Anitta Teases a DJ Khaled Collaboration at Latin Grammys: Watch

Anitta caught up with Billboard’s Leila Cobo on the red carpet at the 2018 Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday (Nov. 15), chatting about her nomination for “Downtown” and her potential collaboration with DJ Khaled.

Speaking of her nominated track, Anitta was asked if she ever thought it would earn a Latin Grammy nod, to which she replied, “Actually, yes.”

“A lot of people told me no, but I said I’m pretty sure what I’m doing, and I loved ‘Downtown’ since the first time I heard it,” she said. “But if I don’t get it, I’m really happy cause ‘Downtown’ gave me so many things in my life, I can’t complain. I have no reasons to complain.”

Anitta was also asked if she and DJ Khaled have something in the works. As it so happens, they've been talking because he wants to know more about funk music. “He told me he’s up to do something together,” she added, “So we’re ready.”
