About Prince Royce

Breakthrough Latin recording artist Prince Royce has exploded into the mainstream with his fresh urban approach to traditional bachata music, fusing Tropical Latin with contemporary R&B and pop rhythms. Royce's self-titled debut album, released in 2010, has been certified double platinum, while garnering a 2010 Latin Grammy® nomination, three 2011 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards and four 2011 Latin Billboard Awards. "Prince Royce" became the #1 Latin album in the country, more than a year after its release, marking an unprecedented achievement for a developing Latin music artist. Royce's first single, a bilingual bachata cover of the 1961 Ben E. King classic, "Stand By Me," reached the #1 position on the Billboard Tropical Airplay chart; and his second single, "Corazon Sin Cara," written by Royce himself, fared even better, shooting up to #1 on Billboard's Latin Songs chart.

The artist has had two sold-out tours in Europe, one in the U.S., and has been invited by Enrique Iglesias to be a special guest on his fall 2011 tour of North America. Royce has recently entered into an exclusive, long-term, worldwide recording deal with Atlantic Records via a joint venture with Top Stop Music to release his next albums in English and Spanish.
