Becky G Hops On Anitta’s ‘Kisses’ Track “Banana”
Brazilian pop goddess Anitta is gearing up to give us everything we want with the release of her audiovisual album Kisses. The project doesn’t drop until Friday (April 5), but she has already sent our wigs into orbit several times over. The album cover is an eye-popping work of art that sees the 25-year-old kissing a clone of herself. Meanwhile, the 10-song tracklist is shaping up to be incredibly promising. It features songs in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Not only that, but each song is also getting an accompanying music video. Talk about a literal feast for the senses. But that’s not all. Over the weekend, Becky G confirmed that was involved with the song “Banana.” We are not worthy.
The “Green Light Go” diva made the news official by sharing a behind the scenes photo from the music video on Instagram. “Nothing brings two women closer than the same BANANA,” she wrote. We don’t know much about the collab just yet. However, Anitta offered a bit of insight via an Instagram post of her own. According to a translation by Billboard, the song highlights Anitta’s cheeky personality. “This Anitta loves debauchery. Everything for her is dripping in sarcasm and humor,” she explained. “She always finds a way to joke about things. She likes to maintain her choices and way of life coated and protected by lots of fun and double meaning.”
Based on the promo photo (which sees the divas straddling an oversized banana), it looks like there should be plenty of double meaning in the video. All things considered, this may be my most anticipated song off the album. And it will be so nice to finally see the “Mala Mia” hitmakers (minus Maluma) on screen together. Check out Becky’s announcement below while we wait for Friday to arrive!
