The expression Baile de Favela in Portuguese. Esse professor é Baile de Favela!

What is Baile de Favela?

Every Brazilian summer hit leaves its mark – some like Ai Se Eu Te Pego even achieve worldwide success. For that reason, pretty much everybody that has ever listened to Brazilian funk would surely recognize the iconic song Baile de Favela. But what exactly is a baile de favela? Do you know what the Baile de Favela lyrics mean in English? What does it mean when it’s used as an expression? Let’s find out!

‘Favela Funk Party’

Baile de favela — also often called baile funk — refers to a dance party held in a slum (favela). The type of music usually played at that sort of party is funk, which is a big part of the culture in big cities in Brazil, such as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. At a baile de favela you can find lots of people partying hard, drinking, twerking and dancing passinho.

Now if you think it’s impossible to experience a baile de favela without actually being in a favela, think again. In Rio, for example, the Baile da Gaiola was held just outside a slum. And in other countries with big Brazilian communities, bailes funk are special events organized every few months that often feature touring MCs, DJs and artists from Brazil.

Baile de Favela Lyrics

Ela veio quente, e hoje eu tô fervendo
Ela veio quente, hoje eu tô fervendo
Quer desafiar, não to entendendo
Mexeu com o R7 vai voltar com a xota ardendo
She came in hot, today I’m boiling
She came in hot, today I’m boiling
Wants to challenge, I don’t understand it
Messed with R7, she’ll go back with the pussy burning
(vai) Que o Helipa, é baile de favela
Que a Marconi, é baile de favela
E a São Rafael, é baile de favela
E os menor preparado pra foder
com a xota dela
(go) That Helipa is favela funk party
That Marconi is favela funk party
And São Rafael is favela funk party
And the minors are ready to fuck
with her pussy
(vai) Eliza Maria, é baile de favela
Invasão, é baile de favela
E as casinha, é baile de favela
E os menor preparado pra foder com a xota dela
(go) Eliza Maria is favela funk party
Invasion is favela funk party
And the little houses, it’s favela funk party
And the minors are ready to fuck with her pussy
(vai) Que o Hebron, é baile de favela
A bailão, é baile de favela
E na rua 7? Baile de favela!
E os menor preparado pra foder
com a xota dela
(go) That Hebron is favela funk party
The Bailão is favela funk party
And on 7th street? Favela funk party!
And the minors are ready to fuck
with her pussy
(vai) Ela veio quente, hoje eu tô fervendo
Ela veio quente, hoje eu tô fervendo
Quer desafiar, não to entendendo
Mexeu com o R7 vai voltar com a xota ardendo
(go) She came in hot, and today I’m boiling
She came in hot, today I’m boiling
Wants to challenge, I don’t understand it
Messed with R7, she’ll go back with the pussy burning
