Rauw Alejandro Facts
- During his childhood, Rauw and his father had lived for quite a few years in the United States, mostly in Miami and New York City. This is where he was massively influenced by the R&B and dancehall musical genres. In his childhood, he used to compete in several talent shows as both he and his sister had a passion for dancing.
- Between the age of 6 and 20, he had also played a lot of soccer but had to quit the sport after an injury. Before his involvement with the sport had come to an abrupt end, he had even moved to Orlando, Florida, to attempt to get scouted to play in the Premier Development League (PDL). His effort was unsuccessful.
- The pain of giving up on his beloved sport had left him in a mild depression which had forced him to look for an alternate career option. He took to music and by 2014, had started releasing his songs on the SoundCloud platform.
- In November 2016, he had released his debut mixtape titled Punto de Equilibrio. The success of the tape had seen him sign a contract with the record label Duars Entertainment in January 2017.
- In 2018, he was selected by Sony Music Latin to join Los Próximos, a musical project to enlist new musical talents for the label.
- He is a childhood friend of fellow Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA. They had attended school together.
- In April 2022, Rauw and Shakira teamed up for a new song titled Te Felicito.
