Superstar Brazilian artist Anitta is parting ways with Warner Music Group.
Since breaking through in Brazil a few years ago, Anitta has become one of the world’s most prominent Latin music artists.
In a joint statement issued by Warner and Anitta on Tuesday (April 4), they said: “After eleven years of successful partnership, we’ve agreed to go our separate ways.
The statement added: “Anitta would like to thank the Warner Music team for all their support. And the Warner team wishes Anitta all the best in future.”
Anitta signed with Warner Music Brazil in 2013 off the back of her breakthrough single Show das Poderosas.
A string of Platinum-selling albums followed and huge hits including Blá blá blá, Downtown (with J Balvin), Girl From Rio, Me Gusta (featuring Cardi B and Myke Towers or 24kGoldn), Paradinha, and Zen.
Anitta then signed with Warner Records in 2020.
At the time, Anitta said in a statement that the deal was “the most important moment in my career”.
She added: “Now, I can show more about my art and culture to the world internationally. I can’t wait for everyone to hear all the new music I’ve been working on, which will be a fresh blend of both Spanish and English.”
The artist’s fifth studio album, the multilingualVersions of Me, came out last year.
The 15-track album was released in Spanish, English, and Portuguese and holds the record for the biggest streaming week for a Brazilian artist on Spotify.
Anitta is one of the most streamed artists in Brazil with over 23.1 million monthly listeners on the platform, and over 17 million YouTube subscribers.
Anitta’s body of work also includes four Latin studio albums and several collaborations.
She was nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s Grammy Awards, the first time a Brazilian artist had been nominated in the category in nearly 50 years.Music Business Worldwide
