Lorde Praises Rosalía’s ‘Motomami’: ‘Damn, It’s So Good’
Since leaving the network following the success of Melodrama, Lorde preferred to use email newsletters to communicate with fans. Technically, that’s how she announced her last album, last year Solar energy, and she often sends out missives on days when she has news or updates about her music and tour. Today, she launched the video for “Secrets of a Girl (Who’s Seen It All)” and sent out a newsletter to promote it, as well as share what she’s been up to so far this year.
One thing she did? Fan girl-ing on Rosalía, as many of us have been. Motomami is, without a doubt, one of the most inventive and exciting albums of the year, and as Cardi B said herself, you don’t even really need to know Spanish to understand the intention behind this music.
For her part, Lorde thinks the project is a good reminder of why pop music itself exists. “I have listened to Rosalía’s album every day since its release,” she wrote in the newsletter. “F*ck this is so good, I gagged when I heard that ‘Archangel’ tween, ‘Hentai’ is awesome, ‘Sakura’…projects like this remind me why I live for life. pop music – at its best, there is nothing better.”
