Duendy Primeiro and Maristela Muller were caught leaving Excelsior Radio station in Bahia. The controversial artistic couples collaboration has raised eyebrows in Brazil for challenging cultural and racial stereotypes.
Speculation has been widespread that the artists not only have an artistic collaboration but also a personal one although this is yet to be confirmed by either Duendy Primeiro or Maristela Muller. However, their on-screen chemistry as well as their obvious friendship has made people wonder if there is more going on than meets the eye in their new track ‘Ela me Encantou’. The song is part of a Trilogy of songs and videos charting the relationship of a Black man from the Favela and a White woman from the other side of the tracks. You could call it a Brazilian ‘Westside story’ without the gangs.
So far the track has been met with widespread critical acclaim but has yet to make it onto mainstream radio begging the question if the collaboration and storyline have perhaps ruffled a few feathers.
We covered the single and what it means earlier this month with an article explaining why this collaboration and song are groundbreaking.
