“Rosalía is our Beyoncé… We saw a concert that has gone down in the history of the music of our country, and we analyze the phenomenon of this young woman who mixes flamenco, electronics and urban music like nobody else… an electrifying nervousness crossed the audience of the Festival Cultura Inquieta. We were waiting for HER… and Rosalía did not disappoint-offering a complete, magical and extraordinary show… ‘Malamente’ has become a generational symbol, a sign of what Rosalía is, and can become… Rosalía devoured the stage with her sensuality… the choreography leaves us speechless… I have never seen anything like it” – Telva (translated)
Everyone is talking about Rosalía’s new video ‘Malamente’ – which you will play on loop. There is something in Rosalía which brings to mind Rihanna. It is in her attitude… Only this diva is Spanish. Rosalía recently surprised with Brillo (her collaboration with J Balvin) a feminist anthem of the 21st century – then returned to thrash the Internet with Malamente. Is it possible to mix trap and flamenco, a fusion of tango and urban pop? Malamente gives an affirmative answer… and the video clip is one of the best we’ve seen in 2018… Long live the millennial queen of flamenco.” – VOGUE
