"Rosalía's widely experimental third LP may be remembered as one of the most ambitious albums of the decade - regardless of genre." - Ernesto Lechner, grammy.com
MOTOMAMI is the third studio album from Grammy Award-winning recording artist, producer and songwriter Rosalía. The album has been declared as "One of the Most Anticipated Albums of 2022" by multiple global press outlets including BBC, El Pais, NME, NYLON, Pitchfork, TIME and Wall Street Journal amongst others.
Rolling Stone en Español wrote, "It's a brave record... Genres are a thing of the past; there's room for everything here... what modern music should be: art and flavor, dembow, champeta, flamenco, bachata, hip-hop, piano melodies... MOTOMAMI feels like a freight train from the future, hurtling right at us at full speed and no brakes. Rosalía is the power source behind it all."
MOTOMAMI features the previously released songs "LA FAMA", "SAOKO" and much, much more. "LA FAMA" (feat. The Weeknd), is a powerful and cautionary song that finds Rosalía and The Weeknd singing to each other in Spanish about how charming and seductive fame can be, making her a dangerous and shallow lover. And "SAOKO" is a shining example of the spirit of MOTOMAMI - grit and grace, strength and vulnerability, fierce femininity, and an unapologetic, brave attitude.
Motomami is as provocative and risky as it is creative. It showcases Rosalía as a master, twisting together the contradictory strands of Latin and Anglo pop with traditional and vanguard forms and fresh sounds into a gloriously articulated radical approach that makes for obsessive listening.
It feels rare to hear an album that's so experimental, that aspires to stretch itself out across genres and play with form, and that attains exactly what it sets out to achieve.
Rosalía isn't so much carving out her own lane as building her own ultra-modern, super-bendy sonic motorway. It's one you'll want to hurtle down again and again.
On her latest work, she achieves new career highs by flitting across subjects that are both self-contained and say something about the world as she sees it. It's just exciting to watch her fly.
If El Mal Querer put her on the map, the singer's third album clearly shifts Rosalía's music career into the next gear and speeds toward a future where pop music isn't defined by one language.
There have been many songs and albums that are generally in this innovative-pop-and-hip-hop lane, but it's hard to think of any that are based around such a jaw-droppingly talented singer.
Motomami is the sound of an incredible voice indulging in her pop fantasy and excelling at it, but she makes sure to remind us as often as she can that really, she can do it all.
Motomami transcends language. Rosalía's expressive voice and remarkable performances convey so much feeling and emotion, whether she's humming a mournful ballad or nearly rapping. It's an impassioned, inventive pop album, one that stands out within the mainstream space it occupies and the more avant-garde corners of the music world that it clearly pulls from.
Rosalía does her homework, then she's ready to play. On her third album, the Catalan artist borrows from influences across the Latin and Spanish diaspora and bends them into new musical narratives altogether. At times explosive and distorted, later deeply personal and poetic, Motomami proves that Rosalía is carving her own lane in pop, led by her masterful understanding of the pioneers whose work she builds on.
By seamlessly exploring sexuality and spirituality through an eclectic mix of reggaeton, flamenco and even elements of hyperpop, Rosalía once again emerges as a nearly peerless artist who can slip into any genre and execute it with ease.
