The deluxe edition of Versions of Me arrives ahead of Anitta’s debut performance at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, Aug. 28. She’s also up for one award, Best Latin” for “Envolver,” becoming the first Brazilian artist to be nominated for a solo project in VMA history.

Anitta dropped Versions of Me back in April, marking her first album in three years following 2019’s Kisses. In an interview with Rolling Stone, she spoke about her trilingual effort and her efforts to incorporate sounds and collaborators from around the world. “I love mixing cultures,” she said. “I think it’s so important… [It] makes people get more into the culture of different places and get to learn different things.”
