Rio,Sept5:Brazilian singer Anitta released her seductive first English-language single “Will I See You” to mark her collaborator Poo Bear‘s birthday today (Sept. 4).
“I’m really excited to finally show everyone what we’ve been working on” says Anitta. “Poo Bear is very talented and we had a lot of fun making this song. This was a new challenge for me, but I enjoyed it and I’m happy with what we made.”
The 24-year-old star is currently working on her debut English-language album which will feature artists including J Balvin and Alesso, as well as additional collaborations with Poo Bear.
In July, Billboard Dance exclusively broke the news that Anitta had signed with Los Angeles-based company Shots Studios, whose roster includes entertainers like Lele Pons and Rudy Mancuso.
“Anitta is incredible and has a very special voice. It’s easy to see why she’s so influential in Brazil and I have no doubt that America is going to love her, too,” says Poo Bear. “It doesn’t matter if it’s English or Spanish or Portuguese, Anitta is an entertainer that isn’t slowed down by any language barriers.”
The song’s music video was filmed in São Paulo, Brazil as part of her Checkmate campaign to release monthly singles in either English, Spanish or Portuguese. Check it out below:
