Rosalía, first Spanish woman to win MTV Award
27 August 2019 @ 16:53

POP newcomer Rosalía has become the first Spanish female in history to win an MTV Music Award after taking the top prize for Best Latin Videoclip.

The artist from San Esteban de Sasroviras (Barcelona province), who will turn 26 in a month's time, has enjoyed a meteoric rise to international fame in the past year or two, when her appearances in international arts festivals and her flamenco compilation album gave way to a firm presence at the top of the mainstream music charts, wide acclaim across Europe and the USA, and even a bespoke clothing range at high-street urbanwear store Pull&Bear.

In fact, Rosalía's second album, El Mal Querer - the November 2018 release that launched her into the music stratosphere – was her final-year degree project, part of the syllabus for her qualification in Flamenco Studies at the Catalunya High School of Music.

Six months earlier, however, she had already soared to number one in the Spanish music charts, Los 40 Principales, with the first release from the album, Malamente, which netted five Latin Grammy nominations.

Her unique flamenco-hip hop fusion style has shown no signs of falling out of favour, and her single Con Altura – released this March and featuring J. Balvín and El Guincho, was what won her Best Latin Videoclip at the weekend's MTV Awards.
