LAS VEGAS – Spanish artist Rosalia won on Thursday the Latin Grammy for the Best Urban Fusion/Performance for her song “Malamente,” and thanked in her speech “all the women” who showed her that one can succeed in the world of music.
“Thanks to all the women in the industry that have taught me that you can do it. Because of them, I am here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she said in her acceptance speech and mentioned, Lauryn Hill, Björk or Kate Bush by name.
“Oh my god, thank you very much. This is incredible, this is a dream. Thank you for so much love, thank you for the recognition. I’m proud to be able to always create the type of music that represents me, take risks and share it with the world and be here,” Rosalia said very excitedly on stage.
The Spaniard also thanked her family and her collaborator, Spanish musician Pablo Diaz-Reixa (El Guincho).
“Thank you for being so generous with me when there was no money or anything,” she said.
