    El Mal Querer is more than a new fusion-pop and flamenco made in Spain. Good production, good composition and extreme good interpretation. She is Rosalia in all the songs. The pop music world don´t have anybody like Rosalia with this merge (like for instance M.I.A. with hindu music) and this is extremely important in this 21st century music full of clones of Madonna, Prince, MichaelEl Mal Querer is more than a new fusion-pop and flamenco made in Spain.

    Complex, deep and full of references, Miss Rosalía delivered a revolutionary body of work, breaking standarts for spanish music. Album of the year

    No other album this year is so mature, incredible and well written and produced as this one. Hands down

    Es un buen álbum, pero tiene algunas cosas que dejan a desear. Él tiene un brillo propio, pero no tanto cuando Los Ángeles.

    Incredible album. I'm not surprised that she hasn't gotten big in the US yet but very disappointed. If you're afraid of listening to it because of the language, you don't know what you're missing.

    ROSALÍA, tan joven y tan talentosa. Este álbum me cautivo con su concepto original, es un que relaciona a la religión con el mal querer de la mujer. Me dejo boquiabierto.

    One of the best albums of 2018. The mix of Spanish flamenco with other styles such as r&b and the presence of subtle electronic references offers a twist to the classic sound. Rosalia's vocals and her brief but effective lyrical content are enough to tell a passionate story along 30 minutes. Spanish and non-spanish speakers can enjoy this album. Highlights include Malamente, Pienso en TuOne of the best albums of 2018.

    A bastion of control and quaking vulnerability that strikes a match against its sombre surrounds. [Jan 2019, p.113]

    This is music potent and adventurous enough to grip you without you understanding a word of what she’s actually singing.

    Despite--or perhaps because of--its brevity (just over 30 minutes), El Mal Querer is arresting in its tension, passion, and creative ingenuity.
