Anitta has been working non-stop after dropping her new single “Me Gusta” in collaboration with Cardi B and Myke Towers.

On Thursday (Sept. 24), the Brazilian superstar presented the star-studded collab with a special performance at the MTV MIAW awards, held in Brazil. Singing her latest bop at the city of Salvador, Anitta rocked a hot pink-sequined dress with flowers and pearls and was joined by a vibrant group of dancers. Cardi and Towers made cameos in hologram versions.

In addition, Anitta nabbed the award for musical artist. “Thank you all so much,” she expressed on Instagram. “I'm tired but full of gratitude in my heart.”

Known as the MTV Millennial Awards Brazil, the awards show, which launched in 2018, celebrates music, TV, and social media stars.

This year, Lady Gaga nabbed two awards: Global hit for her Ariana Grande-assisted track “Rain on Me” and best international feature for “Sour Candy” with BlackPink.

“We want to thank all of our fans over in Brazil,” she said in a video message. “I have such a special relationship with my Brazilian little monsters. Your culture is so beautiful. Your authenticity always shines and I’m so grateful you're willing to share your shine with me.”

Other wins of the night included the devoted BTS Army in the real official fandom category and Pabllo Vittar nabbing the anthem of the year for “Amor de Que.”
