With a colorful video set in scenic Salvador, Brazil, pop superstar Anitta is lighting up the charts with “Me Gusta,” her collab with Cardi B and Myke Towers.
Anitta told NBC News the Cardi B mix was not something she had planned:
Part of what the universe brought Anitta back was an unexpected surprise from her manager a few weeks ago when he asked the singer to approve the mix of her latest single “Me Gusta” featuring Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B and Puerto Rican singer Myke Towers.
“I didn’t know anything,” said Anitta. “And when I was listening, it dropped her [Cardi B’s] voice and I was like, wow! … That’s a perfect match.”
Anitta, 27, born Larissa de Macedo Machado, has become the leading artist of a new generation of Latin American music by blending, as she says, “Latino sounds with Brazilian culture with pop American radio” since she broke through in Brazil six years ago.
Good things happen when cultures collaborate creatively!
