The bachatero Prince Royce promises with his “Classic Tour”, whose US leg will begin in Miami on September 16, concerts in which the classics of a career of more than ten years will not be lacking, about which he celebrates but in passing ” a reflection”.
“There will be some different arrangements, but I am a lover of listening to a song the way the album sounds, and that is what I will deal with, the main essence of the songs,” said the New Yorker about what this tour planned for 2020 will be but that he had to cancel cause of the Covid-19 pandemic.
After a tour of Europe, Royce will make fifteen stops in the United States until mid-October with his “Classic Tour”, a tour that reaffirms his position in Latin music as the quintessential representative of bachata, a genre whose birth certificate is in the Dominican Republic but that the Bronx has made its own.
“There will be ups and downs, but I believe that good music always breaks and will remain, and my goal is to represent the genre”, take it to the top, said the voice of “Darte Un Beso”.
The artist states that since the beginning of his career his focus has been on selling music and not scandals or “extra-musical problems”, which can sometimes be seen as a kind of promotional strategy that is used when a certain artist releases an album or easy.
“Thank God, I have had the happiness of not being in so many scandals, and rather I have managed to connect with my music and touch hearts with it,” said the interpreter, who has more than 79 million followers on his social networks and Choose a balance between your personal and professional life.
A personal life currently in a “healing phase”, as he acknowledged, after the divorce this year from his ex-wife, actress Emeraude Toubia, with whom he had a relationship for more than a decade.
“Now I’m focused on myself and my music, and it’s time to stay positive,” said the interpreter.
Six studio albums, 24 Billboard Latin Music Awards and 22 number ones on the radio give him the green light for experimentation and forays into other genres, as well as collaborations with artists such as Daddy Yankee, Shakira, Jennifer López, J Balvin and Bad Bunny, among others.
But at the same time he salutes that he has been able to take some of them to the land of bachata, as is the case with Nicky Jam and Jay Wheeler, with whom he recorded the song “Si te interrogan…” and which is the first time of the singers in this musical genre.
“There is a new flow for tropical music, we see Rosalía with The Weeknd recording a bachata (for the single “La Fama”), Manuel Turizo, C Tangana the same. It’s interesting,” said the singer.
He agrees that today Latin music is experiencing a healthy fusion of genres and sounds (“like a blender”), a freedom catapulted by streaming platforms and without dependence on international radio.
“When I started there weren’t as many opportunities for new artists, but now it’s more common to see a new artist who is successful, and it’s nice that we can collaborate with each other,” he stressed.
Always with bachata as the backbone of his career, Royce is preparing new singles and even a new album, where his desire for experimentation will not condition his goal of putting “at the top” of the genre that placed him in the Olympus of Latin music.
