Larissa de Macedo Machado, known as Anitta, has become one of Brazil’s brightest pop stars in Latin music and beyond. By proudly singing in Portuguese, Spanish and English, she has helped Brazilian culture reach a global audience.
The eight-time Latin GRAMMY ® nominee made history earlier this year when her Spanish-language single “Envolver” topped the Global Top 50 chart on Spotify, making Anitta the first Brazilian singer and the first solo Latin artist to do so.
She is nearing a decade since she signed with Warner Music Brazil to release her self-titled debut album. With her breakthrough album, 2015’s Bang , she established herself as one of Brazil’s top artists. In 2017, she made her Spanish-language debut with “Paradinha” and later “Downtown” with J Balvin.
Anitta has since gone on to collaborate with artists around the world like Cardi B, Maluma, Major Lazer, Alesso, Iggy Azalea and Nile Rodgers, amongst others. She extended her reach beyond Brazil with the trilingual album Kisses in 2019. This year’s Versions of Me album has made her a global star.

In 1998, Fonsi released his first studio album, the aptly titled Comenzaré . Since then, he has taken Latin music to new heights and broken many records while leading the charts.
In 2017, Fonsi released the global hit “Despacito” with Daddy Yankee, which became a Latin pop culture phenomenon leading the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 16 weeks. The 55-times Platinum hit won Song of the Year and Record of the Year at the 18th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards 6 ® .
His subsequent album Vida was certified double diamond for more than 1.3 million copies sold in the United States alone. Fonsi has collaborated with Juan Luis Guerra, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Ozuna, Laura Pausini, Juan Gabriel, Christina Aguilera, Eros Ramazzotti and Rauw Alejandro, amongst many others.
His latest album Ley de Gravedad arrived earlier this year debuting Top 10 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums and registering 975 million combined streams on the different digital platforms where Fonsi has a total of 42.7 billion combined streams.
