From Dua Lipa to Rosalía: The Meme-fication of the Modern Pop Star
To celebrate the release of her new single, “I Know You Are” off her debut album, Bodega y G”,” in case you were wondering, here’s a song from her debut album. “I Know You are” takes the cake in my opinion. It’s a beautiful, aching, sexy song, with the lyrics, “If I was your girlfriend/ If I was your lover/ I could make you mine/ Just like how it feels to know/ I like you girl/ I like you girl/ I like you girl/ I like you girl/ I like you girl/ I like you girl/ I know you are/ I know you are.” And what makes this particular song so special?
