“Me Gusta” is the second single from Anitta’s Spanish-language album that’s due out later this year. Samba drum beats and a reggae guitar riff soundtrack her Spanglish track. The openly bisexual Anitta details the spell she’s under by a woman on the dance floor. Cardi B’s “La Caldi” re-emerges on her attitude-packed verse. Caldi shouts out her Afro-Latina identity while sharing that she likes “lo’ macho’” and “girls that kiss on girls.” Towers slides in for the finale and also spotlights that Latina magic that’s got a hold on him. There’s a lot to love about Anitta’s sexy and all-inclusive getaway banger.
Cardi B and Towers join Anitta in Brazil for the “Me Gusta” music video. Anitta features Banda Didá, the country’s premier all-female percussion group, on the drums. The vacation vibe of the song comes to life in the vibrant video. Anitta, Cardi, and Towers will perform “Me Gusta” live for the first time on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Sept. 23.
Anitta’s upcoming album will be her first with new partnership Warner Records. OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder served as executive producer of the project. She teased the album earlier this year with lead single “Tócame” featuring Arcángel and De La Ghetto.
