Kicking off a massive new chapter, record-breaking international superstar Anitta unveils a new single entitled “Funk Rave” today. It marks her first release under her newly minted deal with Republic Records in partnership with Universal Music Latin Entertainment.

About the song Anitta commented, “All the music I’ve been making for the past year is music I’m so proud of. It’s both incredibly Brazilian and intentionally international – I made sure it sounds like me in every fiber of the music. Brazilian funk is my roots. It’s what I was born and raised doing. It’s home to me. I made this new music with the intention of showing everyone those roots, what’s most important to me, and leading with ‘Funk Rave’ does exactly that.”
The track finds the iconic artist intimately connecting to her roots. This time around, she leans into a Brazilian funk bounce, updating a classic style for the next generation. From the jump, she teases, “Look at what you can’t have, boss bitch,” before delivering an up-tempo dancefloor-ready refrain.
Anitta initially teased “Funk Rave” earlier this month when she debuted the single live during the Opening Ceremony of the UEFA Champions League Finals in Istanbul, Turkey. Her performance sent fans into a frenzy as they clamored for the track’s official arrival. Meeting the demand, she has delivered what’s shaping up to be a global anthem.
