Rosalía is channeling her thoughts via the magnificence of belting lyrics at a karaoke bar. On Friday, as she launched her album Motomami, the Spanish singer dropped the surprise music video for “Candy,” in which she’s joined by a team of mates as she performs the monitor in a karaoke bar.
“No me has olvida’o, no me has olvida’o,” she sings in the refrain, right before including, “Ya no te quiero como antes/Me rompiste, pero solo en parte’/Llevaba tu esclava para pensarte.” (“You haven’t forgotten me, You have not forgotten me… I really don’t adore you like ahead of/You broke me, but just a section of me/I was sporting your necklace to feel of you.”)
The colorful video, directed by Stillz, follows her — and her seeming appreciate interest — as they party amongst a team of good friends in Shibuya, Japan. As Rosalía sings the monitor, the video clip demonstrates clips of Rosalía and some others getting snaps in a photograph booth though she performs the track in other scenes. By the end, Rosalía, sporting a pink wig, seems to lay on her really like interest’s shoulder subsequent a prolonged night of dancing.
The keep track of will make a reference to another tune of the very same identify, “Candy” by Prepare B, the 2013 reggaetón favourite, with the lyric “Vestía con F de Fendi/Bailando System B, la de ‘Candy’/Así tú te prendaste de mí/El día en que yo te conocí.”
Last November, Rolling Stone en Español caught up with the singer about her album-generating approach. “In these very last a few several years, I have required to focus my electricity on supplying this album a sense of risk and pleasure total. The field, sure, it might feel like almost everything is straitjacketed, since there is income concerned,” she claimed. “Sometimes products and solutions are not fresh new, or never stream the way they are supposed to. I’ve tried to forget about about the whole context, about the business. You can say whichever you want about the history, but it has possibility and emotion — at least I assume so and I hope so.”
