Brazilian SuperStar Anitta Reprises Mary J Blige’s Classic “Real Love” In New Target Campaign


Today, global popstar Anitta releases “Amor Real,” a Spanish take on Mary J. Blige’s iconic hit “Real Love,” for Target’s new holiday campaign.

“Amor Real” comes after Anitta’s sizzling summer anthem “Me Gusta” featuring Cardi B and Myke Towers that’s made Anitta one of Brazil’s biggest breakout pop superstars. Paired with a stunning video, it’s a taste of her forthcoming album, which is executive produced by the award-winning Ryan Tedder.

On “Me Gusta,” the trio spill simmering verses over a humid guitar riff, flipping effortlessly between English and Spanish. Anitta’s gorgeous vocals float like a cloud, Cardi’s bars are stinging and self-assured, and Towers’ indelible tonality, flow and force prove to be the perfect counterpart for these two female powerhouses. It’s a song that begs for sweaty clubs and crowded beach parties — but for now, dancing in our bedrooms will do.

Announced today, Anitta will perform at the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards on Thursday, November 19th at 8pm on Univision, TNT, and Televisa.

On September 23, Anitta, flanked by Cardi and Towers, performed her television debut of “Me Gusta” on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The Brazilian phenomenon stayed busy this October, headlining the first-ever FIFA 21 World Celebration, performing at iHeart Radio’s Fiesta Latina 2020, and joining Billboard’s Latin Music Week Q&A with Ryan Tedder.

Me Gusta” is another impressive notch on Anitta’s belt with 140 million streams. It follows the July release of her single “Tócame,” featuring Arcangel and De La Ghetto, which has amassed over 67 million cumulative streams.

Earlier this summer, Anitta signed with Warner Records, the start of a fruitful partnership that has pushed her music even further. Boasting 5 Latin GRAMMY® Award nominations, 6 MTV EMA wins, nearly 5.1 billion YouTube views, and 4.4 billion Spotify streams. Anitta is already a star, and “Me Gusta” has the power to intensify her global shine even more.
