Anitta Has Gone From the Girl From Rio to Global Superstar

Eight times the birthday girl has wowed us with her looks.

Anitta has more than a birthday to celebrate! A few days ahead of turning 29 on March 30, it was announced that she is the first Brazilian to hit No. 1 on Spotify’s global chart with her song “Envolver”. “Number 1 in the world. I really don’t know what to say,” she expressed on Twitter. “THE FIRST LATIN WOMAN TO BE NUMBER ONE SOLO IN THE WORLD. The only Brazilian in the history of my country to have a top 5 song in the world. Oh my God.”

There’s no doubt that in the 10 years since her first single was released in 2012, the girl from Rio is now a global sensation. Don’t believe us? Just ask her almost 100 million followers across Instagram, TikTok and Twitter. Since the beginning, she has entertained in venues big and small showcasing her music and incredible fashion flair – she even performed at the SI Swimsuit Launch party last July, having appeared in the 2021 issue. Most recently, she had fans going crazy when she joined Miley Cyrus on stage at Lollapalooza Brazil.

With her final year of her 20s off to a great start, she will be bringing that same energy and over-the-top style to Coachella when it starts on April 15. Before then, let’s revisit some of her most memorable ensembles on and off stage.
