Rosalía is torn. The Spanish singer has released a new song,”Dolerme,” on which she fights with the amount of pain that someone’s bestowed upon her, and the change it has evoked within her.
“Por todas esas veces que me puse detrás / y yo cambié lo mío por lo que tú querías,” she softly beings the song. She continues to call upon the hurt, almost as if she truly hasn’t felt it yet.
The accompanying lyric video for “Dolerme” features an illustration of a woman laying in bed crying, seeming to be Rosalía herself. Beside her is her lit phone and her chihuahua, mid growl. (You may have seen her pup on her Instagram). There also seems to also be a medical mask on the floor, because of course, these are the times we’re living in.
Rosalía also shared a timely message with her fans:
“Many of us are in quarantine and many are taking risks to help others outside of home. I am in quarantine and I have lost track of time a bit because I decided that I was not going to think about it too much and that instead I was going to put my energy and my heart into doing something for others, in my own way.
I know that what I do as an artist may seem expendable, for some it will be, but for me being able to make music is mental health.
This song is called “Dolerme” and I hope it makes you feel a little better like it did to me when I made it …
Please take care of yourselves and take care of all those around you, with all my love.”
