Alejandro played soccer from the ages of 7 to 20, and in a 2019 interview with Tidal, he stated:
“I played for the [Puerto Rican] national team; I had a college scholarship, I traveled to the U.S. to play in the PDL (Premier Development League). That was the dream — to be a famous fútbol player. But everything was against me because the country didn’t help me fully develop. I got to a moment where I’m 20 and I had to ask myself, ‘What am I doing?’ I didn’t see a huge future in it. I decided to get into music as a hobby. Doing it as fun, next thing you know I’m in it.“
