislike You" 《讨厌你》, a one-hit wonder on Facebook last month, clocking more than 1 million views over three days. "I Dislike You" is a parody of Malayisan singer Joyce Chu’s song “I Miss U”, featuring UFM100.3 DJ Li Mei dressed in pyjamas, flip flops and a flower headband, all while strumming her ukulele and singing to lyrics also rewritten by Tianpei.

This was also the reason behind UFM100.3 DJs dressing in pyjamas with a flower headband for their latest MV –  the UFM100.3 team promised to dress up like Li Mei once the "I Dislike You" MV clocks 1 million views on Facebook.

Aside from the Chinese New Year MV, the team also released a set of videos on Zodiac Sign Predictions 《猴祖生肖运势》 related to topics of relationship, work and overall luck. The videos featured UFM100.3 DJ Liang Quan as the "Monkey God", and DJs Li Mei, Cheng Yao, Wei Long and UFM100.3 Producer Yan Zhi as various Zodiac animals in the stories.
