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

Cabello Working with Major Lazer on New Music

Camila Cabello is apparently Lazer-focused on her solo career…

Major Lazer are dishing some major details about their studio time with the 20-year-old Cuban singer and former Fifth Harmony member.

In an exclusive interview with Billboard Dance on Tuesday, the dance supergroup divulged more about their forthcoming collaborations Cabello.

The trio’s founder Diplo has teased their studio time together multiple times on Snapchat, the latest being back in January alongside Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat.

And it seems the year-long stream of social media snippets resulted in a lot of unreleased material between them.

“We made like 20 songs with Camila Cabello,” Diplo says. “We love her.”

Diplo confirmed that there is a particular track in mind, set for release in the near future, but that “until we have the video and the song is on iTunes, you never know.” He adds, “But of course we have stuff with her. She’s done stuff with a lot of our friends, like Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco, Frank Dukes — a lot of great producers we work with.”

There’s a good reason Camila has developed a close working relationship with the powerhouse trio: In the midst of her skyrocketing fame, she feels grounded when she’s with them. “Sometimes we just take for granted because we’re old, we’re not even famous,” Diplo says. “When you’re young and you’re that amazing and famous like that, it’s hard to live and be normal. When we’re with her, she enjoys that time because we take her places where she can enjoy herself. We love her, her voice is amazing. We’ve done many demos.”
