Tokischa and ROSALÍA join Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 to discuss their new collaboration “Linda”. They discuss how they came together for the track, how the song is a mix of Dembow and Flamenco, and ROSALÍA discusses a visit to the Dominican Republic to connect with Tokischa.

Tokischa and ROSALÍA talk to Apple Music about reuniting for “Linda” …

ROSALÍA: Honestly, I was delighted to visit the Republica Dominicana, and then we’re just hanging out in the studio, we’re talking, and it just happened. It was like something that happened naturally. Like in four hours, we got the song. Yes. It was good like that.

Tokischa: Yeah, it was quick and it was awesome. The end product was so much fun. Doing it and then listening to it was like the party and then the after party. It was like a dream actually. Sometimes I was just like, “Are we really doing this for real?” “. I was really excited all the time and felt like the connection we had felt like we had known each other for years.

ROSALÍA: I have the impression that our experience is inspiring. And this one is very inspiring. This place, Republica Dominicana, is magical and it is magical too. And I feel like Tokischa, I’m so happy and grateful to be a part of the song she wanted to release and I’m very happy.

ROSALÍA tells Apple Music about his visit to the Dominican Republic …

You know, I thought I felt so grateful to be a musician and that music connects you with people. Being a musician makes you meet new people and experience things that maybe if I wasn’t a musician I couldn’t live or it wouldn’t happen. And then I was so grateful to be there in the studio with Leo with Toki. It was an amazing experience. I really enjoyed the place, the food, it’s a whole culture, you know, still a beautiful culture and I have so much love and respect for it. And then I remember in the studio. It was so natural to be there. And also the people were very warm. I remember everyone on the street being so loving. The people were so warm. It was unbelievable.

ROSALÍA tells Apple Music that the song is a mix of dembow and flamenco…

Toki, I also remember in the studio, she has so much motivation because we went to the studio and then I said “What would you like to do?” and she said Dembow. Because she said, “You never did dembow, so why don’t we do dembow.” And then I was excited. And I was like, “Alright, alright. Can we do something between flamenco and dembow?” So at the end the result, you can hear the clap, which is very, very flamenco, you know, the claps. And then that was the only flamenco element you could find. But it just made us want to do dembow when I’ve never done it, it’s the first time and I’m very glad that you, Toki, pushed me to try something new.
