Latin pop star Prince Royce hopes to cross over
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prince Royce says although he's working on his first album in English, his fans can still expect to hear his signature Latin and tropical sound in his new music.
The 25-year-old star released his first English language single, "Stuck on a Feeling," on Monday. It features rapper Snoop Dogg and samples R&B group 112's hit song "Dance With Me."
"It's a fusion of urban, it's a fusion of R&B, it's pop, it has some Spanish," he said in a recent interview.
Royce is from the Bronx, New York, raised by Dominican parents. He was nominated for four Latin Grammys last week, including song and record of the year for "Darte un Beso."
His English album will be available next year. Royce, whose hits include "Corazon Sin Cara" and "Las Cosas Pequenas," is also working on his fourth Spanish album.
"The intention is to go 50-50," he said. "It's definitely double the work, but I think it's worth it for me."
