Rosalía 2019 North American Tour in Toronto
The rising Flamenco R&B fusion singer from Spain presents her latest album as part of her North American “El Mal Querer” Tour.
Latin Grammy-winning artist Rosalía has been a rising star in the last few year. Coming from a Flamenco background, she has reveled the fusion with R&B and pop music, and she has even jumped into the big screen in Almodovar’s latest movie, Dolor y gloria, sharing a scene with Penélope Cruz. She is now embarking on her first North American solo tour of North America, which will end in Toronto.
Her Gold-certified album El Mal Querer, released on November 2, has not only topped the sales and streaming charts in the first week upon release in Spain, but it has also become the most listened-to album on Spotify Spain in the first 24 hours and in its first week. In addition to being a sales phenomenon, El Mal Querer is one of the best albums of the year according to the international press: Sixth best album of the year for the NY Times and KCRW, best Latin album according to NPR in the U.S. and Noisey / Vice.
Di Mi Nombre, the last song released before the album, reached number one on the Spanish singles chart. Rosalía thus became the first Spanish artist to have a triple #1 during the same week on the album sales chart, album streaming charts and singles sales chart.
Rosalía is the first Latin singer to be included in the list of ten nominees for the prestigious BBC Sound of 2019 (A list made by British critics and artists, aiming to anticipate who will be next year’s best artist). She will soon headline Barcelona’s Primavera Sound and some of the largest Latin American festivals such as Ceremonia (Mexico) and Lollapalooza (Argentina and Chile).
Rosalía dropped her latest single off El Mal Querer in January, titled De Aquí No Sales (Cap.4: Disputa). She has also teased collaborations with Billie Eilish and Oneohtrix Point Never; her most recent release was a duet with James Blake titled Barefoot In the Park, off his 2019 album, Assume Form.
