Natalia Lafourcade - “Hasta la Raíz”

Any Natalia Lafourcade comeback single is surely welcomed around these parts, but a New Years Day premiere? Sit down Kanye and Macca, cause los Reyes Magos knew what I REALLY wanted this year. “Hasta la Raíz” is the first new original piece of music we’ve heard from Lafourcade since 2009’s divine Hu Hu Hu. Between that masterpiece and her Grammy-winning Agustin Lara-tribute, the criminally underrated Mujer Divina, the stakes are certainly high for Lafourcade’s next effort. And while “Hasta la Raíz” doesn’t sound like a bold step outward for Natalia (sounds more like something from Camila Moreno), there’s certainly no need to lower your expectations. At the least, “Hasta la Raíz” SOUNDS rich. If that Grammy’s gonna pay for anything, it’s gonna pay for a bigger budget, right?
