Why Brazilian singer Ludmilla should be your new queer obsession

It’s time to add Brazilian superstar Ludmilla to your next playlist.

Every April, thousands flock to the Coachella Valley for the hottest music and arts festival named after the valley itself. Desert heat won’t stop music fans from enjoying some of the entertainment industry’s brightest acts, like Tinashe, Reneé Rapp, Ice Spice, Tyler the Creator, Le Sserafim, Victoria Monét, and more. But one name music lovers should remember is Ludmilla.

Born Ludmila Oliveira da Silva, the 28-year-old went from singing YouTube covers to performing Coachella sets. Speaking of the festival, Ludmilla is the first Afro-Latina to grace Coachella’s main stage. Known to bring her Brazilian heritage to each performance, Ludmilla’s never shies away from giving her fans ample funk, pop merengue, and pagode in her music.

Did we mention that Beyoncé introduced her at Coachella? Iconic.

Ludmilla cites Queen Bey as one of her main influences and even covered Beyoncé’s smash hit “Halo” on one of her albums. Speaking of music, some of Ludmilla’s most recent hits include “Macetando,” “No Se Ve,” and “Socadona.” And while she has an immense fanbase and a social media following of 35 million on Instagram alone, she also has the accolades to back it up, having won two Latin Grammys.

Now, she’s blessed Coachella with her artistry. Ludmilla’s energetic set was also joined by her wife, Brunna Gonçalves. Ludmilla married Gonçalves in 2019 and the singer’s song “Maldivas” is all about her love (and lust) for her partner. You can check out their chemistry below.

We love to see it. Now, with a new song, “Piña Colada,” a Beyoncé blessing, and a historic Coachella performance under her belt, the sky is the limit for Ludmilla. Check out more of her music below.
