Rosalía teams up on this banger with Colombian singer J Balvin. The pair trade playfully boastful verses about living fast, getting money, and doing things their way. The song title translates as "Up High."
J Balvin and Rosalía previously worked together on "Brillo," a track from Balvin's 2018 album Vibras.
The song was helmed by the Spanish producer Pablo Díaz-Reixa Díaz, better known as El Guincho, along with Frank Dukes and Rosalía herself. Their production is a tribute to old-school reggaeton, fused with modern flamenco and Middle Eastern sounds. Rosalia said in a press release: "When I was younger I loved listening to reggaeton and it could have been natural for me to make a song like this before, but I don't like to force anything."
"Con Altura" was Rosalia's second #1 in her native Spain following "Di mi nombre."
The video, shot by Director X, features the Spanish singers "Las Ocho Rosas" (The Thirteen Roses) and J Balvin inside a plane. It was Rosalia's first collaboration with Director X.
This won for Best Latin at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
