Anitta has released her new song “Girl From Rio” and you can watch the video right here!
The video pays homage to the culture of her hometown of Rio de Janeiro and the visual premiered on a billboard in Times Square this morning!
The song samples the melody of “The Girl From Ipanema” with a twist for the 21st century. On her Instagram, Anitta opened up about the meaning of the song.
“‘Girl From Rio’ is about the Rio de Janeiro under my perspective, the Rio I saw and lived in,” she wrote. “This is a very personal song. I talk a little bit about everything, my family, the place where I came from, where I grew up, the people I saw and see every day, it’s my point of view about women in general and the beauty that I see in them. To be able to translate all that history and meaning into music, I counted on some friends, who are also internationally renowned songwriters and producers.”
Anitta sings in the song’s chorus, “Hot girls, where I’m from, we don’t look like models / Tan lines, big curves and the energy glows / You’ll be falling in love with the girl from Rio.”
