Rosalia Grammy winner

Winner! Rosalía reacts to historic Grammy Award win

The Spanish singer won her first ever Grammy Award

It’s music’s biggest night of the year, and  Rosalía  already made a historic win! The Spanish singer won her first ever Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album winner– a category that had yet to see an almost entirely in Spanish album do the win. The 26-year-old took home the golden gramophone for her second studio album El Mal Querer. During her red carpet moment with Ryan Seacrest for E! News, the Con Altura singer shared her reaction to her first Grammy win.

Rosalía made history with her first ever Grammy Award

“I think that music, it has soul. It doesn’t matter which language you’re using,” she said. “I think that also it means that people are more open to receive different proposals that it doesn’t matter the language. And people are open to receive other cultures and I think that’s great.”

“I didn´t have a preconceived idea of what was going to happen with the album,” she said after receiving the award, “I simply did it with love, working on it for many hours, more than two years, with a lot of heart, and above all, with creative freedom. And that´s what, in my opinion, makes people to appreaciate it.”

The Urbano singer beat out fellow artists  Bad Bunny ,  J Balvin , Flor de Toloache and Ileana Cabra, who were all nominated under the same category.

The Barcelona native appeared on the red carpet in a rad fiery leather outfit fitting of the celebratory occasion. The intricate number embodied a shirtdress silhouette disrupted by a wrap detail, a fringe skirt and multiple braided belts around the waist.

She teamed her look with barely-there PVC mules, and long sparkly earrings, but perhaps the most standout accessory were the extra-long, crystal-embellished nails she was rocking.

The Yo X Ti, Tu X Mi singer revealed she’s always loved nail art since she was 16 and “now it just got crazier and crazier and crazier,” she said. “I wanted to create something special for the performance she said and now it’s really shiny,” she added.

There’s no question the award-winning artist had many reasons to shine tonight.

Congratulations, Rosalía!
