Introducing: Pearls Negras – Brazil’s baddest new rap group

We don’t know about you, England, but Brazil is shaking that stinging World Cup defeat off with Pearls Negras.

The Brazilian trio is one of the country’s hottest new acts, quickly making a name for themselves for spitting raw attitude-driven rap over gritty club and trap beats.

They’re rocking a sound that MIA and producer Diplo have referenced over the years, so it’s really not a stretch to imagine Pearls Negras’ tunes being blasted in sweaty underground clubs around Europe.

Meet 17-year old Alice and 16-year old Jeni and Mari, the fierce teens stars who adore Nicki Minaj and like to rap about parties, love and social issues. Y’know, the stuff that matter.

The girls met years ago at an after school theatre program in Rio de Janeiro’s hip Vidigal favela. They’re all working actresses in Brazil. So when they’re not gracing the small screen in their day jobs, these girls are slaying rhymes in clubs.

How’s that for multi-talented and multi-busy? They’re set to embark on a European tour soon. So stay tuned!

Check out Pearls Negras’ hot single ‘Pesando em Você’, which means ‘Thinking of You’ in Portugese.
