Vittar’s innate swagger and powerful vocals have seen her collaborate with high-profile music acts like Major Lazer, Charli XCX, Sofi Tukker, Anitta, and Diplo. Flash Pose, Vittar’s first single from her highly anticipated third album 111, is already on regular rotation on dance floors around the world and has racked up an impressive 18 million views online.

An outspoken advocate, Vittar uses her platform as a popstar to demand equality for LGBTQI communities in Brazil and beyond, fusing the personal with the cultural and political, and refusing to hide who she is to the world.
