"Me Traicionaste" is a song recorded by Spanish singer Rosalía and Peruvian singer-songwriter A.Chal. It was released on April 26, 2019 through Columbia Records simultaneously with the Game of Thrones companion soundtrack, For the Throne: Music Inspired by the HBO Series.

Background

On April 9, 2019, it was announced that the iconic HBO show Game of Thrones would have its own companion soundtrack.[1] The soundtrack was set to be released on April 26, 2019, two weeks later than the show's eighth season premiere.[2][3]

Critical reception

Ryan Dombal of Pitchfork praised the track and Rosalía's performance in an otherwise highly negative review of its parent album, stating that it "offers a dark, piercing sensuality" and "comes close to matching the shadowy Game of Thrones mood millions have fallen for," but was highly critical of A.Chal's "pointless" verse.[4] Danny Schwartz of Highsnobiety expressed a similar sentiment, writing that the Peruvian rapper spoiled the lead artist's "exquisite flamenco".[5] Stefanie Fernández, writing for NPR, called the track a "soundtrack standout" due to its production and "uncanny relevance to Arya Stark and her kill list",[6] while Billboard's Judy Cantor-Navas described it as "darkly intriguing."[7] GQ placed the song on its weekly best songs list, with Colin Groundwater calling it a "solid slow burner that continues the Spanish pop star's winning streak."[8]
