Brazilian singer, songwriter, actress, and dancer, Larissa de Macedo Machado, better known by her stage name Anitta, is currently enjoying the success of her latest single ‘Girl From Rio’ which is hot on streaming across the world.
With the song and her upcoming album on Warner Records, she is looking to have a big breakthrough worldwide (particularly in the U.S.) after already conquering the Brazilian and related markets over the last 10 years. The English-language track samples the 1962 hit “Garota de Ipanema” (“The Girl From Ipanema”) and pays tribute to Brazilian women.
Anitta will have more English-language tracks on the album as well. Following a vibrant performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live a couple of days ago, Anitta is looking to make a dent in the U.S. with a remix of her new single by enlisting American rapper, Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, known professionally as DaBaby.
Due to the success of the song “Meiga e Abusada” released in 2012, Anitta signed a contract with Warner Music Brazil the following year.
