Brazilian superstar and smash hit maker Anitta has had an amazing year so far.
She performed at Coachella, which featured appearances from Saweetie and Snoop Dogg. It was also one of the most talked-about two-day weekends in a long time.
She also recently released her album, “Versions Of Me,” which featured Khalid, Saweetie, Cardi B, and several others and also garnered several positive reviews and comments.
However, on the personal side of things, not much is known about her. She has been reported to be single– until now, as there have been reports of the singer being romantically involved with Murda Beatz, a DJ and music producer who has worked with several artists, including Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, and Drake.
Murda Beatz Recently Flew To Brazil To Meet Anitta’s Family
The pair recently went Instagram official after Beatz recently joined Anitta to visit her family in Brazil. These pictures of their getaway were posted on Instagram.
While one image featured the two embracing each other, another showed Anitta resting her head on Beatz’s shoulder.
“Yes, it’s Valentine’s Day in Brazil today,” she captioned the photos.
Before this, the singer had a sit-down with J.Balvin for the Interview magazine, where she shared that she was in love. Although she didn’t drop the name of her new flame, she only added that he was famous.
“For the people close to me, I’m scared of them hurting me somehow. Even though I’m scared, I still keep letting people into my life. I meet new people every day and bring them into my routine and I don’t think about it.”
She also shared her view on relationships, stating that she goes all in when talking with someone new. “I date the person thinking we’re going to get married and have kids. I think I’m going to die with this person holding hands and we are going to be buried in the same cemetery side by side. If you’re in love, you’ve got to trust that it’s going to work,” she concluded.
She Also Opened Up About International Stardom On Another Interview
Following the success of her hit song, “Envolver,” and her jaw-dropping performance at Coachella, she opened up to Billboard on the strides she took to achieve stardom.
“Being an international artist is not only about being famous wherever you go, because the world is so big,” Anitta explained to Billboard. “It’s about being able to impact culturally different areas at the same time.”
She recalled the response of her brother when she initially told him that she wanted to break into the international music industry back in 2015.
“Why? You will need to start from the bottom and do the s–t you were doing six years ago,’” her brother said at the time. “You don’t even have the energy anymore.’”
“And I told him that’s what I wanted, although I was really scared,” she admitted. “It meant I would abandon everything I had done. I knew that if I failed, everyone in my country would laugh at me. That’s what happens to everyone who tries and fails. I didn’t want to become a joke. I wanted it to happen for real.”
Her brother wasn’t the only one who discouraged her from international success; several label executives also tried to discourage her.
“Many executives at labels told me that it was impossible to have an international career as a Brazilian, and they weren’t being mean — they just had never seen anyone do it recently,” Anitta added. “I was like, ‘I don’t know, there’s no “impossible” for me.’ I understood that you had to risk your whole career and you got to have balls to keep insisting. It isn’t easy or quick, especially when you’re already used to being treated as a star in a country and then you go to another market and you’re treated as a nobody.”
She Enjoyed A Trip To Mexico
Anitta wasn’t one to be fazed. After the discouragement she got from her brother and several executive labels, she took a trip to Mexico, where she observed how people interacted with music and what got them “crazy and dancing.”
“I got another taxi and told him, ‘I want to go to the cheapest club here, where the poor people go,’” she remembers. “He looked at me confused, but that’s where I saw people perreando [twerking], and I was like, ‘OK.’”
Two Things Made Anitta A Success
Apart from her determination, two major things made Anitta a success; her attention to detail and her penchant for inclusiveness and versatility. Her latest album, “Versions Of Me” features songs in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
“I like being a different person every day,” she said. “Today I’ll be romantic, tomorrow I’ll be nerdy, tomorrow I’ll be sad. That’s what I think it is to be Anitta: to be limitless.”
