MIAMI, Florida (APRIL 1, 2013). Singer songwriter Prince Royce, the biggest breakthrough artist Latin music has seen in many years, continues to score with hit after hit. . . “Te Me Vas”, the third single off his second album “PHASE II” is the #1 song on US Latin radio, according to Billboard, Mediabase and BDS. “Te Me Vas” which reached #1 on the Tropical Airplay chart in February and remained at the top spot for many weeks, is now at #1 not only on the US Latin Airplay list, but also it is also #1 on the Latin Pop Airplay list.
With this #1, “PHASE II” now has had three #1 tracks. Previous singles, “Las Cosas Pequeñas” and “Incondicional”, also held the #1 spot on US Latin radio.
“As always, I am extremely grateful to my fans for their unwavering support and my radio promotion team, Latin Hits Entertainment, who have believed in me from the very beginning. Thank you Al Zamora and Javier Huerres in the US and Robert Santos in Puerto Rico,” Royce said.
Prince Royce has just signed a major recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment with plans to release Spanish-language Bachata/Pop albums through Sony Music Latin as well as English-language Pop albums via RCA Records. Fans can expect Prince Royce’s first Spanish-language album under Sony to be released this fall with an English-language release slated for 2014. Besides working on his next two albums, the artist has just started work as one of the coaches on “La Voz Kids”, the US Latin version of “The Voice” but with kids as the protagonists. “La Voz Kids” starts airing on Telemundo this May.
