Context

Still untitled, the new single succeeds “Girl From Rio”, which placed Anitta on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and on the VMA break. This is the singer’s first release after deciding to remake her new album.

It was ready since the beginning of last year and had its release postponed several times due to the pandemic. It was even announced for October, but in September Anitta revealed the change of plans:

“I changed my mind. Sorry, fans, but after I came here (United States), ‘living’ because of the quarantine, very amazing things started to happen: opportunity to work with a lot of people… And then we were thinking: ‘Man, or we release the album now, as it was, or we have the opportunity to improve the album, but wait for next year.’ I decided to wait to have something more amazing, so we’re changing some ideas that we had on the album”, he added.
