Rosalia’s ‘Con Altura’ Translated Into English

Con Altura (With Finesse)

by Rosalia, J. Balvin ft. El Guincho

(Intro: El Guincho and then Rosalia)

Let’s begin this -with finesse

I sing a deep dembow
They say: “A star, a character”
From Hector I learned zest [Hector Lavoe, a famous salsa singer]
You have never seen such a pure jewel

(Chorus: El Guincho and then Rosalia)

This one is here to stay, what I do lasts (With finesse)
Too many nights of mischief (With finesse)
I live fast, I am incurable (With finesse)
I’ll go young to my grave (With finesse)

This one is here to stay, what I do lasts (With finesse)
Too many nights of mischief (With finesse)
I live fast, I am incurable (With finesse)
I’ll go young to my grave (With finesse)

(Verse 1: Rosalia)

I put roses on the Panamera [Panamera is a car and a reggaeton song]
I clap to Guantanamera [Guantanemera a famous salsa song]
I carry Camaron in the glove compartment (De la Isla) [Camaron de la Isla was a flamenco singer]
I do it for my people, and I do it my way

(Pre-Chorus: Rosalia)

Blue flowers and carats
And if it’s a lie, then that I die
Blue flowers and carats
And if it’s a lie, then that I die
(With finesse)
(With finesse)

(Chorus: Rosalia and then El Guincho)

This one is here to stay, what I do lasts (With finesse)
Too many nights of mischief (With finesse)
I live fast, I am incurable (With finesse)
I’ll go young to my grave (With finesse)

This one is here to stay, what I do lasts (With finesse)
Too many nights of mischief (With finesse)
I live fast, I am incurable (With finesse)
I’ll go young to my grave (With finesse)

(Verse 2: J. Balvin)

Here up high the winds are strong
Put your seatbelt on and take a seat
I saw inside your girlfriend (Yes)
Money never wastes time (No, no)
Against the wall (You know it)
And I had to buy her a drink because you had her thirsty
It looks so delicious from here
I’m not Sky, but I broke the bass again [reference to a music producer nicknamed ‘Sky breaks the bass‘]

(Pre-Chorus: Rosalia)

Blue flowers and carats
And if it’s a lie, then that I die
Blue flowers and carats
And if it’s a lie, then that I die
(With finesse)
(With finesse)

(Chorus: Rosalia and then J. Balvin)

This one is here to stay, what I do lasts (With finesse)
Too many nights of mischief (With finesse)
I live fast, I am incurable (With finesse)
I’ll go young to my grave (With finesse)

This one is here to stay, what I do lasts (With finesse)
Too many nights of mischief (With finesse)
I live fast, I am incurable (With finesse)
I’ll go young to my grave (With finesse)

(Balvin) Let’s, let’s, let’s go
(Rosalia) Here, here to stay
(Balvin) Let’s, let’s, let’s go
(Rosalia) Here to stay
(Balvin) Let’s, let’s
(Rosalia) Here to stay, lasting
(Balvin) Let’s, let’s, let’s go
(Rosalia) Here to stay
(Balvin) Let’s, let’s, let’s go
(Rosalia) Here to stay
(Balvin) Let’s, let’s, let’s go
(Rosalia) Here to stay
(Balvin) Let’s, let’s, let’s go
(Rosalia) What I do lasts
