What is Rosalia age? The singer was born on September 25, 1993, in Sant Esteve Sesrovires, Barcelona, Spain. She is currently 25 years old and managed by her mother, Rebeca León.

Like many other artists, Rosalia developed a passion for music during her childhood. She had her first experience in singing at 7 when she was asked to sing in front of their family gathering. Two years later, she received a guitar as a gift from her parents, which inspired her to join Catalonia College of Music at 13.
The singer went on to develop an interest in flamenco, a popular music genre in southern Spain. She learnt it for eight years under the guidance of Andalusian musician José Miguel "El Chiqui" Vizcaya and graduated in 2017 with a bachelors degree in Flamenco and Music Production. Interestingly, Barcelona only accepts one person a year to study flamenco.
How tall is the singer? The beautiful singer is neither too tall nor too short. She stands at 165.5 cm. Her weight is 58kg.
The 25-year-old was a familiar face in bars and restaurants during her early years, not for any other mission but to sing. She even competed in the talent TV show 'Tú Sí Que Vales' back in 2008 but was eliminated in the early stages. She never gave up and used the outcome as a motivation to work hard and continue chasing her dreams. Through her YouTube channel, she would post her songs, which attracted more views from the public.
Rosalia released her first album, Los Ángeles in 2017, followed by her second album, El Mal Querer (Bad Love) in 2018, both of which she wrote alone.
