The stories behind 10 of the hottest midyear hits from Prince Royce, Romeo Santos and Marc Anthony
The sound of tropical-laced romance dominated radio airwaves for the first half of the year, according to Billboard's Hot Latin Songs recap of hits charting in the issues dated Dec. 7, 2013 through June 28, 2014. The style was a softening of sorts from the more uptempo urban fare that has permeated Latin music for the past couple of years. Save for two tracks - the life-affirming "Vivir Mi Vida" and "Adrenalina" - in these hits, it's all about the girl, as sung by the boys. Prince Royce's No. 1-ranking title, "Darte un Beso" (Give You a Kiss), says it all.
