In celebration of the first anniversary of her album El Mal Querer, Spanish singer Rosalía has dropped a new song called “A Pale, today (Nov. 7).
“A Pale,” co-produced by trio of Rosalía, El Guincho and Frank Dukes, “takes its name from the nearly ubiquitous wooden shipping pallets Rosalía was surrounded by for years growing up in an area outside Barcelona dominated by trucking industry,” a release explains, “but the spirit of the song centers around ‘doing it big’ — our ability to be strong and carry a lot of weight.”
Fittingly, the clip was filmed in a warehouse, and directed by Jora Frantzis.
On “A Pale,” the singer fusions her flamenco with contemporary global rhythms, stepping aside from the reggaeton beat from some of her other recent releases, like “Con Altura” with J Balvin and El Guincho and “Yo X Ti, Tu X Mi” with Ozuna.
