Rosalía kicks off her world tour to present her latest album, Motomami, on Wednesday night in Almería. 

As part of the ‘Motomami World Tour,’ the 28-year-old Catalan urban pop star will perform two sold-out shows in Barcelona on July 23 and 24

Tickets for the Palau Sant Jordi concerts sold out the day they went on sale, at prices ranging from €45 to €400. 

Taking the entire tour into account, a total of 135,000 tickets were sold in a single day, according to producer Live Nation.

In Spain, the tour will pass through Seville, Granada, Malaga, Valencia, Madrid, Bilbao, A Coruña and Palma. 

Rosalía will then visit Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the United States and Canada, and at the end of the year, further concerts are scheduled for Portugal, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom and France, where the tour will end in Paris on 18 December.

Her most "personal" record

‘Motomami’ was released last March and sees Rosalía develop her style toward more reggaeton, ballad, and flamenco sounds. The album also includes a voice note in Catalan by her grandmother. 

The singer’s third album is also her most personal work, a musical self-portrait with a "confessional" air according to Rosalía herself. In it, she has tried to express herself directly, unlike what she did in her previous albums, 'El Mal Querer' (2018) and ‘Los Angeles’ (2017), in which she conveyed stories.

In the new album, there’s still room for flamenco on tracks such as 'Bulerías', where she sings that she is "just like a singer with a Versace tracksuit that is dressed as a dancer," and the melodic ballads 'Como una G'. 

Three years in the making

The global icon, Grammy winner, and winner of eight Latin Grammys had been working on the album 'Motomami' for three years. 

In this eclectic musical self-portrait, the singer from Sant Esteve Sesrovires wanted to imprint "the feeling of risk and emotion" on her latest record. 

As for the lyrics, "it's the most personal and confessional album" she has created so far. 

The album also has a "binary" structure with two opposite types of energy: strength (symbolized in the 'Moto') and fragility ('Mami').
