Rosalía Vila Tobella (born 25 September 1993), known mononymously as Rosalía, is a Spanish singer, songwriter and producer from Barcelona. Her music is inspired by the genre of flamenco, making a modern interpretation of it.

Her debut album, ''Los ángeles''[[note]]"the angels"[[/note]] was released in 2017, and was mostly composed of acoustic takes on old flamenco songs centered around the themes of death. Made in collaboration with guitarist Raül Refree, it gained a lot of critical acclaim in her home country due to her vocal performance and became a SleeperHit.

*CoverVersion: The entirety of ''Los ángeles'' is based around covers of old flamenco songs.
*DreamTeam: With Raül Refree for the entirety of ''Los ángeles'' and El Guincho for the entirety of ''El mal querer''.

*EverythingIsAnInstrument: "De aquí no sales" is based on samples of motorbike engines.
*IntercourseWithYou: "Di mi nombre".
*LyricalDissonance: Despite being ethereal and quite catchy, "Bagdad" is about descending to hell.
*NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: ''El mal querer'' is flamenco + everything else, really.
*NewSoundAlbum: ''El mal querer'' compared to ''Los ángeles''.
*Sampling: "Bagdad" samples Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River" and "Que no salga la luna" samples "Mi cante por Bulerías" de La Paquera de Jeréz.
*TorosYFlamenco: Being flamenco-inspired music, a lot of the imagery surrounding her music videos is based around this trope.
