Delivering Brazilian Funk to the global stage, GRAMMY® Award-nominated international superstar Anitta proudly announces her anxiously awaited new album, Funk Generation, will be released on April 26, 2024 via Republic Records/Universal Music Latin Entertainment/Universal Music Canada. 

Fittingly, she heralds the album with a fiery new single and music video Double Team [feat. Brray & Bad Gyal] out now. 

Inspired by funk carioca and anchored by a dancefloor-ready thump, this Spanish banger, blended with Portuguese and English, doubles down on seduction with its raw and lusty lyrics and a slick back-and-forth between Anitta, Brray, and Bad Gyal. Produced by Botlok, it climaxes on an unshakable hook. The accompanying music video, directed by Sam Hayes, proves to be an equally sexy affair with jaw-dropping choreography featuring the three artists performing in an open-air baile funk atmosphere.

Funk Generation sees Anitta channel her most formative influences from her childhood in Brazil. As such, she conjures the spirit of classic Brazilian funk with her own personal twist perfect for a new GENERATION…  

About the record, Anitta said, “Funk Generation is an album where I celebrate my roots. It’s where I express the power of Rio’s funk in every track its unique, danceable, and sensual beats. It’s a rhythm born in the favelas, where I grew up, and it exudes resistance and art in every community. I’m proud to work on a project about a genre that has been unfairly stigmatized in Brazil but is slowly gaining recognition worldwide. In the album, I bring in important collaborations that helped me tell this story. I’ve been involved in every step of the production and visual direction, and I’ve achieved the result I’ve been aiming for.” 

At the forefront of introducing Brazilian Funk to the world, Anitta released Funk Generation: A Favela Love Story in 2023 as a precursor to this album which included fan favorites “Funk Rave,” “Used To be” and “Casi Casi.”  What’s more, her latest anthems “BELLAKEO” [with Peso Pluma], marks her highest-charting entry on the Billboard Hot 100 thus far, while “Joga Pra Lua” [with DENNIS & PEDRO SAMPAIO] has exploded around the globe. “Joga Pra Lua” generated 44.9 million Spotify streams and 19 million YouTube views on the music video, with Billboard raving, “It’s giving full ‘leave it all on the dance floor’ energy, and we simply love to hear it.” Rolling Stone promised, “YOU CAN COUNT on this trio of Brazilian superstars to bring the most fiery batidão tracks.  

Most recently, Anitta wrapped her Carnaval da Anitta Tour, travelling around her home country of Brazil, during its world-famous Carnival season.  The tour saw Anitta play to combined audiences of 2 Million fans in Brazil with media coverage around the world.
