Prince Royce took a huge career step by releasing his first English album Double Vision this summer, but the Bronx-born singer is returning to his Latin roots for a new tune.
"Culpa al Corazón" (which translates to "Blame the Heart") sees Royce once again embracing the bachata sound with which he became famous. The cut centers around the star's smooth crooning and tender guitar strumming, a.k.a. the cornerstones of any great bachata song. It's certainly a homecoming for the singer, who's earned at least one No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart for each of his three bachata albums.
Royce gave a statement about the song, pacifying fans who might have thought he'd ditched Spanish for English entirely:
"I simply wanted to release a new song especially for the fans that miss my bachata music. It is something that I recorded with them in mind so they know that although I am promoting my debut English-language album it doesn't mean I will stop recording in Spanish."
The new single previews Royce's new bachata album, which he said will be released next year.
