Celebrating New Year’s Eve With La Mala [VIDEO]

in Music by

On Saturday night, a few minutes before midnight, Mala Rodríguez appeared on stage at Concord Music Hall in Chicago, cracking that lyrical whip, fiercely snapping off one hit after another only pausing long enough to take a breath and say hello. With two minutes remaining, the always on-point P-Trix started to hype us up to count it down.

The crowd was definitely ready.

Mala continued her steady slay, getting playful near the end of her set by bringing up ladies from the audience to have a friendly dance competition. Although she ended her set on time, it felt a little short only because there was another show happening right after she ended hers.

Regardless, Mala managed to pack in a powerful collection of tracks that kept the crowd going full steam until the end of her encore when she had to leave the stage.

She seemed happy as she walked off stage. From the looks of a couple of Instas she posted, it seems she was. 

2017! Vamos que nos vamos!

We did great y’all. A happy, powerful and crazy intro to the new year. We wouldn’t want it any other way.

A happy new year to everyone!
