Prince Royce: 2012 Album Preview
Prince Royce
Title: TBA | Release Date: Summer; TBA

Bronx-born Prince Royce ( @planetroyce), 22, is a former cellphone salesman turned one of the Latin music's most notable artist development success stories. Known for his cool and suave Spanish-language hits, his self-titled Latin debut topped Billboard's Latin charts in 2010 and secured him a spot on Enrique Iglesias' Euphoria tour that also featured Pitbull. Now, he's set to return with two projects -- a bachata-themed album led by the single "Las Cosas Pequeñas" /"The Small Things," and his first English-language pop album, due later this year. "One day I was watching Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull on TV, then one year later I was hanging out with them backstage," he says. "When I first started out, some people said I was wasting my time and money, but I never gave up. I was 14 when I started singing and got signed to a record label at 20. I'm proof that you can make your dreams happen."
