Rosalía recently performed a special show at the Louvre as part of Paris Fashion Week – see the video below.

The Spanish singer delivered a short set for Louis Vuitton Men’s Fall-Winter 2023 Fashion Show, including the Motomami tracks ‘Candy’, ‘Saoko’, ‘CUUUUuuuuuute’ and ‘Despechá’. She also played ‘De Plata’ from her 2017 debut record Los Ángeles, and El Mal Querer song ‘DE AQUÍ NO SALES’.

Additionally, Rosalía curated a playlist of tunes by other acts that aired in between her own live performances.

The show saw the star sing atop a yellow lowrider car as models walked the catwalk. Tune in here:

Motomami, Rosalía’s third studio album, came out in March 2022. It’s since received a nomination in the Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album category for the Grammys 2023, which are due to take place in Los Angeles on February 5.

In December 2021, Rosalía became Rolling Stone en Español’s first-ever cover star, and in the interview discussed the meaning behind Motomami‘s title and its feminist themes. “The album title is a feminine name, even though “moto” is one thing and “mami” another,” she said.

“For me, there’s a duality, just like in its sound,” she continued. “The record is structured in binaries, two types of contrasting energy.  So, when you talk to me about feminism, I think that’s implicit in the intention – it’s very radical and it’s very much present in some songs, and maybe not some much in some others, because in the end, it’s all the emotional journey of the ups and downs an artist can take.”

She also revealed the challenging process of recording Motomami. “There was a lot of time when I struggled and felt on the edge of an abyss,” she said. “At a creative level, it felt like an abyss. On other records, I always had company, even when I was the one pushing things forward because I had a clear picture. In this case, more than ever, I felt the weight and the responsibility of the entire project.”
