Rosalía and The Weeknd team up for the new song and video for “La Fama”

Rosalía and The Weeknd have released their new single “La Fama.”  The Weeknd sings in Spanish on the track, and in a statement translated into English, Rosalía said: “I wanted to write, in my own way, a bachata with a little story around ambition. Taking as a reference the lyrics of Rubén Blades or Patti Smith and the songs of Aventura, I ended up writing a story of romance with fame.”

The new single follows Rosalía’s appearance on a remix of The Weeknd’s hit song “Blinding Lights” last year. La Fama will appear on Rosalía’s new album Motomami, set to arrive in 2022. The LP will be the follow-up to her Grammy-winning breakout El Mal Querer from 2018.

Take a look at the video for La Fama, featuring a cameo from Danny Trejo and directed by Director X, at the link here.
