After blessing us with urban-infused mainstream bops such as “Con Altura” and “Aute Cuture,” Rosalia returns to her experimental flamenco ways with “F*cking Money Man,” surprising her fans on Wednesday (July 3) with two new tracks in one.
In the video bundle, which includes “Milionaría” and “Dio$ No$ Libre del Dinero,” we enjoy the Rosalia essence that got on our radar with her 2018 El Mal Querer album: pop melodies with heavier rhythms on the modern flamenco side. In a nutshell, both songs are about God saving us from money. One features Catalan lyrics, the other is in Spanish.
“One day you want to be a millionaire and the next day burn everything, in reality, how much does money matter?” Rosalia stated in a press release. “It seems so pure to look for it as to deny it and I think we’ve all felt love-hate for money once.
“‘Milionària” is the first song I’ve composed and I published in Catalan, it’s also the first song I do inspired by Catalan rumba,” she continued. “I started it in Seville while I was waiting at the airport and I finished it in Barcelona. With good luck and some lagrimilla also…fuckin money man! “
Directed by Barbara Farre and with the co-creative direction of Rosalia, the music video, which premiered at 6:00 p.m. local time in Spain on July 3, gives us major game show-meets-infomercial vibes from the ’70s, showing Rosalia in a TV competition similar to The Price is Right.
