Anitta Shakes Her A** At The MTV VMA’s: Look + Listen

Performing her hit “Envolver,” Brazilian phenom Anitta hit the MTV Video Music Awards stage Sunday evening (8.28.)

Dressed in a skin tight red catsuit, the sexy chanteuse (born Larissa de Macedo Machado) twerked and strutted her way across the stage with her backup dancers before asking the crowd, “Did you think I wasn’t going to shake my ass?” The Versions of Me hitmaker subsequently showed off her assets backed by “Bola Rebola,” her collaboration with J Balvin and Tropkillaz.

Though she recorded a rendition of “Girl From Río” as part of a Burger King TV advert that ran during the awards show in 2021, last night’s appearance marked Anitta’s first time performing at the VMAs.

Following her performance, Anitta returned to the stage to accept the award for best Latin video for “Envolver,” beating out Bad Bunny’s “Tití Me Preguntó,” Becky G and Karol G’s “Mamiii,” Daddy Yankee’s “Remix,” Farruko’s “Pepas,” and J Balvin and Skrillex’s “In Da Getto.”

During her acceptance speech, she reflected on her humble beginnings in Brazil stating “I really wasn’t expecting that. I think I’m gonna cry,” and noting that it was the first time a Brazilian artist was recognized at the VMAs she added “We never would think this was possible.”
