Shakira and Rauw Alejandro recently released the song “I congratulate you”, which has been a success so far due to its rhythm and lyrics, which is why the Colombian recently confessed some secrets about the collaboration.
“One day we were in Miami listening to my album and thinking about possible collaborations, and I told Afo (CEO of Sony Music Latin Iberia) that I really liked Rauw, I liked his sound,” he mentioned in an interview with announcer Enrique Santos.
Likewise, Shakira recalled the first time she spoke on the phone with Rauw Alejandro and expressed the emotion she felt to working with him, to which the Puerto Rican reacted in the same way.
What advice did Shakira give Rauw Alejandro?
Shakira, considered one of the most important Latinas in the world of music, also recounted a meeting she had with him: “One day when I was in Barcelona with Rosalía they stopped by the house and I played them a couple of songs from my new album, and when I played ‘I congratulate you’ and he went crazy.”
At the same time, the Colombian confessed that on that occasion she told him: “This is the one I thought for you”, as well as revealed that they both liked the song a lot.
In addition, he reported that the announcer Enrique Santos: “Now you have the song in common with Rauw Alejandro, and both have Spanish partners”, and asked him what he recommended to carry his relationship with the Spanish.
Shakira replied: “In the video, I tighten some nuts on Rauw Alejandro, I have left it as good as new for Rosalía, so she no longer has to worry… The nuts are well tightened.”
