Arooj Aftab covers Rosalía’s “Di Mi Nombre”

Arooj Aftab shared a cover of Rosalía’s “Di Mi Nombre (Cap.8: Éxtasis)” for the Spotify Singles series, which is currently celebrating the Best New Artist category at the 2022 Grammys. The Grammy nominee also performed a new rendition of his own “Baghon Main” for the episode. Listen below.

“I have always felt a very strong kinship with flamenco music, and I recently visited southern Spain, even more unmistakably,” Aftab said in a statement. “It’s always been in my periphery to do something with that energy. The catchy crudity of the palmas, the haunted voice. Totally my vibe. The opportunity to cover a previous Best New Artist pointed me straight to Rosalía. And even though it was a very ambitious choice, I had a great time versioning this song!

Arooj Aftab is nominated for Best New Artist and Best Worldwide Music Performance (for ‘Mohabbat’) at the 64th Grammy Awards. Over the past few days, Spotify has collaborated with Best New Artist nominees Arlo Parks, FINNEAS, Japanese Breakfast and Jimmie Allen on exclusive recordings.

Earlier this year, Aftab shared the unreleased track “Udhero Na” from the deluxe edition from his album 2021 Prince Vulturewhich comes out on June 24. Read our Artist Spotlight interview with Arooj Aftab.
