I was living life not knowing who Rosalía was until last year after catching her performance on the EMAs; the audience was so hyped and singing along to EVERY word of “Malamente” that I knew I had to do further research. FOMO kicked in and after checking out a few of her videos and reading up on her, I quickly became a fan.
Rosalía’s output this year has been more miss than hit for me but she finally hit jackpot by teaming up with Ozuna for the late summer/early fall chill vibes banger that is “Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi”. A simple, ride or die calypso-influenced reggaeton love song, the single is the perfect excuse to get these two superstars together for a video that coasts on the kind of undeniable chemistry that Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are trying reeeaallly hard to convince us that they have.
The video also showcases Rosalia’s unique choreo which forgoes typical booty pops in favor of an interesting fusion of hip hop and flamenco which is intercut with her doin’ cool chick ish like taking her ‘Rari for a spin, lounging beside a bubble bath in her mansion and basking in a paparazzi glow with Ozuna. I’m loving the song and vibe of the video which succeeds because neither artist is trying too hard or doing too much.
