Anitta is the first Brazilian to win at the MTV VMAs – HOLA! USA

Latinos made history at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards! Bad Bunny became the first non-English-language performer to win Artist of the Year, and Anitta became the first Brazilian artist in history to win a prize at the VMAs.
The global sensation won in the Best Latin category, and while accepting the prize, she reflected on the importance and impact of the moment. “I just want to say, for whoever doesn’t know this, tonight, the history, the first time of Brazil here,” she said. “It’s the first time my country has ever been an award like that, and I want to say thank you for my family and for my friends.”
The 29-year-old also told the audience how her music used to be condemned by society. “And tonight, I performed here a rhythm that for many years in my country was considered a crime. I was born and raised in the ghetto of Brazil, and for whoever who was born there, we never would think this was possible. So thank you so much.”
Anitta recently collaborated with legendary rapper and hip hop icon Missy Elliot in the song “Lobby,” part of the deluxe edition of Anitta’s album Versions of Me. In July, the Brazilian singer revealed the news on Twitter. “Yes! I’m shooting my music video feat. @MissyElliott, and it’s not a dream.”
She also went to Instagram to share a photo of herself with the rapper. “I honestly can’t believe what’s happening right now,” she said.
