Today, Spanish singer/producer Bad Gyal shares her highly awaited new song “Zorra.” Released via AfterCluv/Interscope Records, “Zorra” closes out a year full of chart-topping, multi-platinum-selling releases for the massively celebrated Catalana sensation. The video was directed by MANSON and produced by CANADA.
Built on Bad Gyal’s genre-warping hybrid of reggaeton, dancehall, and urban music, “Zorra” shows off her force-of-nature energy and fierce sensuality. Meanwhile, its outrageous video follows a day in the wild life of Bad Gyal, leading up to a jaw-dropping climax that finds the singer and her girls getting some glorious revenge on the man who’s done them wrong.
“Zorra” arrives on the heels of Bad Gyal’s smash single “Alocao” — her record-breaking collaboration with urban-flamenco musician Omar Montes. Since premiering in late October, “Alocao” has shattered all streaming records in Spain, amassing more than 70 million plays and spending five consecutive weeks in the #1 spot on the Spanish Spotify chart.
As one of the only artists of her generation to achieve a staggeringly high level of fame both in Spain and internationally, Bad Gyal has also recently delivered such hits as her July 2019 single “Hookah” (now at over 13 million streams on Spotify). Next year, she’s set to continue her global domination by embarking on a widely anticipated European tour.
ABOUT BAD GYAL:
Born Alba Farelo, Bad Gyal grew up in Vilassar de Mar — a sleepy seaside town located on Spain’s Catalonian Coast. Despite that quiet upbringing, she’s brought a wildly rebellious spirit to the Spanish urban-music scene in recent years. With a number of world tours now under her belt, Bad Gyal has also won the praise of leading outlets like Pitchfork (who noted that she “twists and bends languages, fashion trends, and musical styles to her will”), The FADER (who dubbed her a “rising star”), and Nylon (who noted that “she has an untouchable confidence that can’t be taught”).
