Singer Kelly Chen turns up the heat for new single So Hot
Singer Kelly Chen Wai-lam, who put her career on hold for two years to raise her children, is ready to launch her new album.
Determined to launch the recording with a bang, the mother-of-two wore a bath robe for the music video, with her hair wrapped in towel, to promote her new single So Hot. Those working on the set joked she resembled the titular character in Ang Lee's Life of Pi.
To emphasise the "hot" in her song, Chen is seen in the video chomping down on spicy food, such as chilli peppers and kimchi pickles. She even surprised the director by downing a handful of chillies without drinking a drop of water.
"I'm a hot mum, so nothing spicy is too hot for me," she joked.
Chen worked with noted composers and lyricists, including Ivana Wong Yuen-chi and Leung Pak-kin, on her new album, which will be released next month.
