Rosalía has posted a teaser of a new song from her forthcoming album ‘Motomami’.

The singer shared a short clip of the song via TikTok on Wednesday (February 16). The lively song has a reggaeton beat – listen further below.

It’s the latest airing from the Spanish singer-songwriter’s third album, which is released on March 18 via Columbia Records. ‘Motomami’ follows 2018’s ‘El Mal Querer’ and 2017’s ‘Los Ángeles’.

Earlier this month Rosalía released the single ‘Saoko’. She also teased two tracks called ‘Candy’ and ‘Hentai’ on TikTok in January after sharing a snippet of ‘Soako’ on the platform last December.

Speaking about ‘Soako’, Rosalía said: “Naming my next track ‘SAOKO’ and sampling Yankee and Wisin for me is the most direct homage I can make to classic reggaeton, a genre that I love and that has been a constant and great inspiration throughout the MOTOMAMI project.”

‘Motomami’ will also include Rosalía’s The Weeknd-featuring 2021 single ‘La Fama’.

It will be the pop star’s first full-length since her 2018 opus ‘El Mal Querer’, which won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album and was named in 2020 by Rolling Stone as the greatest Spanish-language album of all time.

Guest appearances from Tego Calderón and Tokischa are confirmed on Rosalía’s new album, with speculation rife that Frank Ocean will also feature.

The album shares its name with a new radio station on ‘Grand Theft Auto Online’, which went live last December and sees Rosalía and Venezuelan experimentalist Arca host a frequency dedicated to boundary-busting pop.

In Rolling Stone en Español’s inaugural cover issue, Diego Ortiz spoke about the artist’s “lyrical, rhythmic, and sonic experimentation” on ‘Motomami’. “She can be sweet, warm, and innovative like Lorde on ‘Pure Heroine’ or rude and raw like Nine Inch Nails on ‘The Downward Spiral’.”

He continued: “Across the album, Rosalía over-saturates and plays with her voice, pushing it to the limit without hesitation, deconstructing it to create samples and sounds that intertwine with the rhythm – if that’s what you can call the syncopated, out-of-time percussion that fires out according to the progression of each song.”
