New York rapper Cardi B is on her music grind once again. Fresh off dropping her chart-topping “WAP” single to the masses, she comes through with the major assist for Brazilian pop star Anitta and Myke Towers on their “Me Gusta” single and music video.
Check out the full “Me Gusta” release details below.
Today, Anitta drops “Me Gusta,” a star-studded anthem for the last days of summer featuring Cardi B and Myke Towers. The single builds on the warm, sultry sound that’s made Anitta one of Brazil’s biggest breakout pop superstars. Paired with a stunning video, it’s a taste of her forthcoming album, which is executive produced by the award-winning Ryan Tedder.
On September 23, Anitta, flanked by Cardi and Towers, will give “Me Gusta” its sure-to-be-sizzlin television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The Brazilian phenomenon has also been confirmed to perform at iHeart Radio’s Fiesta Latina 2020.
On “Me Gusta” thetrio spill simmering verses over a humid guitar riff, flipping effortlessly between English and Spanish. Anitta’s gorgeous vocals float like a cloud, Cardi’s bars are stinging and self-assured, and Towers’ indelible tonality, flow and force prove to be the perfect counterpart for these two female powerhouses. It’s a song that begs for sweaty clubs and crowded beach parties — but for now, dancing in our bedrooms will do.
Quarantine has been the story of 2020 for Anitta, but she hasn’t let it slow her down. She’s gone live on socials nearly every day from her home in Rio de Janeiro, keeping her fans up to date on her recording process. She’s also joined Miley Cyrus, J Balvin, Katy Perry, David Guetta, P. Diddy, and more for chats and performances. Before the world slowed down, Anitta was set to take both the Coachella and Rock In Rio stages by storm in 2020.
“Me Gusta” is another impressive notch on Anitta’s belt. It follows the July release of her single “Tócame,” featuring Arcangel and De La Ghetto, which has amassed over 40 million cumulative streams. Earlier this summer, Anitta signed with Warner Records, the start of a fruitful partnership that has pushed her music even further. Boasting 5 Latin GRAMMY® Award nominations, 6 MTV EMA wins, nearly 5 billion YouTube views, and 6.5 billion Spotify streams, Anitta is already a star, and “Me Gusta” has the power to intensify her global shine even more.
