The Spanish pop star first spoke about her team-up with the ‘Bad Guy’ singer in March of last year, saying that she “couldn’t wait” to finish the track.
Earlier this month she gave an update while speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, revealing that the song’s completion was “getting quite closer”, and that she’d been working on it during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown.
She continued: “I feel like the production, the sound design is almost done, so I just need Billie to send me the vocals and the ideas that she wants to add because we are there. So Billie… I hope that Billie sends me her thing.”
During her karaoke stream, Rosalía also revealed a box of merchandise and a handwritten message of support that was sent to her by Dua Lipa.
