The 26-year-old Spanish sensation Rosalía has been blowing up big time. She was nominated for four awards at MTV’s 2019 VMA’s and copped two statues for “Con Altura”, her hit collaboration with J Balvin. A big achievement in her career, but to us, the real tipping point was the performance of her newest single “Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi” with Ozuna. She managed to deliver one of the most exciting acts by a new artist that we have seen in this sad award show in recent history. Not only that, she showed everyone watching that she’s a force to be reckoned with.
Rosalía got her start in 2008 when she participated in the Spanish talent TV-show Tú Sí Que Vales. Sadly enough, she didn’t win. However, it planted the seed for her musical career. Many years later, she went on to study flamenco. She was taught by one of the most prestigious names in the genre, José Miguel ‘El Chiqui’ Vizcaya, who only accepts one student at a time. He turned out to be a key figure for the singer and influences her music still to this day.
