Since the release of her single “Con Altura” in 2019, Spanish singer and actress Rosalia has been the subject of numerous dating rumors.
Despite numerous reports linking her to everyone from Bad Bunny to J Balvin, the 29-year-old has kept her personal life private… until now.
Rosalia confirmed her relationship with Puerto Rican rapper Rauw Alejandro in an Instagram post. Rosalia captioned the photo “Bliss” after the couple spent her 29th birthday playing video games together.
So, who is Rauw Alejandro, and what is his story? Everything you need to know about Rosalia’s new boyfriend is right here.
Since 2018, Rauw Alejandro has been displaying his connection with Rosalia.
Rosalia, who is primarily known for her current flamenco interpretations, released her first flamenco classics CD in 2017.
Since then, it appears that Rauw (actual name: Ral Ocasio Ruiz) has been her biggest supporter. Following the announcement of their relationship, followers soon flocked to social media to demonstrate how much Rauw adores Rosalia.
“RAUW X ROSALA” with a bunch of side-eye emojis was Rauw’s tweet in 2018, and in a 2019 interview with MoluscoTV, he admitted, “I have a crush on Rosalia.”
Even though his feelings for Rosalia were well-known by 2020, he continued to brag about her in another interview with Latin TV star Tony Dandrades.
“I’m not going to lie, Rosalia is the most beautiful lady I’ve ever seen,” he remarked at the time, before going on to say that he has been doing everything he can to catch her attention.
In 2020, the couple also collaborated on a song called “Dile an Él,” which translates to “inform him.”
Now, all of Rauw’s seeming compliments have paid off, as the two are now officially dating. Fans began to notice that the two were uploading images from the same residence in March 2020, and one of Rosalia’s photos even included Rauw’s car.
Rosalia and Rauw weren’t ready to announce the news with their fans on Instagram until September 2021.
“Even if the sun sets, the day never ends with you,” Rauw wrote his first Instagram photo with Rosala. Since then, the couple has published a number of PDA photos on social media, and fans have reacted positively. Rosalia’s tweet of the couple vacationing together even drew a heart-eye emoji from Kylie Jenner.
It’s very cute!
Rosalia, did she ever date Bad Bunny?
In 2019, the public began to believe that Rosalia and Bad Bunny were dating after seeing cute photos of the two singers on Instagram, one of which Bad Bunny posted in Spanish, “Creo que me enamoré.”
Rosalia, on the other hand, has denied dating the Conejo Malo, telling Entertainment Tonight at the time, “He’s a buddy of mine. He’s a great pal.”
After all, Bad Bunny is still happily married to his reported fiancée, Gabriela Berlingheri, who made news in August 2020 when she tweeted a video of herself dancing along to a catchy melody in a car, and admirers were quick to notice the huge diamond she was wearing on her left hand.
In September 2021, the couple made their red carpet debut, only days before Rosalia’s first post featuring Rauw.
So, now that Rosalia and Rauw are Instagram official, we can finally put those dating rumors to rest!
