In 2019, Rosalía collaborated with James Blake on his new album, appeared in Pedro Almodóvar’s film “Dolor y Gloria”, and released a highly successful single titled “Con Altura (with J Balvin and El Guincho).”

Rosalía received the 2019 MTV European Music Award for Best Collaboration for her song “Con altura,” a joint effort with producer J Balvin (Spain) and El Guincho (Colombia). During her performance at the award ceremony in Seville, Rosalia put on an innovative, spectacular show, turning the stage into a tablao (flamenco nightclub) full of dancers and singers.
