Rosalia Releases New Single “A Pale,” An Ode to Her Childhood in Barcelona

Rosalía is celebrating her roots in a special way…

In celebration of the first anniversary of her album El Mal Querer, the 26-year-old Spanish singer  has released a new song called “A Pale.”


Co-produced by Rosalía, El Guinchoand Frank Dukes, the songs “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 [the] 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,” Rosalia fuses her flamenco with contemporary global rhythms, stepping aside from the reggaeton beat from some of her other recent releases, like “Con Altura” with J Balvinand El Guincho and “Yo X Ti, Tu X Mi” with Ozuna
