^ I can see what you mean. I just hope she stays true to herself.

To me Anitta is the prototype of the 2017 superstar: she seems down to earth, a cool kid. She's sexy and outgoing. Creative and in control of her music and image. She knows how to please her fans. Slaying with every release.

By releasing hit after hit, in Portuguese, Spanish and English, she has so much global appeal. I love the fact that she's from Brazil too. The times that only English music was dominating is over in the age of streaming. She's the perfect example of that.

OMG! The song's definitely sampling that Peter Pan song <3 Love it!

I watched a part of that interview, she's really smart and she seems like she knows what she's doing. "Keep my people with me and start to show up in other places". She's referring to staying true to her Brazilian fans, while trying to conquer English and Spanish markets.

I love her.

At this point, I don't think any other song will beat VM as the Brazilian "summer hit" in 2018. She's coming for real and it's already her best debut ever.

Everyone is talking about this here. There've been several analyses of VM, song and music video, since it contains almost every aspect of Rio de Janeiro's favelas (the poor part of the city). It's basicaly about preaching 'forbidden' matters: the funk itself, women's empowering, sexuality, poor people etc.

Another important fact: there's a bill from a conservative Brazilian party which intent is to make funk ("Vai Malandra" music genre) an illegal thing. Yes (!), it's real. :lol:

If you look carefully, you'll notice its artwork contains "ANT 1256". In the other words, ANT(I Bill n.) 1256:

Hahah she calls radio stations to tell them to play her music? She's fantastic.

I don't know anything about Brazilian funk. Why is it illegal?
I love how Brazilian funk is probably going to be the biggest Brazilian export product since coffee beans haha. This is going global.

I don't think this song will be as big as 'Despacito' worldwide (it's not as radio friendly), but I do think 'Vai Malandra' will be as important as 'Despacito' for Brazilian favela funk. It will open doors for the genre, globally.
I'm sure the success will influence DJ's and artists to experiment with this sound and that we all be dancing to favela funk-inspired/influenced songs this Summer.

Brazilian funk is not illegal , but some very dumb legislator from our upper house is pushing a bill apparently to ban clubs to play it and forbid the genre altogether , since it would be considered a 'crime to Brazilian health system'. :lol:

Yes, there are some Brazilian funk clubs specially in Rio's favelas and other poor communities in Brazil that experienced problems with violence, rapes and sexual abuse of underage girls , but as Anitta say it all of this problems are related more to the failure of our education system than to the Brazilian funk movement, and she is right . Thing is, there is a lot of prejudice with this genre here even tho now is becoming more popular and being enjoyed from people from middle/upper classes.

Yes , but i was raised in the southernmost area of the country, just north of Uruguay so I was always much more invested in the latin culture as well than the average Brazilian. I love that finally there is interaction between Brazil and other latin countries in music, I believe together we can rule the charts and change the music landscape , is already happening.

Watch 'Bum Bum Tam Tam' , another Brazilian funk by Mc Fioti that just got a remix from J Balvin & Future be a global hit in the upcoming months. :wink:

Interesting! :) I'd LOVE to visit Rio de Janeiro. It's on top of my list, but it's so far from here and it's way too expensive for me at this point. I will in the future though, hopefully with my future boyfriend haha.

Yeah I can see what you mean. I've always been interested in latin culture and I always thought Brazil was a huge part of it, until I found out that the country has more of it's own culture and isn't necessarily a part of Latin culture. It's so interesting.

I like that MC Fioti song. I'm happy forces are combined now. It's so smart of Brazilian artists to work together with artists that are big in Latin America (J. Balvin, Maluma etc.) and now even with artists that are big in US and Europe too. I believe in the age of streaming, English is no longer the only dominating language in music anymore. I'm happy there's a mix now.

Where did you see that? And what exactly is the 'Check Mate' project, haha. It's very unclear to me. An EP?

Songs from the project are 'Downtown', 'Is That For Me', 'Will See You Again' and 'Vai Malandra' right?

^ It's true.

Check Mate Project = dropping one brand-new single/music video per month focusing international market. Basically, "Will See You" (september), "Is That for Me" (october), "Downtown" (november) and "Vai Malandra" (december).

For now, she'll take some rest, promote "Vai Malandra" and finish her 1st album in English.
