U.S. chart, where she is also the first Brazilian artist to land on the spot. 


The music video for “Envolver” recently accumulated more than 100 million views on Youtube, prompting Anitta to write write on social media: “100 million views?! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! You guys are the best fans in the world. Very happy with everything that is happening.” It seems like the reggaeton pop track is thriving in all corners of the streaming industry!

Not only is she celebrating these incredible milestones for Brazilian talent, but she is also preparing herself for the achievements that she will achieve in this upcoming month alone. April’s shaping up to be a huge month for the international artist and her fanbase. Anitta will be performing later this month at Coachella and releasing her fifth studio album, Versions of Me, due on April 12. With a new album out, we can’t wait to see what her next accomplishment will be.
