The result of the 14th General Election in Malaysia may be the hot topic for today, but last night, something amazing happen at Bruno Mars’ Malaysia concert – the Hispanic crooner sang a Malay song!
Even though it was just a few words, many fans swooned when the singer sang the line “Aku rindu mu, sayang”, which literally translated as “I miss you, baby.”

The 32-year-old replaced some of the lyrics from the song “Calling All My Lovelies” from his 24K Magic album, with the Malay words, and many fans are impressed by the singer’s on point pronunciation of the words.
