Bringing together two of Latin Music’s hottest artists and current global streaming forces, Rosalía continues her string of top-tier creative collaborations and summer of monthly new music surprises, with today’s release of “Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi” with Ozuna. The track (available on all platforms here) finds the two transatlantic artists trading appreciative flirtations, escalating to a declaration of “me for you, you for me”.
Rosalía, who is widely celebrated for her groundbreaking fusion of classic Flamenco with electronic beats and urban rhythm, this time also interweaves the distinctive pan-Caribbean sound of steel drums into a relaxed Urbano vibe that is a perfect fit with her famed Puerto Rican duet partner.
Continuing Rosalía’s track record of distinctive and engaging videos (which have earned her multiple MTV VMA nominations, including “Best New Artist”), the clip for “Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi” captures a natural chemistry between the two chart-topping stars, while of course keeping a number of Rosalía’s trademark visual icons such as long nails, singing behind the wheel of a fast dream car, and more unmistakable, drum-tight Flamenco inspired choreography. Watch the Cliqua (RJ Sanchez & Pasqual Gutierrez) directed video below.
Ozuna is a multi-award winning Puerto Rican singer/songwriter leading the wave of the new generation of Latin music. Earlier this year, Ozuna made history by becoming the single biggest finalist in the history of the Billboard Latin Music Awards with 23 nods in 15 categories. Additionally, the diamond-selling reggaetonero's last two albums, Odisea, and Aura both topped the Billboard Latin Rhythm Albums at No.1. His debut album, Odisea, became the longest leading No.1 by a male artist on the Billboard Top Latin Album chart, with an impressive 46 weeks atop. Ozuna’s album, Aura, reached no.7 on the cross-genre Billboard 200 chart. Today, 2018's top-ten most-streamed Spotify artist’s collaboration, "Yo x Tí, Tú x Mi," with Rosalia is a rhythmic segway into his fast-approaching LP, Niburu. With over a billion YouTube views on his singles like, "Se Preparó," "El Farsante" with Romeo Santos, and the star-studded, "Te Bote Remix," Ozuna is an urbano game-changer and habitual record-breaker.
Rosalía’s landmark album “El Mal Querer” was released to immediate critical and commercial success last fall. The album’s groundbreaking fusion of classic Flamenco with R&B and electronic beats, coupled with Rosalía’s nod to the visual arts, fashion and choreography was strongly embraced by fans across the globe. The music industry at large took note quickly, with the album’s lead single “Malamente” garnering six Latin Grammy nominations, and taking home the awards for Best Alternative Song and Best Urban Fusion Performance. This year has seen Rosalía continue her accelerated ascent to Global stardom with an appearance alongside James Blake on his “Barefoot in the Park” single release, and three other previous releases of her own with the recent double track “Milionària & “Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero,” “Aute Cuture” and her widely praised, and frequent ‘Song of the Summer’ pick “Con Altura” with J Balvin and featuring El Guincho. The landmark video for Con Altura is 2019’s most-watched video from a female lead artist (now over 700 million views), and reached #1 on YouTube’s Global music video chart. The combined success of El Mal Querer, and her successive single releases recently lead Stereogum to declare that “Rosalía Is Becoming Earth’s Most Exciting Pop Star!.” An equal factor in Rosalía’s worldwide embrace has been her unique and starmaking live performances on a sold out limited engagement “El Mal Querer Tour,” and across this year’s top global festivals - including Coachella, Primavera Sound, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and many more. The reaction to her live presentations was best summarized by NME in a FIVE STAR live review declaring: “nobody in pop right now does it better… If you haven’t seen Rosalía live – you need to. ASAP.”
