About the song Anitta commented, “All the music I’ve been making for the past year is music I’m so proud of. It’s both incredibly Brazilian and intentionally international – I made sure it sounds like me in every fiber of the music. Brazilian funk is my roots. It’s what I was born and raised doing. It’s home to me. I made this new music with the intention of showing everyone those roots, what’s most important to me, and leading with ‘Funk Rave’ does exactly that.”
The track finds the iconic artist intimately connecting to her roots. This time around, she leans into a Brazilian funk bounce, updating a classic style for the next generation. From the jump, she teases, “Look at what you can’t have, boss bitch,” before delivering an up-tempo dancefloor-ready refrain.
Anitta initially teased “Funk Rave” earlier this month when she debuted the single live during the Opening Ceremony of the UEFA Champions League Finals in Istanbul, Turkey. Her performance sent fans into a frenzy as they clamored for the track’s official arrival. Meeting the demand, she has delivered what’s shaping up to be a global anthem.
Since breaking through in Brazil six years ago, Grammy-nominated global superstar Anitta has become the leading artist of a new generation of Latin American music.
Anitta’s first single of 2022, “Envolver,” became the biggest solo debut by a Brazilian artist in the history of the Spotify Global Chart and broke Anitta’s record by reaching #1 on iTunes in 19 countries. She also released her latest album Versions of Me in April 2022. The 15-track album was released in Spanish, English, and Portuguese and holds the record of biggest streaming week for a Brazilian artist on Spotify. It now has surpassed 1 billion streams on Spotify.
