Multi-platinum Latin recording artist Prince Royce, via a venture between Top Stop Music and Atlantic Records, has entered into an exclusive, long-term, worldwide recording deal with Atlantic Records. Born in the Bronx, New York to Dominican parents, the 22-year-old singer/songwriter/musician has exploded into the mainstream with his fresh urban approach to the island's traditional bachata music, fusing Tropical Latin with contemporary R&B and pop rhythms.
Congrats to Prince Royce on his new label deal.
Prince Royce's self-titled debut album, released in 2010, has been certified double platinum by the RIAA, while garnering a 2010 Latin Grammy® nomination (for Best Tropical Contemporary Album), three 2011 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards, four 2011 Latin Billboard Awards, and has just received eight nominations for the 2011 Premios Juventud Awards, the most of any artist. Just last month, Prince Royce became the #1 Latin album in the country, more than a year after its release, an unprecedented achievement for a developing Latin music artist.
Prince Royce's forthcoming debut Atlantic releases will include both Spanish and English language albums.
Catch the Prince on tour with Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull this Fall.
