Haviah Mighty Teams with Mala Rodríguez on New Single “Flamenco”: Stream

The latest preview of Haviah Mighty's upcoming Stock Exchange mixtape

Haviah Mighty’s recent singles are continuing to solidify her status as one of the most exciting voices in today’s underground hip-hop scene. As another preview of her forthcoming mixtape, Stock Exchange, the Toronto rapper has shared the new single “Flamenco,” which boasts guest vocals from Latin Grammy Award-winning artist Mala Rodríguez.

Co-produced by Haviah and her repeat collaborator Taabu, “Flamenco” expectedly draws from Spanish and Latin influences. Its reggaeton beat calls to mind sardine-packed dance floors, or — perhaps more appropriate for the times — sweltering block parties in city streets.

“With this one, I wanted to try something different,” Haviah said in a statement. “Inspired by the cultural influences behind flamenco, this song allowed me to be a guest in a new genre. Mala Rodríguez really brought this record home — her verse added authenticity, sensuality, and pizzazz. She has a great voice and message, and with her Spanish roots, I felt that she spoke to the energy of the song more directly than I ever could.”

Along with the track comes a bold visualizer by illustrator BlackPowerBarbie. Check out “Flamenco” below.

Haviah announced Stock Exchange earlier this summer with the single “Protest”; the mixtape’s precise release date is still TBA, but it’s expected this fall. In line with her globetrotting sound, the Mighty one also released the Jamaican-inspired single “Obeah” earlier this year, earning our title of Song of the Week.
