Anitta makes history and wins the award for “Best Latin Video” at the 2022 VMAs with “Envolver”
Anitta shone at the 2022 Video Music Awards winning the category of “Best Latin Video” with her hit, “Envolver”. The MTV Grand Prix took place this Sunday (28), in the United States.
This is the first time in history that a Brazilian artist manages to take home the famous “Silver Astronaut” from Music Television. Competition with Anitta was heavy: Bad Bunny, Becky G, Daddy Yankee, Farruko and J Balvin.
In her speech, the singer was very emotional. “I think I’m going to cry. Tonight is historic. It’s the first time that Brazil (is) here. I would like to thank my family and my fans”, said Anitta.
She also recalled performing funk on stage at the VMAs, a style often marginalized in her history. The Brazilian made a point of asserting her roots, remembering that she came from the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro.
