Los Angeles (EFE).- Rosalía and her representative, Rebeca León, broke their working relationship amicably, after 6 years of working together, Billboard magazine reported on Wednesday.
The separation took place on good terms and with “gratitude and pride for everything they have achieved together”, detailed that specialized media in the music industry. Up to now, the flamenco pop star has not announced who will be her new agent.
Juanes presented them
León, who has also directed the careers of J Balvin and Juanes, began working with the Catalan when she had no contract and had not yet recorded the album “El mal querer”, which catapulted her to international fame in 2018.
It was Juanes himself, with whom León started the production company Lionfish Studios, who put them in contact after the Colombian was impressed with the singer’s talent.
“(Juanes) saw Rosalía 2 years ago at a show in Madrid in front of very few people and she told me that she had seen the daughter of Björk and Whitney Houston,” León told a conference offered in 2019.
In the same talk, the agent stressed that Rosalía’s “power” and the unusualness of her musical proposal led her to become interested in her.
The respect was mutual, as the singer of “Malamente” expressed her admiration for her representative on several occasions.
“I am lucky to be able to work with someone who inspires me, a strong woman,” Rosalía said of León in 2019.
The agent managed to get Rosalía to go from Sony Music to Columbia Records, a record company that has singers like Adele, Beyoncé, Céline Dion, Bob Dylan or Harry Styles among its artists.
With León on her team, the Catalan also achieved her first Grammy nomination and, in 2022, her album Motomami earned her a Latin Grammy for best album of the year.
Rosalía has just finished the tour of her latest album and already has new performances scheduled, such as the Coachella (California) festival in April.
León, for his part, has just closed a content contract with Sony Music, was a producer of the film “The Father of the Bride” and is developing a project together with playwright Steven Levinson for HBO.
