Friday (September 18) saw the release of “Me Gusta,” the latest bilingual bop to come from the Brazilian pop star. Influenced by Latin urban and pop vibes, the song is carried by a nasty funk rhythm with even naughtier verses, as Anitta and the Bronx-born rapper brag about what sexual tendencies drive them wild. The song, featuring Spanish and English lyrics, also sees the Dominican superstar flexing her bilingual flow.
“He like to eat the cake like it's my b-day,” Cardi raps. “To' lo día' es mi cumpleaño’/ Boy, I like it rough, don't take it easy/ Gangsta, yeah, I like it in the bando.”
Anitta also accompanied the song’s release by unveiling the Daniel Russell-directed visual, which features the songbird busting dance moves in various colorful outfits. Cardi and Towers also appear in the visual, with Bardi baring skin in an eye-catching purple ensemble as the Puerto Rican rapper grooves as Anitta rips a local runway strip.
“Me Gusta” is the 27-year-old singer’s newest song to come following her Arcángel- and De La Ghetto-assisted jam "Tócame" and her collaboration, “Rave de Favela,” featuring MC Lan, Major Lazer and Beam.
As for Cardi and Towers, this is the former’s second collaboration of the year after releasing her record-breaking “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion, which ascended to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The “Diosa” trap musician has put out a variety of tracks this year, including “La Curiosidad,” “Caramelo,” and the remix to “La Jeepeta.”
