The voice of the Spanish singer Rosalia, winner of two Latin Grammy for “Malamente”, argued in defence of the urban genre saying music should be made “without prejudice” and considered important “to claim female power” in society.
In an interview with EFE, Rosalia said she has “many references when making music” and said she doesn’t think there is “one music better than another”.
Rosalia, winner of two Latin Grammy awards, has found in Los Angeles her source of inspiration to continue creating new sounds, that is the reason, she says, she “really wants” to live in Barcelona and in that Californian city.
“There is a series of musicians and artists who inspire me, and with whom it is very interesting to work since one can soak and learn from that environment,” added the artist, who has already shared a studio in that city with some prominent producers like Pharrell.

“Well, I think I have many references when I make music, without prejudice, right? And for me, I think that never… there’s never a better music than another. I always explain it like that because I feel it from my heart. For example, urban music is an influence, but so is classical music or root music. Flamenco, in particular, is… is the music that inspires me the most when it comes to creating.”
