Tokischa × Rosalia – Linda

Tokischa and Rosalia’s new hit single “Linda,” has been trending, with the music video becoming #1 in the world. Here’s what people are writing. 

Mitu said, “Tokischa & Rosalía’s Worlds Collide in a flirty and fierce club banger. “A hard-hitting [but] vibrant and bouncy new single… dropped [with] a stylish music video filmed in the Dominican Republic” wrote Complex. “To no one’s surprise, it’s an absolute bop from start to finish that showcases the talent of both women while delivering something fresh and an equally noteworthy sound” raved Remezcla. Consequence stated, “The Spanish superstar and polarizing Dominican up-and-comer… deliver a snappy, sexy number…  and steamy music video…that’s as uncompromising as the musicians themselves.”

“Rosalía and Tokischa vindicate ‘uncomfortable’ feminism in their new song, Linda,”  El Mundo stated. 

Many more publications have been speaking very highly of this dance banger. You can find the song HERE and watch the music video HERE

About Tokischa

Tokischa is a rising talent who deconstructs the perceptions and norms surrounding women’s roles. Her style is raw, authentic trap that few artists dare to pursue. In her world, there is no fear of showing society what she does, what she likes and who she is. She promotes a way of life that’s free from hypocrisy and gender stereotypes. Her vocal tone is instantly identifiable and is another major factor in making her songs distinctive. 

About Rosalia

Rosalia is a Grammy & Eight-Time Latin Grammy Winner who has quickly “leapt to the forefront of the global pop landscape” on the strength of her innovative musical fusions and distinctive style.  She has repeatedly shattered barriers for both female and Spanish language artists, while being widely hailed as: “a complicated geniusreflecting femininity and strength… a new generation leader… making Flamenco a global phenomenon… while becoming Earth’s Most Exciting Pop Star.” With the May 2018 release of Rosalía’s innovative breakthrough single “Malamente (Cap.1: Augurio)”-and the fall arrival of her landmark album “El Mal Querer,” fans worldwide quickly embraced Rosalía’s phenomenal vocal capability meshed with her now fully realized fusion of classic Flamenco and other timeless music styles of Spain, with R&B, hip-hop, contemporary Latin-American rhythms and electronic beats. Coupled with Rosalía’s strong influences from industrial visual arts, female empowerment, fashion and choreography, it became clear to critics that: “El Mal Querer is a boundary-breaking modern masterpiece… that has resonated like a shockwave… it stands out from virtually everything else on the global pop landscape.” As a result of the album’s long-running impact, and additional 2019 singles that followed, Rosalia garnered a GRAMMY Award, standout GRAMMY performance, the historic first-ever Best New Artist Grammy nomination for a Spanish Language artist, and eight Latin Grammys, including Album of the Year. Additional acclaim has included two MTV VMA’s, multiple magazine covers-including the annual Sunday New York Times Magazine’s special Culture Cover, highly praised Coachella and Lollapalooza festival appearances, the most watched global YouTube video of 2019 for a female artist, and “Best Music of the Decade” picks from Rolling Stone, Billboard, GQ, The LA Times, Pitchfork and more. While Rosalía has spent a large majority of the last year immersed in the creative process of writing and recording her eagerly-awaited next album, she also finalized landmark brand partnerships with Nike and MAC’s “Viva Glam” campaign, lead the field of LATIN GRAMMY winners for the second year in a row, joined Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, the Weeknd and Billie Eilish all on massive streaming collaborative tracks, and became the first-ever all-Spanish language music artist to grace the cover of VOGUE in the United States, with the unveiling of the January 2021 “Vogue Values” issue, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

Carly Gibert QxA

Carly Gibert is a 19-year-old house, R&B, and pop music artist, who recently was signed to 10:22PM/Def Jam Recordings. The bi-lingual, Spanish born singer just released her groovy single, “Interstellar,” which reflects on her move from Spain to LA. The disco-inspired bop appears on NOW Volume 79, and can be listened to HERE. Gibert has been making music since the age of four, and her passion for creating is evident in all of her releases. We sat down with the rising house star to speak about the inspiration behind her latest release, her songwriting process, and whats to come next in 2021.

  1. What inspired you to write “Interstellar?”

“Interstellar” is about trying to make someone care for you as much as you care for them. You would do anything for the other person, but they only think about what’s best for them. When I moved to LA from Spain–where I was born and raised–I kind of started a new life, it felt like living in another universe. “Interstellar” actually means “living between stars,” and that is how LA felt to me. It only took me moving to the other side of the planet to realize that I wasn’t taking care of myself. It also references the movie Interstellar (which is one of my favorite movies of all time) with its theme of leaving your life behind and starting over in an entirely different setting.

  1. How would you describe the sound of “Interstellar” in three words?

Futuristic, disco and progress.

  1. What musicians influence your music style the most?

Not specifically for this song, but I grew up with and have always been very inspired by Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Mac Miller and Tyler the Creator. I definitely grew up on house music as well, since my dad would play it at home all the time; and I think you can actually hear that on “Interstellar.” The song has a kind of house vibe to it.

  1. What does your song writing process usually look like? Was this process the same for the writing of “Interstellar”?

I usually start off with one of the 100,000 notes on my phone. I write notes every single day–anywhere, anytime. You never know when the inspiration is going to hit, so this is how I keep track of my thoughts. When I find a lyric idea or a concept that resonates with how I’m feeling, I start writing random lines around it. At first, it honestly doesn’t make any sense and nothing rhymes. At that point, it’s all about placing the right lines in the right places and making them fit into a melody. This was also the writing process of “Interstellar.” I sometimes like to start with the melodies, though, and just build the lyrics based on the melody.

  1. If you could design your dream music festival where you were the headlining act, who would you choose to perform alongside?

If we’re talking about VERY ambitious dreams, I would obviously say Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Kanye. Then, of course, Frank Ocean, Tyler the Creator, A$AP Rocky, Doja Cat, Audrey Nuna, SZA, BIA, Anderson .Paak, Rosalía, Saint Bodhi, Little Simz, Kali Uchis, Kaytranada, Rico Nasty, Tinashe, Ryan Beatty, Daniel Caesar, Miguel, Jorja Smith…there are too many great artists.

  1. What has it been like being signed and working with 10:22PM/DefJam?

If someone told me 3 years ago that I would be working with the people I’m working with today, I wouldn’t believe them. The people I’ve met and am surrounded by are some of the people I look up to the most, and I’m so grateful for everyone who made it possible. I have a very close relationship with everyone on my team. I speak to my A&R literally every day, and I’m so lucky to be able to talk directly to the label if I ever need something. I’m super involved in all aspects of my career, so having a direct relationship with the label is very reassuring.

  1. What is something about you or your music that fans might not expect?

I would definitely say singing in Spanish. It’s something I’ve never done before, and I’m so excited to do it. I don’t have any full songs in Spanish at the moment, but I do have some verses here and there. The next song I’m releasing actually includes Spanish verses. Growing up, I was very insecure about singing in Spanish because I thought my accent was weird. It didn’t flow as naturally as English did, even though Spanish is my first language. Through the years, I’ve been practicing improving my diction and I feel a lot more comfortable now. I guess I just had to make it my own and embrace the “Spanish person who can’t articulate Spanish” aspect of myself.

  1. What is next to come from you in 2021?

I have two more songs that I really love coming out in the next couple of months. Hopefully an EP by the end of the year? (Nobody confirmed that—I just made it up—but I’m putting it out in the world). To be honest, all I want to do this year is release all the music I’ve been working on for the past 2 years. These songs are so special to me, and I can’t wait for everyone to listen to what I have to say.

ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER × ROSALIA

ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER & ROSALÍA

NEW SINGLE: “NOTHING’S SPECIAL”

Listen HERE

Lyric Video HERE

When ROSALÍA first posted casual studio photos with Oneohtrix Point Never in late 2018, the prospect of a collaboration from two of the most singular voices in contemporary music set the internet alight and received speculative editorial from the likes of FADER and Rolling Stone.

In the intervening time, the two Artists have each added considerably to their growing bodies of work with various notable projects.  In 2021 alone, OPN has been a frequent collaborator with The Weeknd; as musical director for his Super Bowl Halftime Show and also performed with him at last week’s Brit Awards, “The Weeknd confirms what we always knew: Oneohtrix Point Never is a genius.” While her primary current focus has been on recording sessions to complete her own highly anticipated next album, Rosalia has seen two other collaborative singles released this year.  The long awaited “Lo Vas a Olvidar” with Billie Eilish, received wide global acclaim and “La Noche de Anoche” with Bad Bunny set a record for the most-ever debut day Spotify streams for a Spanish language song, reached #1 on Billboard’s “Latin Airplay” chart, and was performed by the pair on Saturday Night live.

Today, OPN and ROSALÍA premiere a stunning reworking of OPN’s “Nothing’s Special.”

“Nothing’s Special” first appeared as the closing track on the highly acclaimed Magic Oneohtrix Point Never but is re-imagined here with the inimitable combination of ROSALÍA’s pristine vocal and OPN’s elegant arrangement.

The eponymous album Magic Oneohtrix Point Never was released on October 30, 2020 – an epic, drifting fantasia – that includes a vocal from executive producer The Weeknd on No Nightmares, as well as further contributions from Caroline Polachek on Long Road Home, Arca, Nate Boyce and Nolanberollin. New York-based filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie directed a video for Magic standout Lost But Never Alone, a continuation of the collaboration between the Safdie brothers and OPN and following his celebrated scores for two of their iconic films Uncut Gems and Good Time, for which he received the Best Soundtrack Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Ahead of the release of his eagerly-awaited fourth album Assume Form tomorrow via Republic Records, James Blake debuts brand-new track “Mile High (ft. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin)” on Beats1 as Zane Lowe’s World Record. Combining Blake’s ethereal cals and Scott’s lyrical prowess, the track offers a refreshing take on love, masking its underlying vulnerability with Metro Boomin’s pulsing beats. Zane Lowe played the song three times back-to-back, raving “James Blake, you’ve done it again,” and assuring his listeners that Assume Form is “going to connect to you, it’s going to touch you no matter where you are and what you’re doing.”  Listen to “Mile High” here, and pre-order Assume Form here.
 
Following the announcement of its release last week,
 Assume Form trended worldwide on Twitter, with Blake experiencing a massive 33% uplift in streaming of his catalogue.   Over the past few years, Blake has become one of the most sought-after producers, singers, and songwriters in the music industry, working with top talent including Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, andJay-Z, co-writing and touring with Kendrick Lamar, performing with Travis Scott on the MTV Video Music Awards, and collaborating on the record-shattering Black Panther soundtrack. It is no surprise, then, that Assume Form features an all-star roster that reflects Blake’s continual sonic evolution and blurring of genre boundaries: André 3000, Moses Sumney, Travis Scott, Metro Boomin, and ROSALÍA. Throughout Assume Form, Blake proves himself yet again as one of our generation’s most gifted and influential artists, both as an essential collaborator and as a solo artist at the height of his career.
 
Blake will tour in support of
 Assume Form on his recently announced headlining North American tour, kicking off in Atlanta on February 18. The 17-date tour will make stops in major cities across the U.S. and Canada including Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Montreal, and 2 nights in New York City, before wrapping in Los Angeles on March 16 (see full list of dates below).
