Romeo Santos plays Yankee Stadium
It's been a monster year for Romeo Santos. One that he's shared with thousands of adoring fans and some of the biggest names in music --- and it's not over yet.
Santos released his second studio album, "Formula, Vol. 2" back on February 25, 2014. It contained collaborations with a literal Who's Who of the music industry, including Drake, Marc Anthony, Nicki Minaj, Carlos Santana, Kevin Hart and Tego Calderon. The project's first two singles were "Propuesta Indecente" and "Odio," which spent 17 combined weeks atop the Hot Latin Songs Charts and remained in the top 5 for over 30 weeks. Both have been Santos' highest-charting songs on the Hot 100, peaking at numbers 79 and 45, respectively.
While all the success was certainly welcome, the highlight of the year thus far for the Bronx-born musician was playing Yankee Stadium for two sold-out nights in July. He told some 50,000+ in attendance, "If Madonna, if Paul McCartney, if Metallica can sell out Yankee Stadium… Latinos can sell out this s&mdasht too!"
Santos later told Huffington Post, It was a little stressful…to put on two shows of that magnitude on the production level. It takes a lot of work. I feel proud to say that I'm part of a very short list of artists who have completed a feat of this magnitude and I'm the first Latino to do it."
A few weeks later Santos was the biggest winner at Premios Juventud 2014, helping Sony Music Latin to dominate in all music categories and score 11 new awards for the label. Santos, who took home five awards, elicited screams from audience members while performing "Eres Mia," the third single from "Formula Vol 2. "
Romeo Santos climbing the charts again (Updated 9/27/13)
Romeo Santos not only remains one of today's most popular Latin music superstars, he's climbing the charts again to prove it.
Santos has taken his latest single "Propuesta Indecente" to the top of the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart after weeks of battling some fierce competition. Among the other Top 10 songs were the likes of Prince Royce's "Darte Un Beso" and Enrique Iglesias' "Loco."
The lucky charm for Santos could be attributed to the enormous popularity of the video that was made for "Propuesta Indecente," produced by Virgin Films and directed by Joaquin Cambre, with promotional photography done by Nicolas Trovato. In the video, filmed on the steps of the National Library and in the San Miguel Palace in Argentina, Santos can been seducing actress Eiza Gonzalez while she's in the company of another man. The pair then escape together in a red car through the streets of Buenos Aires.
Santos next album, "Formula Vol. 2," is scheduled for a release late in 2013. "Propuesta Indecente" is the first single from the album, released on July 30. It quickly hit number one on iTunes and Amazon before climbing the Billboard chart. It follows "Formula Vol. 1," which debuted all the way back in 2011. That was followed by a national arena tour in 2012, which included dates in New York City, Boston, Las Vegas, Miami and San Diego, among other cities.
No doubt, a tour will follow for the release of "Formula Vol. 2," so be sure to stay up to date on ticket info here at SeatGeek!
About Romeo Santos: From Aventura to solo artist
Romeo Santos is a composer and former lead singer of the Bachata group Aventura. Often called a charismatic and captivating performer, the Bronx native has been writing and performing since he was just a teen.
From the beginning, Romeo's love of penning songs would lead him in the right direction to kick start a career. He became a member of his church choir with his cousin Henry, and shortly thereafter, the pair would join Max and Lenny Santos to form the quartet that would take bachata music and mesh it with hip hop and R&B sounds. The end result was a string of hits like "Obsesion," "Cuando volveras," "Todavia me amas," "Hermanita" and so many more.
However, the story of Aventura is only a small part of the musician Romeo Santos has become.
Today, Romeo is a jack of all trades in the industry. As a producer, composer and vocalist he has captured awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers) and Billboard. As performed and recorded by Aventura, "Obsesion" took on a life of its own and was recorded by artists around the world. In 2006 a cover of the song by Frankie J was No. 1 on the mainstream charts for nearly 22 weeks, winning Romeo the ASCAP Song of the Year in both tropical music and American pop.
In music circles, it is known that Romeo is extremely selective in the artists he now writes for. Beyond that, his solo debut album, entitled "Formula," bowed in 2011. All of the Bachata tracks were written, arranged and produced by only one man – Romeo.
