For National Hispanic Heritage Month, Fuse is celebrating those who are making history with our Future Hispanic History Month. Today, we're shouting out Prince Royce, a.k.a. Bronx native Geoffrey Royce Rojas, who keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Prince Royce may be a young dude, but he's a prolific one. He's released four albums in five years, headlined two tours (with another one about to launch with Pitbull) and has won various songwriting awards, including a coveted Latin Grammy.
Royce was nearly immediately signed to Top Stop Music after the label head heard his demos, and he has since signed to Sony. As a kid, poetry came easy to the singer, so it's not a surprise that he has a knack for songwriting...the silky smooth voice is another added bonus, of course.
The bachata artist has a bunch of collaborations under his belt—including the 2013 song "Already Missing You" with Selena Gomez and 2016's "Solo Yo" with fellow Future Hispanic History Month star Sofia Reyes. And while most of his work has been in Spanish, Royce is quickly crossing over to the English language world. HIs most recent album, Double Vision, was recorded in mostly English and boasts cameos from Snoop Doog, Pitbull, Tyga, Kid Ink and the legend herself, Jennifer Lopez.
The 27-year-old's got the world wrapped around his finger too, boasting 33.5 million followers on Facebook, 6.38 million on Twitter and 6.2 million on Instagram. This guy's got a lot more for us to look forward to.
