Rosalía is a household name in Catalonia – and it's about to be heard worldwide, even more, as the flamenco singer was just nominated for five Latin Grammies for her single 'Malamente.'

The nominations include Song of the Year, Recording of the Year, Best Short Form Music Video, Best Alternative Song, and Best Urban Fusion.  With these nominations, Rosalía becomes the most nominated woman in the 19th edition of the awards.

In a tweet on her social media page, the singer posted a video of herself celebrating the nominations and thanked everyone who supported the single as well as everyone who helped her "during such an incredible year."

Born in the town of Sant Esteve Sesrovires to the west of Barcelona, Rosalía Vila Tobella sings in a style that could be described as new flamenco, art pop or urban fusion.  The 24-year old was also already nominated as Best New Artist in last year's Latin Grammies.

The singer's last album, 'Los Ángeles,' was released in 2016 in collaboration with guitar player Raül Refree. Following the release of single 'Malamente' and 'Pienso en tu Mirá,' in 2018, the performer's new album, 'El Mal Querer,' is set to be released on November 2, 2018.
