Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro discuss how romance has affected their careers
In the cover story Notice board, The adorable pair revealed that they are determined to keep their romantic life away from the prying eyes of the public. Taking the lead, Rosalía explained that the couple wanted to solidify their love.
“We wanted to consolidate our relationship and build its foundations, then if the music wanted to come, it will come,” said the Spanish singer.
Speaking up, her doting fiance shared similar sentiments, adding, “Also, we were at different stages in our careers and we wanted to get our fans to focus on what we were doing, which was our projects.”
Alejandro continued, “People love drama in entertainment, and a romantic relationship always comes first. We felt that if ours came out, both of our projects and our efforts for music would take second place.”
Given their passion for music, the pair found kindred spirits when they first met in a Las Vegas hotel lounge at the 2019 Latin Grammy Awards. The meeting took place after several months of virtual communication through their Instagram DMs.
Recalling the sweet moment, Alejandro described it as love at first sight, noting that Rosalía wore a black Alexander Wang jumpsuit. Following their undeniable chemistry, the duo’s affection for each other seeped into their careers when they began collaborating.
This revelation led to a debate about what the lovebirds learned from each other as artists. The “Todo de ti” singer did not miss the opportunity to praise his bride:
“Rosi has a more solid musical foundation than I do, as I’m more extroverted in my music, but she’s much more disciplined. When you work with someone in such a disciplined way, it’s impossible not to take something from them. And I am disciplined, mind you; otherwise I wouldn’t be here.”
The 30-year-old described the Spanish beauty as a “crazy-crazy workaholic” and noted that she took several dance, piano and singing lessons. The Puerto Rican sensation admitted he didn’t understand her work ethic until he tried.
“I said, ‘Okay, let me try to follow your lead and we’ll see.’ And the difference is huge. If something has a positive impact on your career, why can’t I absorb it if it contributes to my career,” said the recipient of the MTV Millennium Award.
Sharing her valuable lessons, Rosalía praised her lover for his calm air and for constantly reminding her of this. “You balance me out,” gushed the Grammy winner before agreeing that she and her man motivate each other with the same energy.
Alejandro explained that the pair supported each other, shared ideas about work and made sure they represented themselves as artists and as a couple. “We motivate each other to keep rising to an infinite level,” the songwriter proudly declared.
Cardi B confirmed the Spanish singer’s engagement to her longtime lover
A week before the Billboard cover, fans were blessed with the great news of the couple’s engagement. Rosalía has new bling on her ring finger, thanks to her hot partner, Alejandro. Cardi B, a close friend of the entertainer, confirmed the “DESPECHÁ” artist’s engagement to her love of four years.
The “WAP” rapper shared the happy news on his Instagram Story, uploading a picture of the Premio Lo Nuestro honoree rocking a giant diamond ring. “So adorable – almost made me cry,” the media personality captioned the post.
Following their announcement, the couple seemingly confirmed their engagement rumors through the emotional music video for their latest collaboration, ‘BESO’. The lovebirds started dating in 2019, but their relationship was not made public until September 2021.
Although they kept their relationship under wraps, the pair kept their fans informed of their love through rare social media posts. The soon-to-be spouses have collaborated on several projects, including the groom-to-be’s debut album, ‘Afrodisíaco’.
