Brazil: Ludmilla | Solta a Batida
Ludmila Oliveira da Silva (born April 24, 1995), best known as Ludmilla is a Brazilian singer and songwriter, who achieved fame in 2012 with song “Fala Mal de Mim”
Ludmilla began posting videos on YouTube . When one day she was at a party and aa friend that was a beat maker said he needed someone to sing. Ludmilla crushed it and everyone loved it.
Ludmilla’s music career took off after her breakout hit single “Fala Mal de Mim” (released as MC Beyoncé) posted on YouTube and went viral. The song was first posted in May 2012 and it has more than 17 million views. f you live in Brazil it’s almost impossible to not have heard the drum beat to MC Beyoncé’s hit “Fala Mal de Mim”; it’s been used in numerous songs of the funk carioca variety. One could argue that this simple drum pattern is currently more popular among funkeiras than the extremely popular James Brown “Funky Drummer” riff that was sampled by perhaps hundreds of Hip Hop producers in the late 1980s and 1990s. With that said, the popularity of MC Beyoncé (yet another black Brazilian female connected to the American superstar in some fashion) cannot be denied. As proof of this, tonight she is scheduled to appear in a one-on-one interview with highly respected journalist/TV host Marília Gabriela on Brazil’s SBT television network. Check the details below.
“On song writing : It’s instinct, I never even took a course in anything.”
