‘I really love that he wanted to sing in Spanish.... That’s historic. That’s history,’ Rosalía says of the collaboration
“Travis is an artist who I’ve admired a lot since the beginning of his career and I can’t imagine a better artist to collaborate with on this song,” Rosalía says of the collaboration in a press release. “I feel that now is the moment to release this song, after so many months of staying indoors, missing freedom or being with people we love. I hope ‘TKN’ gives you energy, makes you dance, and gives you strength if you’re going through difficult times.”
Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Rosalía explained that the song had been in the works for over a year, and described Travis Scott’s energy in the studio. “He’s a crazy musician. For real,” she said. “And I really love that he wanted to sing in Spanish. You know? Like you can hear Travis singing in Spanish! That’s historic. That’s history.”
The song is the two artists’ second creative pairing, following their 2019 collaboration “Highest in the Room (Remix)”, which also featured Lil Baby.
