Despite being born in England, Cartañá spent much of her childhood in Spain. She learned English and Spanish during her years in school, as she spent time in both English and Spanish educational systems. She also knows a third language, Catalan. Cartañá spent her first year in college at the University of Greenwich, though she transferred to the University of Westminster for her second year, graduating in 2002.
Cartañá first rose to prominence as a singer with the release of her hit dance record "Shake It (Move A Little Closer)," which peaked at #16 in the UK Singles Chart. Her first solo, "Hey Papi," was released in April 2004 and showcased her Hispanic heritage. It was influenced in part by her father, who was overprotective due to the early death of Cartañá's older sister.
Cartañá has a deceased elder sister.
