Haviah Mighty has collaborated with Mala Rodríguez on her new single, “Flamenco.”
Mighty produced the track with her longtime collaborator Taabu. The genre-bending track transcends to a new sound entirely. “Flamenco” boasts a dance-worthy instrumental and a super catchy hook that’s sure to get you moving along. With a smooth flow and silky vocals, you’ll find yourself revisiting “Flamenco” again.
“With this one, I wanted to try something different! Inspired by the cultural influences behind flamenco, this song allowed me to be a guest in a new genre,” Mighty explains. “Mala Rodríguez really brought this record home – her verse added authenticity, sensuality and pizzazz. She has a great voice and message, and with her Spanish roots, I felt that she spoke to the energy of the song more directly than I ever could. It’s a feel-good song, with the intention of resonating on a dance floor, with the bass pulsing as heavily as the sweat on one’s brow as they hit their moves. This song is quite literally a vibe!”

“Flamenco” serves as the follow-up to Mighty’s Grandtheft collaboration, “Avocado.” Both tracks come from her forthcoming mixtape, Stock Exchange, out this fall. The album will also boast collaborations with Jalen Santoy, Old Man Saxon, and TOBi. Stock Exchange refers to how artists are forced to validate their worth based on data like followers and subscribers.
