ROSALIA IS CURRENTLY YOUTUBES MOST VIEWED FEMALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR

Already boasting multiple “Best Song of the Year” picks and still reeling from countless praises from her North American concert series. Rosalia is the female face that is making Spanish music a global hit!

The sensational track was nominated for a Teen Choice Award, for ‘Choice Latin Song’ and has just surpassed the 500 million view-mark on YouTube and was a spotlight-feature in the New York Times; “Diary of a Song.”

Watch Rosalía Make Her Hit ‘Con Altura’ …one of the hottest international songs of the summer. In a recent summer week, the most popular video on YouTube was not from Taylor Swift or Lil Nas X, but from a cadre of international musicians leading a global tidal wave of Spanish-language music. ‘Con Altura,’ by the Catalonian singer Rosalía, with J Balvin (Medellín, Colombia) and El Guincho (Canary Islands), is now approaching half a billion views for its music video— it has another 155 million plays on Spotify — and as it topped the YouTube chart in late June, it led a crop of 8 Spanish songs in its Top 10. This is the new order of things in the increasingly diverse, genre-melding, multilingual world of pop: Language is no longer a barrier, world rhythms mix and cohere, cross-cultural collaboration is common and hip-hop influence seeps in from all sides.”- NY TIMES

Over the past few months the young Spanish artist has been the talk of the town. Selling out all of her North American Shows and most recently receiving the, Antonio Banderas Performing Arts Award; during a gala in Spain. The award was created by ESAEM – High School of the Performing Arts in Malaga, Banderas’ home town. While in attendance, the songstress was visibly moved by students’ performance of her songs. She later spoke saying that the most important thing to do is have faith in yourself and to love and sacrifice for what you want. Antonio Banderas praised Rosalía as “The Future of the Performing Arts in Spain” as he personally honored the groundbreaking artist.

The resent release of her Flamenco bundle and video “Fucking Money Man” (“Milionària” & “Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero”) has been a trending topic on Twitter, throughout Spain and was declared the weeks best new track.

Rosalia’s First Single in Catalan Goes Viral… The rumba-inspired ‘Milionaria’ and ‘Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero’ were released Wednesday evening in a video on YouTube called ‘Fucking Money Man,’ which got 1.6 million views and over 9,000 comments in 12 hours.” – Latin American Herald Tribune
