On Apr. 13, Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro dropped their latest joint music video, “Vampiros.” The gothic-inspired visuals, directed by STILLZ, are in support of their new collaborative EP RR.
“🧛🏻♂️ VAMPIROS 🧛🏻♀️ OUT NOW 🩸RЯ🩸directed by @stillz,” the Puerto Rican artist announced on Instagram.
The latest video starts with the duo’s signature “RЯ” in red, dripping letters. It shows the power couple strutting down the streets at night, holding hands. They both look fashionable: Rauw in a long, leopard-patterned fur coat and Rosalía in a blue ostrich feather-style trim jacket. The visuals follow the duo eyeing their next prey–rich, jewelry-covered humans–at a bar. A following frame shows the lovers eating churros, showing off their vampire fangs. Towards the video’s end, we see a “normal” side of the two: eating breakfast and practicing their instruments after a night out of being vampiros.
The new video is receiving praise from the couple’s fans. A YouTube user, Mandragoraren Kalderua, wrote: “BRUTAL!!! 😍 Great video and great song. From the cinematography, photography, design, wardrobe, make up to the effects. YOU HAVE TAKEN CARE OF EVERY DETAIL TO THE MILLIMETER. SIMPLY BRUTAL 🥰.” A Twitter user echoed the same feeling: “So cool to see such iconic places of Barcelona in the videoclip of #Vampiros by @rosalia and @rauwalejandro such as the Raval neighborhood and the mythical Bar Marsella, with the detail of the absinthe shots 🔥.”
Besides this new video, the Spanish singer-songwriter and Puerto Rican artist are both busy with their upcoming live performances. Rosalía will be performing at the three-day Coachella festival on Sat. Apr. 15 and 22. On the other hand, Rauw is currently on his Saturno World Tour across the U.S. Could it be that they perform the songs from their EP at Coachella? We’ll have to wait and see.
