Rosalía's creative machine and her acclaimed new album “Motomami” does not stop generating content. Now, almost two months after the publication of her third album, her fans are no longer satisfied with those brief previews of “Chicken Teriyaki” or “Saoko”, with just 20 seconds of song.
The Catalan singer has published the video clip of "Delirio de Grandeza", the version of the Cuban bolero by Justo Betancourt, located in eleventh place on the list of "Motomami" songs. In the clip, which barely lasts three minutes, Rosalía appears surrounded by nature and the countryside, with an introspective character. Unlike “Hentai”, her hottest song where she appears in underwear, in this bolero she reflects her wilder side.
In the scenes, the singer appears crossing a stream, chopping wood, using a bow or lighting a fire with a huge white dog. At the end of the song, a sample from “Delirious by Vistoso Bosses” is included, a rap by Soulja Boy that provides an unexpected twist.
On her alternative Instagram account @holamotomami, she has already mentioned that the video clip was shot months ago. She had already published several images with the dog "Chip", where she stated that "it was the most beautiful shoot I've ever been on".
This is the sixth video clip that she publishes with songs from her third album. Previously, she released “La fama”, “Saoko”, “Chicken Teriyaki”, “Hentai”, and “Candy”. Unlike other songs, where Rosalía opted to merge genres such as trap and reggaeton, in "Delirio de grandeza" the main protagonist is her high-pitched and sweet voice, something that fans who discovered her in early flamenco times claim her.
In this clip, Rosalía and her songs are the exclusive protagonists: there are no motorcycles, no modern choreographies, no colorful clothing. In “Motomami”, everything has a meaning and a reason, and the peculiar mix of styles and formats was a bet to create an innovative album. But Betancourt's version reflects the purest and deepest version of the singer.
Her first single “La Fama”, which has the collaboration of The Weknd, received a triple Platinum Record in Spain, which confirms the success of the commitment to Caribbean bachata. According to Billboard, the song is currently the most played on Latin radio in the United States.
It is probably that the singer, who recently surprised with her own menu "MotouMami" at the prestigious Diverxo restaurant in Madrid, has more surprises prepared for her followers. In Spain, her fans are anxiously awaiting her next summer tour, where she will play in Barcelona, Madrid, Sevilla, Almería or Palma de Mallorca.
