Six Degrees of Prince Royce
by Rachel Devitt | October 11, 2013
He's the crown Prince of bachata, of Latin pop and maybe even of mainstream pop (thanks to chart-cracking single "Darte Un Beso") -- and he's only been in the game about three years! Prince Royce is undeniably a hot young influence on the Latin music world. So what are his influences, his inspirations? In this quick breakdown, we dig into the artists and sounds that contributed to Royce's sweet-talking, pop-leaning, uber-romantic new album, Soy El Mismo. You'll find duet partners (Thalia!), bachateros who came before him (Romeo Santos!), R&B pop cohorts (Jason DeRulo!) and even a surprise visit from Blu Cantrell -- plus new cuts from Soy El Mismo.
