Rauw Alejandro Seemingly Implies Rosalía Ended Their Romance In Post-Breakup Song
On Thursday, August 10, the “TAMO EN NOTA” artist dropped his farewell message to his former fiancée. The reggaeton musician rapped about being devastated by the couple’s split in the over five-minute track, implying he never wanted the breakup.
“In case we never speak again. And my favorite eyes never look at me again. I make this one for when you want to remember. Of the little boy of yours who really loved you,” the English-translated melody began.
Sharing his pain, Alejandro declared he would not pretend to be strong while suffering from Rosalía’s absence. The San Juan native noted he would miss his former flame and weep for her before hinting at the cause of their split.
The entertainer revealed the couple had their differences, from arguments to the Premios Juventud nominee’s difficulty in expressing himself. Despite their problems, it seemed the 30-year-old wished to continue their romance, but the Spanish beauty pulled the plug.
“We’ve argued. I find it hard to express myself. You already know all my shortcomings. I also have to put up with your things. But it never crossed my mind to take my mind off you,” the rapper confessed.
While his words seemingly implied his ex-lover ended their four-month engagement, the Puerto Rican sensation clarified that there were no hard feelings. According to Alejandro, the pressure of their celebrity status was a critical factor in their breakup.
“And I don’t blame you; the life we lead isn’t for everyone. The press, the networks, peer pressures. Being far away, it’s harder, easier together. We work non-stop, but to what extent?” The media personality lamented, crediting Rosalía as his sanctuary from the stress.
“Being in our little camp. It’s worth more than all the money and fame. Waking up and seeing you on my lap. I don’t feel like getting out of bed,” the passionate lyrics continued. More verses echoed the San Juan native’s love for the Billboard Women in Music honoree as he wailed about missing her.
The “RON COLA” singer recalled their last hug, claiming that if he knew it was their final moment together, he wouldn’t allow Rosalía leave. Addressing the viral cheating speculations, the media personality reaffirmed his innocence, saying: “I’ll be many things, but I’ll never be unfaithful.”
He declared the Spanish songstress always had the key to his cell and assured fans that their breakup was caused by something he had no control over. Dropping more hints about Rosalía ending their romance, the reggaeton rapper sang:
“My little glass girl, my little paper boat. You fell apart, and I tried to fix you. And though far away you left me, I stayed. Now I’m gone, but I want you to know that you’re stronger than you think.”
The Latin Grammy Award Winner Declared His Everlasting Love For His Ex-Fiancée
Alejandro continued pulling on fans’ heartstrings in “Hayami Hana,” sharing his hope for a future with the MTV VMA recipient. The San Juan native prayed the dynamic duo would someday find their past hilarious.
Clarifying the intentions behind his emotional track, the 30-year-old stressed that the song was “not a complaint.” According to the chart-topper, Rosalía gifted him with the best days of his life, and he reciprocated her love by tattooing her name on his belly.
“I gave you everything, and I’d do it all over again. I’ll finish our little house in case you want to come back,” the reggaeton rapper declared, implying his interest in a future reconciliation.
“Today I stop writing to you, not loving you,” Alejandro claimed before concluding the song with well wishes for his former lover. The entertainer believed the Spanish beauty would win more Grammys and become worthy of academic study.
