Wesley Safadão Essentials

Wesley Safadão—real name Wesley Oliveira da Silva—has kept sertanejo at the forefront of Brasil's music scene. The genre's roots may date back to the 1920s, but his exuberant, high-octane performances have modernised the style for a new generation of partygoers. On raucous, feel-good anthems like “Você Partiu Meu Coração” with singer Anitta and funk carioca MC Nego Do Borel strains of traditional classical guitar and buoyant horns form the backbone for a revved-up sound, and Safadão's charismatic, booming voice really gets the blood pumping.
