Rosalía and Rauw Alexander have released their latest song RR, his new three-song EP. The EP includes “Kiss”, “Vampires” and “Promise”. They also shared a music video for “Beso,” which culminates in a shot of Rosalía crying and wearing what looks like a diamond engagement ring. Listen to the new songs below and see the image of “Kiss”.
In September 2021, Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro confirmed that they were in a relationship. A few months later, Rosalía released her motomami single “Chicken Teriyaki”, which he co-wrote with Alejandro.
RR chronicles the couple’s romantic journey. “For us it is always love first and everything else after, but we skipped that this time so we can finish RR and share it with the world,” Rosalía said in a press release. “After more than three years these three songs are here and each one of them belongs to a different stage of love.”
Alejandro added: “We always knew we wanted to make music together. However, with our relationship being the center of attention, we had to find the right moment. It’s been a long time and finding a way to capture all my feelings for her in three songs has been almost impossible. This means that I will spend my days writing and writing many more songs about her and with her. We are delighted with this project. RR forever!”
The music video for “Beso” includes never-before-seen private footage captured by the artists during their travels in Japan, Puerto Rico, Spain, the Dominican Republic, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and more.
Rosalía shared her new single, “LLYLM,” in January. She took home the trophy for Best Alternative or Latin Rock Album at the 2023 Grammy Awards just a few days later. Last fall, she won multiple awards for motomami also at the 2022 Latin Grammys, including Album of the Year, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Recording Package and Best Engineered Album.
Raw Alejandro’s most recent album, SaturnIt came out in November. Since then, the Puerto Rican star has released new songs with Daddy Yankee and Ángel Dior. Now, he is currently in the middle of a North American tour in support of Saturn.
