How to translate "Mas que nada"
Dear Portuguese speakers (or speakers of any other language who know this :)),
Could you translate the phrase from a very famous song - "Mas que nada" - into English? It would also be very kind of you, if you could record the slow pronunciation of the phrase and how you usually pronounce it in a casual way.
In Brazilian Portuguese slang, mas que nada (literally, "but, that [is] nothing") means "come on", "no way", "Whatever", or "Yeah, right!" In many recordings, the title song is colloquially spelled "Mais que nada", Portuguese for "more than nothing".
The title should not be confused with the Spanish más que nada meaning "more than anything" - in the sense of "mainly" or "principally".
