Rosalía: “Despechá”

This week we could not avoid one of the biggest events of the year: on thursday, the Annual Latin Grammy Awards will happen in Seville, for the first time outside the United States. The Spanish singer most prized ever is Alejandro Sanz, but maybe trendy music nowadays is perfectly represented by Rosalía, one of the top nominees of this season. We bring to you “Despechá”, a mambo-inspired track which is racing to be the “record of the year”. The song’s title translates to “despise” or “spiteful” in English. In the song, Rosalía sings about getting over a toxic relationship by hitting the club with her girlfriends and having a hedonistic night out. The song is a celebration of freedom and moving on without reservations or regrets. “Despechá” features merengue and electropop elements, being a hit in Spain, Uruguay, and Panama, and has topped Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

Rosalía is a Spanish singer who has been making waves in the music industry since the release of her second album, “El Mal Querer,” in 2018. Her music is a fusion of traditional flamenco with contemporary genres such as hip-hop, electro-pop, and R&B. Rosalía’s unique sound and style have earned her a global following and critical acclaim. She has won two Grammy Awards and twelve Latin Grammy Awards, including two Album of the Year wins. Rosalía’s music videos are known for their striking visuals and choreography. She has collaborated with artists such as J Balvin, Travis Scott, and Billie Eilish. Rosalía’s fashion sense is also noteworthy, as she often incorporates elements of traditional flamenco dress into her outfits.
