Born and raised in the Bronx, Romeo Santos has spearheaded the
chart revival of bachata, fully embracing the traditional
Dominican sounds of his heritage, while incorporating modern
urban elements into a definitive new style that has become
Latin music’s most successful and distinctively New York sound
since the celebrated days of the Fania All-Stars.
Having won both Billboard
and ASCAP Songwriter of the Year honors as the featured
composer and lead singer of chart-topping superstars Aventura,
Santos became the leading musical voice of young U.S.
Hispanics as he fronted the top-selling Latin Album of 2009 &
His group’s record-setting
four-night, completely sold-out stand at Madison Square Garden
(a historic first for any Latin artist) drew over 76,000 fans
and put Santos in the select pantheon of artists such as
Madonna, Elton John, Billy Joel & Bruce Springsteen to perform
a 4-night run at the famed arena.
Now, with a rare #1 singles chart debut reaffirming the
support of millions of fans, Romeo Santos’ upcoming solo album
- including his first English tracks – will be one of this
year’s most anticipated releases.
