Brazilian sensation Anitta has signed with Warner Records, Billboard has learned.
“I’m so excited to join the U.S. Warner Records team,” Anitta said in an official statement. “It’s the most important moment in my career. Now, I can show more of my art and culture to the world internationally. I can’t wait for everyone to hear all the new music I’ve been working on, which will be a fresh blend of both Spanish and English.”
Billboard can confirm that she has signed a global deal with Warner Music Group and all of her repertoire will be owned and led by Warner Records except her Portuguese-language music, owned by Warner Brazil, where Anitta has also just renewed her contract.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the global Warner Music Latin team to bring Anitta’s incredible music to the U.S. and beyond,” both Aaron Bay-Schuck and Tom Corson, co-Chairmen, Warner Records, noted. “Anitta is truly unlike any artist we’ve ever experienced. She’s not only an extraordinary musical talent but is a blazing creative force, an electrifying performer and a true cultural phenomenon. Alongside Anitta’s manager, Brandon Silverstein, we look forward to scaling even greater heights together.”
Her musical blend of reggaeton, bossa nova, R&B, hip-hop, EDM, and funk carioca, has positioned Anitta as one of the biggest Brazilian pop stars in the world. As the most-streamed artist in Brazil, Anitta counts with renowned collaborations including J Balvin, Snoop Dogg, DJ Snake, and more.
On the Billboard charts, Anitta has entered the Hot Latin Songs, Latin Airplay, and Latin Rhythm Airplay charts. Her trilingual studio album Kisses, released April 5, 2019, entered the Top Latin Albums and Latin Pop Albums, where it debuted at No. 4 on the chart dated April 20, 2019.
Anitta was set to take both the Coachella and Rock in Rio stages in 2020, both postponed due to the current health crisis. Under Warner Records, Anitta will launch her official U.S. debut album, produced by hitmaker Ryan Tedder, coming later this year.
