Rosalía Updates on Her Song With Billie Eilish & Imagines What a Frank Ocean Collab Might Sound Like

Rosalía caught up with Billboard on the red carpet at the 2020 Grammy Awards, chatting about her friendship with Billie Eilish, working with Travis Scott, and wanting to collaborate with Frank Ocean.

In the interview, Rosalía is asked what she appreciates most about Billie Eilish. “I think that she is a super talented musician…and she has this pure soul," she says. "She's open, and when I was with her on the studio, I remember she was super inspired and she was sharing all the time. She was playing on the piano. She's a very creative mind and a very good friend.”

Speaking of being in the studio with Eilish, Rosalía is asked when fans might be able to expect the collaboration the pair has been teasing. “Let's ask Billie,” she replies with a laugh, “Cause I recorded my vocals, and I'm waiting, I'm waiting that we have maybe more time to go to the studio and finish it. Cause, yeah, I think that it's a very beautiful song that we have together.”

Rosalía is also asked how she ended up working with Travis Scott on the “Highest in the Room” remix, and she reveals that he texted her asking if she’d be interested in working on the rework.  

“He knows I'm a huge fan of him,” she adds. “I went to the studio, I started writing, and then he just came there, like, he just appeared. And then we hang out there in the studio, and we had fun. It was great.”

When it comes to collaborations, there is one other artist Rosalía would love to join forces with. Seeing as she’s a fan of Frank Ocean, the singer is asked what a possible Frank Ocean- Rosalía track might sound like.

“It would sound like fire,” she says. “Really, that's it. That's how it would sound, I think…Frank, let's do it, let's do it.”
