Featured along the release, the video is a celebratory homage to the resilient and vibrant culture of her hometown of Rio de Janeiro. The clip made its global broadcast premiere today on MTV Live, MTVU, and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the ViacomCBS Times Square billboard.
Anitta serves up a sassy and sexy ode to the ladies of her hometown. Her cheeky and clever verses give way to the immediately chantable hook, “Hot girls where I’m from. We don’t look like models. Tanned lines, big curves, and the energy glows, you’ll be falling in love with the real Rio.”
Nodding to classic mid-century musicals, Anitta dons a forties-era bathing suit like a vixen from the rudder of a WWII plane and launches into a stunning routine surrounded by sailors enamored with her. Fast-forward to modern day, she gives audiences a look at the ultimate beach day in Rio — and it’s every bit as hot as you’d hope it would be!
She recently lit up the stage at the Latin American Music Awards by joining forces with Maluma, Wisin, and Myke Towers for a powerhouse rendition of “Mi Niña” and taking home the award for “Favorite Artist Female.” She graced the most recent cover of Allure who christened her, “An uncensored force changing the face and flavor of Brazilian beauty.”
The Brazilian global pop superstar will deliver the debut television performance of the single on NBC’s Today Show on May 3rd and the following evening, May 4th on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! Anitta will also perform on the first-ever televised special of the Latin GRAMMY® Celebra: Ellas y Su Música airing May 9th on Univision.
