There’s Nothing This Trilingual Star Can’t Do
Anitta has been preparing for the release of her highly anticipated fifth album. She has been working with Max Martin and Ryan Tedder; and has teased the release with the singles “Envolver,” “Faking Love” featuring Saweetie; and “Me Gusta” featuring Cardi B and Myke Towers.
On what fans can expect, she said in a recent interview: “We’re going to have a lot of funk [throughout the upcoming album].
