Everything You Need to Know About Rosalía, the Spanish Singer Who Conquered the World
Rosalía is the artist that everyone is talking about. Her most recent hit, "Yo x ti, Ty x Mi," featuring Ozuna is one of the best summer songs yet and one of her personal best. The "Con Altura" singer became the first Spaniard to win an award at the MTV Video Music Awards. The singer has been the center of attention in the music industry for several weeks now.
The most surprising thing is that her career as a soloist in the industry took place in 2016 and she's already a worldwide phenomenon. Rosalía's popularity has grown massively within the last year and here we will tell you how she became one of the most important personalities of music.
The first thing we have to emphasize about "La Rosalía" is that she has a dazzling talent and not only because of her fantastic voice, but also because she is a musician in all the extension of the word. Rosalía not only managed to study at the Superior School of Music of Catalonia, but also took classes with the prestigious flamenco teacher Chiqui de la Línea, who is characterized by accepting only one student per year.
This allowed her to make very important collaborations early in her career, with artists such as Juan Gómez "Chicuelo", Alfredo Lagos and Rocío Márquez, who are great flamenco personalities. However, she wanted to make the leap to commercial music and for that she had to enter a completely different world.
In 2016 she joined producer and musician Raúl Refree to record what would be her first album, entitled Los Angeles, which was focused entirely on flamenco and although it got her good reviews and a Latin Grammys nomination, she didn't really gain popularity until the release of her second album.
And it was precisely that second album that made her rise to fame, but convulsed music in Spain. This is the highly acclaimed El mal querer, in which in addition to flamenco, it incorporated elements of pop. Her single single "Malamente"(Badly), was quite successful and was the one that opened the doors to Rosalía.
It was from that album when she began to appear in important events such as the television show "Later ... with Jools Holland" in October 2018, in addition to the MTV European Music Awards and the Latin Grammys in November, which took place outside of Spain, particularly in the United States.
Then her collaboration options came very naturally, the first one came out in March of this year with J Balvin and the song was called "Con Altura" (With Height). Just a few weeks later, she made her first foray into Anglo-Saxon music with her collaboration in the single "Barefoot In The Park" by James Blake. Finally, there was the aforementioned duet with Ozuna, which made her rise to the top of the music industry.
