Anitta teams up with the legendary Missy Elliott for her latest single, ‘Lobby’. Speaking to Zane Lowe’s Apple Music, the young artist shared her excitement at having the musical icon jump on the bandwagon with her. “When Ryan Tedder did this song and sent it to me … I loved it from the first page, it was crazy. And then right after that … I wanted Missy on a song, but I never thought it would be possible . I mean… I don’t know… she just said yes! She heard the song and said yes,” she explained. “She was looking for all my other works and my music and my songs. She just said yes and I couldn’t believe it! When I got the verse and heard it, I was like “OH MY GOD!” I jumped out of bed and was like “OH MY GOD” and when she came to shoot the music video I cried when she got there. I was crying, I was like “I can’t believe this is happening.”
