Rosalía Drops a New Beachside Music Video for Her Latest Merengue Single, "Despechá”

The singer is living her best life on the Balearic Island of Mallorca.

UPDATE (August 11, 2022): Rosalía dropped a new music video for her latest single, “Despechá.”

According to the singer, the merengue track is inspired by some of the genre’s greatest artists, such as Fefita la Grande, Juan Luis Guerra and Omega. Naturally, the Spain native chose a tropical location — Balearic Island of Mallorca — for the beachside music video, which perfectly captures the aesthetic of the song.

Despechá, which translates to “scorned,” was released on July 28. Check out the music video for the track above.


ORIGINAL STORY (July 28, 2022): 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.
