Our “Girl from Rio” is on VMA 2021. After passing through the red carpet of the biggest video clip awards in the world this Sunday (12), she is recognized as the first Brazilian to perform at the awards.

For her first appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards, she chose a look made exclusively for her and signed by the South Korean designer Miss Sohee.

Despite not having been broadcast in Brazil, the presentation of the hit “Girl from Rio” during the break of the show was released on MTV’s Youtube.

In an interview at the beginning of the event, she spoke about the moment: “It’s the first time a Brazilian artist at the event so I’m very happy. I’m going to show my two personas. The first is Larissa, at my house, and then comes Anitta , diva”.

Anitta has been increasingly consolidating her international career and her work earned, in April this year, the award for “Best Female Artist” at the Latin American Music Awards 2021.

Meanwhile, the artist is expected to perform at a private Billboard Latin Music Awards event scheduled for September 22. It is possible that the singer will present the next single from the album “Girl From Rio”, which does not yet have a release date, during the occasion.
