On Wednesday (Jan. 23), Anitta shared the news that she is the first Brazilian artist to release "Spotify Singles," dropping two songs that were recorded at the Spotify studios in New York City. One was an acoustic version of her recent single “Veneno” and the other was her sensual, fierce rendition of Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next.”

“I loved the invitation,” she wrote on Instagram. “Go check it out, people. I have not stopped listening since I recorded it.” (Listen to both tracks below.)

In addition to her Spotify sesh, an Anitta collaboration with Brazilian artist MC Kevinho is on the way, Billboard has learned.

The single, according to a Warner Music Latin rep, is an all-Portuguese funk/pop track called “Terremoto.” The upcoming music video, directed by João Papa, who also directed the three music videos for her SOLO EP, is a remake of Sean Paul’s “I’m Still in Love.”
