Rosalía and The Weeknd have released their new single “La Fama.” The Weeknd sings in Spanish on the track, and in a statement translated into English, Rosalía said: “I wanted to write, in my own way, a bachata with a little story around ambition. Taking as a reference the lyrics of Rubén Blades or Patti Smith and the songs of Aventura, I ended up writing a story of romance with fame.”
The new single follows Rosalía’s appearance on a remix of The Weeknd’s hit song “Blinding Lights” last year. La Fama will appear on Rosalía’s new album Motomami, set to arrive in 2022. The LP will be the follow-up to her Grammy-winning breakout El Mal Querer from 2018.
