The Mixtape Everyone Keeps Talking About Comes From Three Female Brazilian Rappers

Pearls Negras

Pearls Negras. Maybe you’ve seen that name on Twitter, but you didn’t know what it meant, or if “it” was an expression or a person. Well, Pearls Negras is actually a trio of teenage women who hail from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. And they’re a helluva lot of fun to listen to. Here’s how Stereogum describes them:

I don’t know much about Pearls Negras, a trio of three teenage rappers from Brazil. I don’t know if they’re a straight-up baile funk phenomenon or a cannily marketed offshoot that’s being shopped to American and European tastemakers. They rap in Portuguese, so I don’t even know what they’re rapping about, though I’d guess that most of their lyrics are some version of “I’m awesome.” I do, however, know that their new mixtape Biggie Apple is a delirious 21-minute blast of energy, and I’m happy to have it in my life.

It’s hyper and fun and if songs were colors, “Pensando em Você” would look like a bag of Skittles.
