At the end of last year, The Weeknd enlisted Rosalía for a remix of his mega-hit “Blinding Lights.” The two reunited again this week as Rosalía unveils her new “La Fama” single featuring The Weeknd, who showed off his range as he sang his verse in Spanish. The song is a single from her forthcoming project Motomami. On the song, Rosalía sets the tone:
Lo que pasó a ti te lo cuento, no creas que no dolió, o que me lo invento, así es que se dio/ Yo tenía mi bebé, era algo bien especial, pero me obsesioné con algo que a él le hacía mal/ Miles de cancione’ en mi mente, y él me lo notaba y él tanta’ vece’ que me lo decía y yo como si nada
Es mala amante la fama y no va a quererte de verdad, es demasia’o traicionera, y como ella viene, se te va/ Sabe’ que será celosa, yo nunca le confiaré si quiere’ duerme con ella, pero nunca la vayas a casar o
The glamorous video opens up with Rosalía taking center stage at a night club. As expected, she swiftly catches the attention of The Weeknd. The Weeknd flexed a bit of his Spanish-speaking skills earlier when he assisted Maluma for “Hawái (Remix).” He dropped off his visual for “Too Late,” which follows “Heartless,” “Blinding Lights,” “Until I Bleed Out,” and “In Your Eyes.” The After Hours album proved to be one of the biggest selling releases of 2020, scoring 444,000 album equivalent units during its first week of release. Despite the numbers, The Weeknd received no Grammy nominations this year, which led to him break his silence and address the award show.
