With Eleven #1s Prince
Royce Tops Billboard 2011 Latin Charts
12/10/11 - LatinRapper.com news / Digital Girl Press Release
Billboard magazine's Year
End Issue's Latin Charts illustrate the success story of Latin
music's biggest breakthrough artist in years, 22-year old
singer-songwriter Prince Royce, who topped 11 Billboard Year
End Latin Charts: #1 Top Latin Album, #1 Top Latin Artist-
Male, #1 Top Latin Album Artist, #1 Hot Latin Song (for
"Corazon Sin Cara"), #1 Hot Latin Songs Artists, #1 Tropical
Albums, #1 Tropical Albums Artist, #1 Tropical Songs, #1
Tropical Songs Artist, #1 Tropical Digital Songs Artist, #1
Hot Latin Songwriter (as Geoffrey "Prince Royce" Rojas).
What makes Prince Royce's chart standing even more astonishing
are the colleagues that share the top Latin chart spots with
the debut indy-label artist - industry veterans including
crossover artists such as Shakira, Enrique Iglesias and
"Thank you, thank you, thank you once again for all of this to
my fans, my music label Top Stop Music, my work team, radio
and retail who have supported me from the beginning. . . I
appreciate the amazing opportunity to be part of this industry
and I promise to keep making great music and evolving with
each production," expressed Prince Royce upon receiving news
of his eleven #1s on the Billboard charts.
Prince Royce's self-titled debut album has been certified
Triple Platinum in the US and Puerto Rico, making him the only
Latin music artist to achieve triple platinum status in 2011.
He has also just completed his second sold out US Tour, this
one alongside Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull, and has also sold
out two European tours in the last year and a half.
These milestones come on the heels of many others recently
achieved by the Dominican-American singer/songwriter who has
proven himself as the hottest new artist Latin music has seen
in years. Royce was nominated for a 2010 Latin Grammy (for
Best Contemporary Tropical Album), won three 2011 Premio Lo
Nuestro Awards; four 2011 Latin Billboard Awards and four 2011
Premios Juventud Awards. Royce was also nominated for a 2011
Latin Grammy for "Best Urban Song" alongside Daddy Yankee for
their song "Ven Conmigo" and just last week received five 2012
Premio Lo Nuestro nominations. He recently recorded the
bachata version of "El Verdadero Amor Perdona" with Maná and
the track is currently #1 song on US Latin radio for the
second consecutive week.
Via a joint venture between Top Stop Music and Atlantic
Records, Royce has entered into an exclusive, long-term,
worldwide recording deal with Atlantic Records for all future
English and Spanish albums. Top Stop Music is an independent
boutique record label and management firm founded by Gregory
Elias and Sergio George.
Royce is currently putting the finishing touches on his next
musical production. His highly anticipated sophomore bachata
album will be released in April and an English-language pop
album will go on sale a few months later.
