Marian Rivera, donning a simple cap, oversized shirt, and track pants, merely danced to a sped-up version of “Price Tag” on Tiktok as a way of enjoying herself — but what started as a fun video turned out to be a viral sensation after it garnered over 185 million views, and counting.

The Kapuso primetime queen told reporters on the sidelines of the Preview Ball that grooving along to the Jessie J hit song was just her own way of trying something out on the social media platform.


“Ang daming nagsasabi sa’kin kung bakit hindi ako sumasayaw, na-miss nila akong sumayaw. Sabi ko nga, why not? Nag-try lang ako ng ‘Price Tag’ at hindi ko alam na magugustuhan nila kasi ginawa ko lang ‘yun [nang] nage-enjoy lang ako,” she told reporters.


“‘Yung tipong, post ko lang ‘to, try ko lang. Tapos kinabukasan, ang dami ko nang messages. Ang dami kong tawag,” she further added.

(Many people have been asking me why I am not dancing anymore, they miss seeing me dance. So I said, why not? I just tried dancing to “Price Tag” and I didn’t know that they would like it. I was just enjoying myself at the time. I just wanted to post the video, and to try things out. Then the next day, I received a lot of messages and calls.)

Her viral Tiktok video soon followed with her own renditions of her song “Sabay Sabay Tayo,” “It’s Plenty” by Ken, and more recently, “’If It’s Lovin’ That You Want” by Rihanna.

When asked about her casual attire in her viral videos, the Kapuso star said that’s how she usually dresses in real life even before starring in the hit teleserye “Marimar.”

“Gusto ko na parang salamin ‘yan, kung saan ako komportable kasi gan’un naman talaga ako sa totoong buhay. Sa totoo lang, gan’un ako bago mag-Marimar. Shirt and tracksuit (I wanted my videos to be like a mirror where I can be comfortable because that’s how I am in real life. Honestly, that’s how I was before ‘Marimar’ — a shirt and a tracksuit),” she said.


During the event, content creator Niana Guerrero revealed to entertainment reporters that she would love to collaborate with the Kapuso star for a video for the future, a compliment that surprised Rivera.

Guerrero is known for her dance covers on social media that took the notice of foreign acts, including K-pop idols such as EXO’s Chanyeol, Treasure’s Asahi and Hyunsuk, and NCT’s Taeyong.

“Wow! Pero parang kailangan ko munang mag-practice kasi ang husay ng batang ‘yun. Hanggang arte-arte lang ako (Wow! But it looks like I need to practice first because that kid is really good. I can only go along with the flow,” Rivera said while laughing. EDV
