Rosalía Releases a New Menrengue-Infused Song Called "Despechá”

It’s the perfect addition to your summer playlist.

Rosalía has returned with a new track called “Despechá.” The summer anthem, which she’s been performing throughout her MOTOMAMI tour, is a catchy, upbeat bop to dance to, especially considering she took inspiration from Dominican merengue artists.

In a recent Instagram post, the Spain native elaborated on the song, which translates to “scorned.”

Rosalía wrote in the translated statement, “There are many ways to be Despechá, in this theme it is from the freeness or the craziness, moving without reservations or regrets. This is the place from where I make music, from where I did it when I first started and where I will continue to until God says so. I’m grateful for having been able to travel in recent years and have learned from music from other places including the [Dominican Republic], where artists like Fefita la Grande, Juan Luis Guerra, and Omega have inspired me and without them this song would not exist.”

“Despechá” is the first single Rosalía has released outside her latest album, MOTOMAMI, which dropped in March. Listen to the new track above.
