Three years into her career, TOKISCHA is arguably one of the most controversial artists in the music scene. Her versatility has led her to explore genres such as rap, trap, dancehall and dembow.
She immediately grabs our attention with her distinctive music and vocal tone, which have captured the attention and support of prominent artists like Anuel AA, Bad Bunny and Ozuna.
She once again takes the industry by storm, this time with her new single “Linda,” a collaboration with ROSALÍA, who is considered one of the most eclectic artists in the world.
Speaking about on this collaboration, TOKISCHA notes: “She is a great inspiration to me. Rosalía is a very disciplined, hard-working and lovely person. She is like an angel. I am very grateful for this opportunity to learn and grow.”
Meanwhile, ROSALÍA also surprises us by adding a Dominican dembow track to her sonic repertoire.
As an artist who constantly breaks barriers for Spanish-speaking women creators, ROSALÍA has been described as “a complicated genius who resonated like a shockwave that’s reflecting femininity and strength…a leader of a new generation that has made flamenco a global phenomenon, while becoming the most exciting pop star on Earth.”
“Toki is a strong and indispensable woman, who doesn’t conform to any molds, but represents all women because of her dedication to freedom. I admire her because she is unapologetically herself and doesn’t try to be a role model. This song came together in Los Guandules, where I was inspired by and felt the affection of its generous people who are filled with creativity. Viva dembow and viva la República Dominicana!” expressed ROSALÍA.
Recently, ROSALÍA posted on her social-media channels, “The women of the Dominican Republic are the ones with the best wordplay, for real,” and the Dominican artist TOKISCHA now joins ROSALÍA on her first foray into this style.
As ROSALÍA put it during a recent interview in the Dominican Republic:“Tokischa is an irreverent woman, a woman who speaks frankly and isn’t afraid to make people uncomfortable. Tokischa is a woman who is going to make a big impact just based on the message that she gives and what she represents. She is a woman who causes discomfort, and it seems like women tend to do that when they are not sufficiently ‘proper.’ At the end of the day, women are always expected to act a certain way, but I believe it’s necessary that women be the way they want to.”
This song is written by TOKISCHA, ROSALÍA, Leo RD and Raimy, with production by Leo RD and ROSALÍA. The music video for “Linda” was filmed in the Dominican Republic by the director Raimy. Both the single and the video are available now on all digital streaming platforms.
