Dominican bachata-merengue singer Frank Reyes had his breakthrough after Sony released his album Estelares de Frank Reyes on September 2, 1997. Known as Bachata's prince, Frank Reyes achieved a Casandra award, a major local recognition, as well as being nominated by Acroarte, the Dominican art journalists association, for best Bachata performer. After issuing 1998's Vine a Decirte Adios, the tropical artist returned with 1999's Extraño Mi Pueblo, produced by himself and Rafael Núñez, later, getting into the new millenium with Amor en Silencio. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
