Background and development
Diplo, who has always proved to be one of the great supporters of Brazilian funk and Brazilian music, had a great influence on his music. He had previously worked on songs by DJ Marlboro and even contracted the musical group Bonde do Rolê for his label Mad Decent, in addition to collaborating in the production with songs by Banda Uó and Pabllo Vittar. He says: “I always try to know what happens in Brazil, it’s important for me.”
In his coming to Brazil for the Lollapalooza of 2016 with group Jack Ü, that maintains with Skrillex, he met the singer Anitta. The singer then handed her a demo, which later became the track. In February 2017, Diplo replied on his Twitter about a possible partnership with singer Anitta saying only “soon”. Already Anitta announced the partnership on a live broadcast on their Instagram. Anitta and Pabllo Vittar performed a photographic essay on May 21, from which the art of illustration for the song was extracted.
