As she continues to make the rounds with her new single “Girl From Rio,” Anitta took center stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with a retro-inspired performance Tuesday night (May 4).

As part of the show’s Mercedes-Benz Concert Series, the Brazilian pop star presented her new single live from Miami’s The Goodtime Hotel, where she was wearing a pink headband and light-colored romper and was joined by four dancers and a male model dressed as a sailor.

Fusing traditional bossa nova with trap melodies, the English-language track samples the timeless 1962 hit “Garota de Ipanema” (“The Girl From Ipanema”) and pays tribute to Brazilian women.

“I’m so happy,” she previously told Billboard. “It’s my favorite song ever that I have done in my life. I want people to get to know Brazil and my music.”
