Brazil’s biggest pop star, who occupies a spot on TIME Magazine’s prestigious TIME100 Next 2021 list and has a highly anticipated bilingual album on the way later this year, discusses the sociology of funk, the strength of the Latin American and the “locomotive” !
To Funk’s reflection of Brazil:
“[Funk carioca] It’s the sauce I drink every day. I love to see and hear a new artist in the genre and to deal with new beats and lyrics. Funk says a lot about the periphery and the favelas [slums]. The Brazilian point of view and our sensuality. There is no way to stand still and hear the funk beat. “

On * this * music video:
“I was on vacation in Aspen and one day I was walking down a mountain and listening to music [latest single ‘Loco’] alone I thought it would be amazing to bring something crazy into this scenario! I thought of girls in bikinis walking down the hill enjoying parties on the sidelines. Within two days of getting the idea, we were recording in Aspen. I drove my team crazy. “
About the Power of Latina America:
“The strength of Latinos grows worldwide as the world realizes the richness of culture and the importance of the Latin people who are often employed in subjugated situations. A new generation of artists and the Latin people themselves are growing and appearing in a situation of power and bringing places of prominence and inspiration with them, preserving spaces and strengthening the appearance of artistic works in the mainstream cycle. “
