Anitta makes history, wins the award for best Latina at the 2022 MTV VMAs

Anitta made history on August 28 at the MTV VMAs. Following the performance of her hit song “Envolver” on Sunday, the artist accepted the award for Best Latin Music, presented by Ashley Graham. The victory of the “La Loto” singer marks the first time that a Brazilian artist has taken home the award for best Latin in the 38-year history of the awards. Previous winners include Aventura in 2010, Daddy Yankee in 2013, Rosalía and J Balvin in 2019, Maluma in 2020, and more. In shock at her victory, Anitta took a few moments to regain her composure as her fans congratulated her.

“I was born and raised in the ghetto of Brazil, and for whoever was born there, never [have thought] this was possible.”

“I really didn’t expect that. I think I’m going to cry,” Anitta began her speech. “I just want to say, for those who don’t know this, tonight is [history-making]. It is the first time that Brazil is here. It is the first time that someone from my country wins an award like this. [this], and I just want to thank my family and my fans. Tonight I performed a rhythm that, for many years in my country, was considered a crime. I was born and raised in the ghetto of Brazil, and whoever was born there, never [have thought] this was possible. Thank you very much.”

Midway through her sultry stage performance, Anitta addressed the crowd and said, “VMA, did you guys think I wasn’t going to shake my ass tonight?” Seconds later, the “Dançarina” singer was supported by a group of dancers who accompanied her moving to the rhythm of a funky dance. The rhythm of the street dance was criminalized in Brazil for many years, and in recent years discussions about banning music have been circulating again. But Anitta’s choreography and expert moves were met with huge applause from fans, making her victory all the more significant.

After her speech, Anitta met with entertainment tonight to reflect on the historical moment. “I’m going to put him in my bed. I’m going to sleep with him,” she said of her Moon Person statue. “We are making history tonight. It is the first time that my country [won] such an award. The funk part I did at the end of my set, the beat was literally considered a crime for so many years. Being able to come here, do it, was very special and I’m very happy.”
