FC Barcelona’s partnership with Spotify will see the logo of Rosalía featured on the team’s shirt in the next Clasico.
This is the second time this season FC Barcelona have donned a musician-based logo. Last October, the Blaugrana used Canadian rapper Drake’s logo for the first El Clasico of the season.
The Drake owl emblem replaced the usual Spotify logo on Barcelona’s kit. The four-time Grammy award winner became the first artist to surpass 50 billion streams on Spotify in 2021.
Real Madrid won the first clash of the season 3-1. However, Barcelona have retained their lead in La Liga with a 9-point lead over their rivals. They also lead in the first leg of the Copa del Rey, 1-0, after winning the Supercopa over Los Blancos last January.
Clasico kit celebrates Rosalia’s last album “Motomami”
The Catalan giants will wear the Rosalia kit at Camp Nou on March 19 to celebrate the artist’s third studio album Motomami. Moreover, the shirt adopts the cover lettering of the 2022 album as designed by award-winning artist Viktor H.
The Catalonia-born singer plans to release her fourth album by the end of 2023. She has earned two Grammy Awards and eight Latin Grammy Awards, making the 30-year-old an accomplished and celebrated artist.
Barcelona’s four-year deal with Spotify, which involved renaming the stadium as Spotify Camp Nou, also planned to have singer Shakira’s advertisement on the Blaugrana’s shirt.
However, that deal may have been spoiled by former Barcelona player Gerard Pique’s complicated divorce from the Colombian singer.
Will the Rosalía FC Barcelona shirt be on sale?
FC Barcelona has yet to make an official announcement on the release of the El Clasico shirt.
However, it’s unlikely the kit will go on general sale.
Instead, the club may encourage fans to participate in a contest that offers them the opportunity to win one of the exclusive Rosalía FC Barcelona shirts.
