The baseball bat-wielding voice of Latin Hip Hop. The multiple Latin GRAMMY-winning, Barcelona-based artist has earned unanimous praise for her socially minded lyrics and her sexually unabashed on-stage persona. Always breaking barriers, Mala Rodriguez was the first (and only) female artist to win both Best Urban Album and Best Urban Song at the Latin GRAMMYS. Her extensive catalogue has garnered her a multitude of fans, including Barack Obama, who featured Mala in his Summer Spotify playlist. Mala Rodriguez has toured globally and has collaborated with a range of artists that include Romeo Santos, Nelly Furtado, Calle 13, Ibeyi, and Tego Calderon among others and her recent featuring this summer with Juan Megan (“Usted”), Beatriz Luengo (“Caprochosa”) and Ibeyi (“Me Voy”) have gone Platinum. Mala marked her return in 2018 with the feminist anthem “Gitanas.” Pitchfork said of the track: Her voice is bold and unflinching, when she boldly asks “Quien me protege?” (“Who protects me?”) you can almost feel the ground quake beneath her feet. Mala already knows the answer to her question. Without missing a beat, she cries out, “Yo!” (“Me!”), daring anyone to doubt her. NPR recently named one of her singles as one of the “200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women.” Her latest single, “Contigo” (feat. StyloG) has quickly received millions of views, and Billboard calls it “a sensual reggaeton-meets-dancehall jam for lovers.”  MORE
