Rosalía Releases Travis Scott-Collaboration “TKN”

Great Scott !Rosalía is back with another Travis Scott collaboration…

Late last year, the 26-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter and current ELLE magazine cover girl joined voices with Scott on the remix of his single “Highest in the Room.”

Now they’re back with their second collaboration, the bilingual track “TKN.” It’s Rosalia’s third single of 2020.

“TKN” is a reggaeton-infused fight song, issuing a bit of Mafia wisdom as well as a warning. “There are levels for everything in this life/We don’t fuck with people we don’t know,” spits Rosalía. Stoic as a mob boss, she cites the Omertà, or the Sicilian law of silence. “No new friends or new wounds,” she and Scott sing together in Spanish.

Directed by Nicolás Méndez, one half of the Spanish producer duo Canada, the new video stars Rosalía as the den mother to an unruly wolf pack of children — leading with a look-alike of Stormi, Scott and Kylie Jenner’s two-year-old daughter. The children brush Rosalía’s hair and muss it up all the same, roaming the streets of Los Angeles anarchically as Scott looks on.

While currently quarantined in Miami, Rosalía has been working on the follow-up to her Grammy-winning album, 2018’s El Mal Querer.The song with Scott, however, has been in the works for more than a year. 

“There are artists that when they come into the room, everybody … gets smaller,” she told Zane Lowe on the latest episode of Apple Music’s Beats 1. “But with Travis, it’s not like that. It’s not like that. Everybody flows with him, he’s flowing, and it’s beautiful like that. And I think that he’s very special and that we had a lot of fun.”

In March, Rosalía released “Dolerme,” an urban-infused alternative rock song about changing for someone who’s not worth it.

Rosalia announced the new collaboration via a social media post shared Monday, May 25 with the caption “It’s coming TKN.”

Rosalia didn’t reveal many details about the song, including when it will be released or what it will sound like. But in a previous interview with Apple Music, the “Con Altura” singer said that she initially planned to release a “super aggressive” club song with the rapper, but “didn’t feel like it was right to release, and I didn’t feel like it was connected with what was going on in the world at that moment.”

“TKN” follows Rosalía’s feature on Scott’s “Highest in the Roomremix released in December, which also featured Lil Baby.

The upcoming collaboration also won’t be the first time she releases new music while sheltering in place in Miami. 

In March, Rosalía released “Dolerme,” an urban-infused alternative rock song about changing for someone who’s not worth it.
