The 2023 Latin Grammy Awards are officially underway for the first time in Seville, Spain, and Rosalía had the honor of opening the awards show with a special performance. She sang a cover of the 1985 hit “Se nos rompió el amor” by the late Spanish icon Rocío Jurado while backed by over a dozen guitarists. Watch a replay below.
Rosalía got nominated for Record of the Year for “Despechá,” going against tracks by Shakira and Bizarrap, Karol G, Christina Aguilera, and Maluma and Marc Anthony. Last year, Motomami won four awards, including Album of the Year and Best Alternative Music Album, at the Latin Grammys.
To kick off 2023, Rosalía released the single “LLYLM” and followed it up with several other songs, including “Tuya” in June and her forthcoming Björk collaboration, “Oral,” with proceeds fighting fish farming in Iceland. Rosalía also dropped her RR EP with her now ex-partner Rauw Alejandro.
