Over the years, the artist born Geoffrey Royce Rojas has carried his Caribbean roots in his music, giving bachata a modern twist as heard in many of his innovative collaborations such as “Adicto” with Marc Anthony, and “Déjà Vu” with Shakira. While taking the genre up a notch, he’s also placed a total of 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard Tropical Airplay chart.
His cover of Ben E. King’s “Stand by Me” earned him his first entry on the chart in 2010, “Carita de Inocente” spent more than 25 weeks at No. 1, and most recently, he captured another No. 1 with his 2021 single “Lao’ a Lao.”
“Every time one of my songs gets to No. 1, the overwhelming feeling is gratefulness,” he previously told Billboard.
