The 'WAP' hitmaker and the Brazilian singer will unleash their collaboration this Friday (18.09.20), and the former admitted as soon as she heard the track she jumped at the chance to feature on it.
Cardi tweeted: “I really love this song. When I first heard this song – you know me, I have to hear a song like three times. I don’t get on a song the same day I hear it, I got to listen to it a couple of times.
“As soon as I heard his song … I kept repeating the hook in my head.”
Anitta had already teased the track and that it will feature "another amazing" artist along with rapper Myke Towers, leaving her fans to guess who it was.
She wrote: "Okay... now everybody knows "Me gusta" is coming next Friday.
Also everybody knows @myketowerspr is featuring on that.
What you DON'T know (and also I didn't until last week when my manager surprised me) is that we had another AMAZING artist join the track. Any guesses? (sic)"
Anitta - who previously collaborated with Madonna on the track 'Faz Gostoso' from the Queen of Pop's 2019 comeback album 'Madame X' - and the 'I Like It' hitmaker previously teased fans about a collaboration by sharing snaps of them together in the studio last summer.
Anitta captioned the picture: "Yep... I think I just found my soul mate ... Oi, Brasil, o bonde das funkeiras vai crescer, bom dia. @iamcardib (sic)"
