'She's amazing': Rauw Alejandro speaks out about their relationship

While chatting with Entertainment Tonight at the 2021 Latin Grammys in mid-November, the singer called Rosalía "perfect" after being asked what first attracted him to her.

"She’s beautiful,” he added before touching on her Rolling Stone En Español cover which had come out that month. “I’m really proud, man. She’s amazing. She deserves everything that happened, that is happening en su carerra (in her career). She works really hard and, you know, (I’m) really happy man.”

Rauw Alejandro talks about his drama-free relationship and working with Rosalía

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Alejandro shared insight on his and the Spanish star's relationship.

“There’s people that love drama, and we’re not like that,” he said in his cover interview for the month of February 2022. “There’s a bunch of pop stars where it’s like the whole telenovela, and I hate that s--t. I really hate that s--t. We’re real stuff. We’ve been together for a while.”

With the two superstars' careers booming, fans wondered if they'd ever collaborate on a song. The singer said that have discussed the possibility, but don't have plans to work together at the moment.

“We respect each other. That’s the main thing,” he said. “We’re not focused on doing music together. If it happens, yeah, of course. We plan to do it, but it’s not going to happen now.”

Rosalía shows off her tattoo seemingly dedicated to her boyfriend

During an April 2022 appearance on the Spanish talk show “El Hormiguero,” the singer was asked if she had any meaningful tattoos. She replied by taking off her left shoe and showing of a "RR" tattooed on the sole of her foot.

While the host asked if it was the Rolls Royce logo, she said, “Or it could be something else,” seemingly teasing it was for her and Alejandro.
