Rauw Alejandro, the Puerto Rican sensation, has poured his emotions into a poignant new track titled ‘Hayami Hana’, a musical catharsis where he candidly navigates the aftermath of his recent separation from Rosalía. The music world was abuzz last month when the former couple announced the end of their engagement and the conclusion of their more than three-year relationship.
In this soul-stirring five-minute breakup ballad, Rauw Alejandro delves into the intricate tapestry of their love story. Amidst the highs and lows that characterized their journey, he addresses swirling rumors of infidelity with unwavering candor. “I am a lot of things, but not a cheater,” he croons, as lyrically translated by Genius. The song also weaves references to Rosalía’s albums, ‘Motomami‘ and ‘Los Angeles‘, offering a heartfelt wish that one day they can fondly reminisce about the past, emphasizing that bitterness has no place in their story.
In an era where public figures often share intimate moments of their lives, Alejandro’s decision to articulate his feelings through music is a poignant testament to the depth of his emotions. The artist made it official by sharing an emotional statement across his social media platforms last month, acknowledging his audience’s role in his professional successes and personal joys. He expressed disbelief at having to address such a private matter in the public domain, underlining the intimacy of his journey.
Yes, a few months ago, Rosi and I ended our engagement. There are thousands of problems that can cause a breakup, but in our case, it was not because of infidelity or a third person. During this time that I am taking to assimilate all of this, erroneous public allegations have arisen, and out of respect for her, our families and everything we’ve experienced, I could not remain silent and continue to watch as they try to destroy the most real love story that God has allowed me to experienceRauw Alejandro
