Anita Ward Drops Clues: Is Her Legendary Track 'Ring My Bell' Ringing in Grand Theft Auto 6? Fans Decode the Spotify Teaser!

Renowned artist Anita Ward may have just dropped a subtle hint about her involvement in Grand Theft Auto 6, sparking fan speculation that one of her iconic songs, previously featured in GTA: San Andreas but sung by a different artist, might also make its way into GTA 6.

The first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6, released in December, was synced to the beats of "Love Is a Long Road," a 1989 song from Tom Petty's notable discography. While Anita Ward boasts a portfolio of hits, none quite compare to her disco rendition of "Ring My Bell" by American songwriter Frederick Knight, a chart-topping release in 1979 on both sides of the Pond.

The latest speculation gained momentum when Anita Ward's verified Spotify page updated its cover art to showcase the logo of the upcoming GTA 6, a change noted by Reddit user AlilBitTall in late February.

Although the GTA 6 logo appeared on the artist's channel without being linked to any specific track, fans are speculating that "Ring My Bell" is the likely candidate for inclusion in the game due to its association with Anita Ward and its strong '80s Miami vibes.

While "Ring My Bell" featured in GTA: San Andreas, it was a reggae rendition by Blood Sisters, not Ward's famous disco hit. Interestingly, Rockstar did not even license the reggae version for the 2021 re-release of the game, excluding it from the tracklist.

The emergence of the GTA 6 logo on Anita Ward's Spotify cover has fueled anticipation that the legendary singer is somehow involved in the game. Fans argue that her label wouldn't use the Rockstar title logo without permission, potentially hinting at legal implications. Some enthusiasts even speculate that Ward's "Ring My Bell" could be part of the second GTA 6 trailer, citing its perfect fit for the game.

However, the likelihood of a new GTA 6 trailer anytime soon seems slim, given Rockstar's historical trend of taking around a year to release second looks at their upcoming Grand Theft Auto titles. In the meantime, Ward's Spotify channel is experiencing a significant surge in popularity, jumping from 615,000 monthly listeners in late January to over 745,000 by February 24, possibly fueled by the GTA 6 buzz.
