Anitta is making moves in the video game space. On Thursday, the Brazilian superstar performed her latest hit “Me Gusta” as part of the celebrations for the upcoming FIFA 21 game.

A few select artists from all over the world were invited to give headlining performances in honor of FIFA 21. That included Anitta, British pop star Dua Lipa, Australian rock group Tame Impala, and U.S. EDM wizard Diplo. They are also a part of the eclectic soundtrack for the sports video game.

Anitta’s “Me Gusta,” with Cardi B and Myke Towers, is included on the FIFA 21 soundtrack that’s now streaming on Spotify. In a very sports-like fashion, she performed the song on a soccer field. If her goal was to put on a memorable performance, consider it a golazo. Anitta shined during the virtual neon-colored moment.

Along with Anitta, other notable Latin music acts on the FIFA 21 soundtrack include Colombian band Bomba Esteréo’s “Aloha” with Spanish artist Carlos Sadness, Puerto Rican duo Domino Saints’ “Buya,” and Honduran producer Trooko’s “No Es Mi Culpa” with Portuguese singer Diogo Piçarra. Much of the globe is musically represented on the soundtrack.

The FIFA 21 video game will be released on Oct. 9. Anitta is currently putting the finishing touches on her new Spanish-language album with executive producer Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic.
