Rosalía has shared another new single, this time a particularly lustful tune called “TUYA,” which sees the Spanish pop star incorporate her reggaeton roots, the Japanese koto, flamenco, and more.
Rosalía co-produced “TUYA” (which translates to “yours”), putting her in the front seat when it comes to building out her vast array of influences: “Exploring is part of who I am as a musician and in the case of ‘TUYA,’ inspirations such as reggaeton, Japanese instruments, flamenco, and gabber techno coexist at the same level,” she explains in a statement.
Lyrically, “TUYA” is a classic come-and-get-it anthem, a trope that Rosalía’s always pulled off exceptionally well; she describes herself as a “trozo de cielo” (“a piece of heaven”) and “suavecita como el cachemir” (“soft like cashmere”). She’s not one to beat around the bush, telling her partner — presumably her fiancé Rauw Alejandro — that “sexo conmigo es de altura,” or “sex with me is mindblowing.” He probably knows that already, but sometimes dudes need the reminder!
