The bachata star says he'll have a new single out as soon as July.
Romeo Santos has won the ASCAP Latin Songwriter of the Year award before, but he says the third time was the charm.
"It's the first time I'm receiving this recognition alone," he tells Billboard. The award comes after notching a number of No. 1 singles on Billboard's Latin charts -- including a track with Usher, "Promise."
"He was amazed that someone was selling out the Staples Center but he didn't know who it was," Santos says of connecting with the R&B star.
