Anjulie & Natalia Lafourcade ft. Phyno
"A dreamy, bilingual pop track that billows like fine gauze with lyrics of feminine desire...The video shows Anjulie in furs, a bath, in pink drapes, covered in flowers, and on the beach — a celebration set against all the oldest, timeless totems of feminine magic."—NPR Music's Alt.Latino
"In English and Spanish, the three sing sweet, loverly nothings over a lilting dembow rhythm — a daring new sound for Lafourcade, who coyly sings, 'Holy water, la flor de mi sexo.' It’s enough to make both new and longtime fans blush."—Rolling Stone
"Infectious, sultry...It’s perfectly balanced with English/ Spanish verse and chorus combos that make you forget the track is bilingual. And the video is visually delectable with interesting interpretations of the lyrics and colors that tantalize the senses. It’s one of my current favorites."—KCRW
"Featuring a colourful array of provocatively implied scenes, and even a 'vagina tunnel', the title may imply holiness, but the video strays far from it...Visually stunning and intoxicating to look at, it captures the femininity of the song as well as all the rough edges that make it bloom into the track most fitting to play for shaking off those end-of-summer blues."—Earmilk
"This bilingual track finds [Anjulie and Lafourcade] embracing their sensuality, and together they give sex the healing connotation it rarely gets. Throw Nigerian MC Phyno in the mix and you have a new jam to get dirty to."—Remezcla
"Blending an amazing style of music and creating something that’s unique, [Anjulie] brings a fresh and exciting sound to her music that can’t be beaten."—Cheers To The Vikings
"All these amazing musicians join forces and unite nations as they embrace the unique qualities that each of them bring to the table to deliver something out of this world."—Wolf In A Suit
