Rosalía is our first MTV PUSH of 2019!
Flamenco singer and pop star, Rosalía, is breaking new ground both scenically and creatively.
Gifted with an extraordinary voice and ability to create unique sounds, she’s attracted international figures such as Diplo, Charli XCX, Gorillaz, Emily Ratajkowski, Billie Eilish, and even the Kardashians.
This international acclaim has led to her working with Pharrell Williams (content not released yet) and J. Balvin, whose song ‘Brillo’, written and performed with Rosalía, is among his best-selling songs.
At the end of May 2018, she took a major step by releasing the single Malamente. Since then, the ‘Rosalía phenomenon’ has continually churned up new big surprises: shortly upon release, the song —racking up millions of streams so far—was Double Platinum-certified in Spain and Gold-certified in US Latin.
‘Malamente’ was just a sign of what was to come. A few days following the release of her sophomore album, El Mal Querer,‘Malamente’ won two Latin Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Song and Best Fusion/Urban Performance and the song hit #3 on Pitchfork’s Top 100 chart with the video being picked as “Video of the Year” by the same publication.
El Mal Querer, released on November 2nd 2018, has not only been #1 on the sales and streaming charts and Gold-certified, in the first week upon release in Spain, but it was also the most listened to album on Spotify Spain in the first 24 hours after its release and in its first week.
Two days after it’s release, she delivered a mind-blowing performance of “Malamente” on the MTV EMA stage, in Bilbao.
It looks like success is set to follow this Latin superstar in her career and we could not be happier to kick off 2019 with her as our PUSH artist!
