'Rosario' is the first song ALETULLE penned in both Spanish and English, combining her heritage with her current life in London.
In the past number of years, ALETULLE has spent her time honing her many creative disciplines – songwriting, animation and production – in between the UK and Muscat (Oman).
Having collaborated with the likes of James Mellor (ASAP Ferg, Emili Sandé, The Raconteurs) and Billi Hallyday (Florence and The Machine, Sampha, Mick Jagger, Skepta, Frank Ocean, The Kooks), ALETULLE is establishing her unique sound in the Spanish music industry.
Her brand new track 'Rosario' harnesses the influence of trap music within its instrumental sound, using urban beats to distance herself from previous baroque styles.
Inspired by fellow female vocalists along the lines of Lana del Rey and FKA Twigs, ALETULLE stays loyal to her trademark musicality while pushing the boundaries of her comfort zone.
The singer-songwriter wanted to explore the idea of stepping into the shoes of main characters of action films (usually cast as male). The artist becomes the movie’s hero and villain simultaneously on 'Rosario'.
"I was hoping to create a caricature of this main character who tends to be a predator, a womaniser, a modern tortured James Bond, who sexualises their lovers and can’t see beyond the surface, and who then leaves to go to bigger and more important adventures and leaves the lover behind," ALETULLE - real name Alejandra Lopez Martin, says of 'Rosario'.
"I wanted to see how it would feel to perform that attitude that tends to be associated with these main characters, and hopefully expose its ridiculous, misogynistic nature when seen in a woman."
