We love Rosalía not only for how she has managed to value Spanish music abroad, but also for that closeness and spontaneity that fame has not taken away from her. From her way of interrupting an interview with Nicki Minaj at the Met Gala to her recommendation on stories from Instagram of Belén Esteban’s gazpacho. All this going through the way in which he has received the second Grammy of his career (not the Latin Grammy, where he had already won the jewel in the crown: best album of the year for motomami).
At the 65th edition of the Grammy Awards, which were held this Sunday at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, the album motomami de la catalana has taken the award to Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album. A distinction that he already achieved in 2020 with his previous album, the evil will. Although that year she was also nominated for best new artist.
This award is one of those awarded at the pre-gala of the great Grammy ceremony, and competed with ink and time by Jorge Drexler; 1940 CarmenMon Laferte; Allegoryby Gaby Moreno; and with The Wild Years, work of Fito Páez. Finally, it has been for Rosalía that she did go empty in the other category to which she opted: Best Long Form Music Video for Motomami (TikTok Live Performance).
Due to the large number of categories recognized by the Grammys, the Recording Academy divides its ceremony into two parts: a pregala, which is not televised and in which the majority of awards are given; and the grand ceremony with the most popular categories, which takes place afterwards before the cameras.

However, our Rosi has not been seen on stage or on the red carpet. On the contrary, the artist He has learned the news that he was adding to his record from bed. In addition, she has not hesitated to show it with the naturalness that characterizes her.
