Rosalía x Cardi B – “DESPECHÁ (Remix)”

Rosalía enlists the help of Cardi B for a remix of her viral single “DESPECHÁ,” which she debuted live during her MOTMAMI world tour and was included in the album’s deluxe edition. “I always wanted to work with her. Since long time ago, I wanted to make music with her. And she knows I love her music, and she always supports me too,” Rosalía tells Apple Music of Cardi B. “So I was like, ‘This song is inspired in Mambo, it’s inspired in musica Dominicana’  And she’s Dominican, so who else is going to understand this better than her? You know what I mean? And she knows it’s inspired in this type of music, inspired in Omega, this type of song is inspired in Omega… So she understands all of that is, it’s part of her.”
