Digital streaming giant Netflix will profile the life of Anitta, Brazil’s biggest pop star, in a biographical docuseries.

Vai Anitta will provide unfiltered access to the personal and intimate moments in the life of the 25-year-old singer while also highlighting her hectic daily routine, from building and managing her career to performing across Brazil to traveling the globe, and her interactions with fans via social media.

Anitta, born Larissa de Macedo Machado in Rio de Janeiro, was selected in 2017 by Billboard as the 15th most influential artist in the world via social networks, ahead of such artists as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Shakira and Rihanna.

Vai Anitta is produced by Los Angeles-based production and management company Shots Studios and is slated to premiere across the platform later this year.

With more than 29.4 million followers on Instagram and two billion views on YouTube, Anitta has fast become a rising global star since growing to national fame in 2013 after releasing the single “Show das Poderosas”. She has since reached success with such songs as “Downtown”, the first song by a Brazilian artist to be featured on the Spotify’s Top 20, and “Vai Malandra”, which made Anitta the first Brazilian ranked in the Top 25 Global Charts on Spotify.
