Rosalía stopped to chat with Billboard’s Jordyn Rolling on the red carpet at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards on Monday (Aug. 26) to discuss her excitement over performing at the event and why it means so much for her to be representing where she comes from.
The singer, who was nominated for three VMAs and took home the prize for best Latin music video with “Con Altura” with J Balvin and El Guincho, also took to the stage to perform alongside Ozuna later on in the evening.
Speaking with Billboard ahead of the performance, Rosalía said, “I’m so excited to be here today performing because I will be performing aside a lot of artists that I admire a lot, so I can’t wait.”
Asked how it feels to be at the event with other Latin artists such as Ozuna, Bad Bunny, and J Balvin, Rosalía notes that she feels “very grateful” and that coming from Barcelona, she is happy to be representing where she comes from.
“We are here and it’s amazing that we can sing in Spanish in a place like that, it’s magic,” she adds.
