Prince Royce is the hottest young Latino singer in the world right now, coming off the amazing success of his Multi-Platinum self-titled debut album which hit #1 on The Billboard Latin Charts and Tropical Album Charts, which generated two #1 hits in “Stand By Me” (It’s his awesome remake of Ben E. King’s classic which he also got to perform with the legendary singer on stage at the Latin Grammy Awards this year) and “Corazon Sin Cara”, and earning him three awards at the Premio Lo Nuestro Awards (He was the big winner of the night), including Tropical Male Artist of the Year. He also received four more awards at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in 2011 (While being nominated for 6!!), which included Tropical Album of the Year for Prince Royce, and was nominated for a Latin Grammy for Best Contemporary Tropical Album at the 2010 Latin Grammy Awards. He has been called “The Latino Usher” because of his tremendous meteoric rise in music like the icon himself off his debut album working with the Latino hit maker, Sergio George who is the biggest and most successful producer in Latin Music right now, who just won “Producer Of The Year” at the 2010 Latin Grammys, and has helped develop artists like India, Anaís, Marc Anthony, Tito Nieves, Víctor Manuelle, Frankie Negrón, Johnny Rivera, Ray Sepúlveda, Tito Puente, DLG, Orquesta de la Luz, Celia Cruz, La India, Jerry Rivera, Bacilos, among others, and who’s Top Stop Records just signed a deal with Atlantic Records to produce Prince Royce’s first English speaking album which will no doubt be a chart topper much like his debut, and his first single that is a sneak peek to the album, called “Addicted” (Linked here..I already bought it on Itunes because the song is just awesome!!), which gives you a nice taste of the talent this kid brings to the game with his sweet melodic voice and unique Bachata sound.
Prince Royce’s style and success has been likened to some of the biggest names in music right now like Bruno Mars and Marc Anthony, and to top it all off, he is on a sold out major arena tour right now, called “Euphoria”, with 2 of the biggest heavyweights in all of music, Enrique Iglesias and “Mr Worldwide” himself, Pitbull, which Iglesias personally asked him to be a part of, which will help add even more momentum to the already millions of fans and worldwide support that is propelling this kid to the top of the music kingdom. Here, “The King Of Kamelot”, acting as a correspondent for Pop Culture Madness, sits down with the Latino Sensation backstage at the second stop on the tour to have an intimate discussion about tremendous success he is enjoying, the personal invitation from Iglesias to join the tour, what it’s like to be on tour with 2 of the biggest names in music, and sooo much more…I even get him to sing at the end of the video so make sure to tune in to that part…On a personal note, it was crazy to see the reaction that Royce got during his set, especially from the thousands of young females in attendance, and the kid is amazingly humble, grounded, and couldn’t have been nicer to hang out with! This is someone who is blowing up right before your eyes, and yet he is one of the nicest and down to Earth individuals you will ever encounter which makes you want to cheer for him that much more..Kade Nation/Pop Culture Madness World will fall in love with this kid just like the rest of the world is..HUGE thank you to Jennifer Nieman of The Nieman Group and Hector Rivera of Top Stop who helped set everything up and were just awesome in accommodating me and my team
I also was able to hang out backstage all night and meet Pitbull and his whole team, and got to chill out with some of his team who were all super cool!!
