The MOTOMAMI countdown is finally here. The highly anticipated third album of Spanish artist Rosalía is finally upon us — and of course she has already created all types of conversations (and memes) in doing so. As part of this compelling promo cycle, she has unveiled the art cover for MOTOMAMI today and announced that her next single will be released on Friday, Feb. 4.
Earlier today, the Spanish singer excitedly tweeted: “Madre miiiiia! Here you have the cover of MOTOMAMI and this Friday guess what new song is coming!”
What a cover, right? All bare with just a motorcycle helmet on – Rosalía’s up and ready to add more gas to her fire. One Twitter user said the cover was inspired by the painting “The of Venus” by Sandro Botticelli, and we can definitely see the parallels. As we know, the “Linda” singer is not one to shy from experimental choices and opportunities that sometimes leave us questioning her actions. And based on her latest song tease, we are both intrigued and full of curiosity. What’s to come?
Earlier this month, she posted a quick video revealing her lyrics to “Hentai,” which instantly became a laughable target. People instantly thought it was a joke, while others had all types of commentary and reactions from it.
A Twitter user sarcastically tweeted: “After listening to ‘Hentai’ by @rosalia,” paired with this gif of a woman being moved to tears.
Some were confused by it. Some made fun of it. Others straight-up disliked it. But how can we judge the entire album by a 24-second Tiktok?
Previous to that, she posted a snip of another presumed single “Candy,” which was the Tiktok soundtrack to her 2021 video recap in December. And we also had the official lead bachata-inspired single “LA FAMA,” which was a collaboration with The Weeknd.
Are we expecting more Hentai “poetry” from the singer-songwriter? Are we getting more bachata or is she residing again with reggaeton or trap-like bangers? Whatever it is, we hope it showcases her musical and artistic abilities such as El Mal Querer did. Do you remember the impact that album had on us? We are rooting for you, Rosalía! Don’t let us down!
