Anitta Reveals the Status of Her Upcoming Multilingual Album

Anitta is opening up about her background, and her new music!

The 27-year-old Brazilian bombshell opened up in an interview with V Magazine.

Here’s what the “Tócame” singer had to say…

On growing up in Rio: “I had a simple life—my family wasn’t a ‘money’ family. So I needed to be creative to [get] things done. And also, with this party vibe that the country, and especially Rio, has… Being born in the middle of this good mess made me want to create opportunities for myself. Whatever is necessary to do to reach my goal, I just do it. When I was poor, I didn’t have the opportunities or structure to do what I wanted. So I needed to create my own structure. That’s what I think.”

On patriarchy: “I have no filter. Whoever talks to me, I’m just honest. So I think that this brings even more prejudice for myself because people expect you, as a woman, they have expectations like: ‘Okay. So you’re going to be like this. You’re going to have a boyfriend. You’re going to be every, every day you got to behave like that.’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to be like that. I just want to do whatever I want to do.’ Why can men do whatever they want to do, and women can not? Now, it’s good, because other women [artists] have told me that I’ve helped [make things] less difficult for them. ‘Cause I’ve already caught all those rocks that people were throwing at me. I like to push new [artists], you know? If someone is blowing up, or is super talented, I know that if I give just a little push, they’re going to go even farther.”

On new music: “We are cooking new music! I mean, we just finished cooking all of it. We’re bringing some things from Brazil, so people in Brazil are gonna feel they’re represented somehow. It’s like half-English, half-Spanish, with a few words of Portugese [thrown in]. It’s me, introducing Brazilian culture to the world. This album is amazing. I feel it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I just listen to it every day. I did one of the videos before the quarantine, here in Brazil. The others we are going to shoot when [quarantine] is over. Which… will hopefully be soon?”
