A Timeline of Rosalia & Rauw Alejandro’s Relationship

Rauw Alejandro and Rosalia met in person in 2019 at a Las Vegas hotel lounge during the Latin Grammys. It was love at first sight, the couple told Billboard for their cover story interview, but it seems it wasn’t meant to be.

People reported on July 26 that the Spanish singer-songwriter and Puerto Rican star have ended their relationship and decided to not move forward with their engagement. Representatives for Rosalía declined to comment. A representative for Alejandro did not immediately respond to a message from Billboard.

Just months ahead of their reported split, the former couple announced their engagement on March 24 via their music video “Beso.” It was also the same day they dropped their first-ever joint project — the three-song EP RR.

Since the moment they first met, the two artists had been each other’s biggest supporters both on and off the stage. Before RR, the couple had subtly collaborated on previous projects. Rosalía sang backing vocals on “Dile a Él” from Rauw’s first album, Afrodisiaco (2020) as well as on “Corazón Despeinado” from Saturno (2022). Meanwhile, Alejandro co-wrote some lyrics for Rosalía’s “Chicken Teriyaki” from her Grammy and Latin Grammy-winning 2022 album, Motomami.

“In terms of collaborations, the big difference is you’re collaborating with the love of your life. At least, I am,” Alejandro previously shared with Billboard. Rosalía added, “I’m lucky to be your partner, and I want to be there for you, sabes? And I feel you’re there for me, independent of the careers. For me, our relationship is first, and then there’s everything else. Of course my career is super important in my life, but at the same time, in my life, you’re my companion, and everything else comes second.”
