TODAY’s New York Times Herald’s Romeo Santos In An Arts COVER Story On Latin Music’s Top New Albums:
“[Romeo] Santos has figured out how to let crossover come to him. …on “Formula Vol. 2, he sticks almost entirely to bachata — and Mr. Santos refuses to clutter it or pump in bass. Even when guests drop by, like Carlos Santana on guitar or rappers including Nicki Minaj and Drake, they’re usually set among the pithy bachata guitars. True to bachata tradition, most of the songs are about love — usually unhappy love, laced with jealousy, rivalry and regrets, and sung with melancholy tension. But tucked midway through the album is “No Tiene La Culpa” (“He’s Not to Blame”), which sympathizes with a gay man who’s constantly under attack. It’s a brave moment of social consciousness amid all the elegantly phrased lust and intrigue. “Formula Vol. 2” went to No. 1 on the Latin chart, and Mr. Santos is to headline Yankee Stadium on July 12; he’s doing something right.” – New York Times

“Romeo Santos Has More #1 Chart Hits Than ANY Other Latin Music Artist This Decade” – Billboard
“Romeo Santos may be the most important New York pop star of the last decade. It was Santos’s former band, Aventura, who brought Dominican bachata to Latin hit radio, blending bachata’s jittery guitars and lush melodies with hip-hop and R&B. Santos left Aventura to go solo in 2011, and has spent more or less the entire time since perched at the upper reaches of the Latin charts” – New York Magazine
“Romeo Santos is the Bachata King… You can’t turn on a Latin radio station without hearing Romeo … [Bachata] is going to become even more contagious… [Romeo] OWNS The #1 spot on the Latin charts …Santos has what it takes to win over English-speaking fans.” – USA TODAY
