Rosalía has shared a new one-off single she’s been performing during her world tour behind her new album Motomami. It’s called “Despechá.” Give it a listen below.
“There are many ways to be Despechá, in this theme it is from the freeness or the craziness, moving without reservations or regrets,” Rosalía said in a translated statement. “This is the place from where I make music, from where I did it when I first started and where I will continue to until God says so. I’m grateful for having been able to travel in recent years and have learned from music from other places including the DR, where artists like Fefita La Grande, Juan Luis Guerra and Omega have inspired me and without them this song would not exist.”
