tbh this production is probably the best I've seen this year. a perfect infusion of several genres which goes perfectly into the summer also sets well in every radio format and it's a grower.

This is a grower. It's very chill and carefree. I don't see this going anywhere but it could be a cute top 40 radio hit if the label play their cards right. 

At first I find it very meh but now I like it and I have played the song like 10 times today.

as much as i agree it would be so much better if she included more brazilian rhythms into her music, she’s trying to achieve commercial success in the US and she can’t just go with a full brazilian funk song for example because americans aren’t used to that type of sound and won’t support the song so she has to play it safe. at least she’s giving us a mix of brazil x US i guess 

Vai Malandra did get her name out there a bit though. Cardi B used a WAP funk remix at the Grammys :michael: maybe she just needs  to mix Funk properly with an urban sound (me gusta was not it). I don't think playing it safe is the best path. Literally the most times a pop girl managed to get their first hits it was either for a very original sound, a very original visual or a very strong presence + attitude. Girl From Rio is not it. She's playing too safe.

 

If Anitta really thinks trying this soft Bossa Nova sound will do anything for her... I mean the sample sounds is great and it could work but the trap beat is so basic and overdone, there's a bunch of basic songs like that..

I hate this basic trap pop, but the sample elevates it. But if her bops can’t do nothing outside Brasil I don’t see how this will except for maybe shops and elevators...

The problem with Anitta is that she doesn’t have a unique sound. She’s always chasing whatever trend she thinks will get her a hit. Like for example, this trap sound is so not her but because she knows it worked for Ariana and it’s very popular in Latin America she decided to go that route and the song sounds like elevator music

This sounds like LP by Red Velvet

It's a Garota de Ipanema sample, one of the most famous songs/melodies of all time. which is also the base for the elevator music cliche

I've said it.  it's an instant ear worm, but when the chorus hits you it's truly over. I literally woke up this night at 5am while the melody was soaring in my head. :jonny6:

I played it for a few of my friends and they loved it. If this goes Tik Tok viral she won :jonny5:

It's the magic of the Ipanema sample :jonny:

 

 

Anita's US team better go HAM and represent RIO in the U. S. masses

 

We need zoom radio tours and all sorts of promo

That's it. They must do every kind of promo iHeart media requests. If she can get some kind of top 40 traction behind this it will be a win already.

I feel listeners reception have been positively so far I still haven't seen negative statements over it apart from stan world which is completely biased. I ain't even a casual listener of Anitta but this tune caught me fast because it's a great infusion from what's on trend in a different.

I really like this. Its Spotify performance was impressive WW too considering she only managed a #4 debut in Brazil.
