Romeo Santos offered other statements at the Billboard Latin Music conference. The singer of “Centavito” bets on the future of bachata. “That artists like Rosalía, Manuel Turizo, C. Tangana, want to venture into bachata, that is a sign that something is happening, a genre that was born in the Dominican Republic under rejection. So, today there is a bachata in the Top Spotify Global and I understand that even if it is not Prince Royce, even if it is not this server, it is a bachata. We are winning as Latinos, as a culture, as bachateros, “he reflected.
Similarly, the impact of music in Spanish was discussed.
“It’s a fact, it’s not invented. Music in Spanish is the second most consumed in the world,” he told Efe Leila Cobo, chief executive of Billboard Latino, at the opening of the event.
Santos, nominated for a Latin Grammy in the category of Best Long Version Music Video together with the group Aventura & Bad Bunny in the category of Best Fusion/Urban Interpretation with the song “Volví”, highlighted that an example of the good health of the genre is that the Spanish Rosalía has entered with a song like “Pañuelo”..
Regarding his latest album, “Fórmula Vol.3”, he highlighted the collaborations of Justin Timberlake (“Endless”) and Christian Nodal (“I miss myself”). Both, he argued, are a sign of his spirit to innovate.
“I always take risks and try to do something different,” he said, in addition to pointing out that, in any case, he likes to follow his instinct and that “everything flows.”
In another order, he announced that he will donate $120,000 to Puerto Rico for the damages suffered by the Caribbean island after the passage of Hurricane Fiona.
Santos has a career that has led him to win 17 Billboard Latin Music Awards, 8 Lo Nuestro Awards, 2 Youth Awards, 4 Guinness World Records and 2 Latin American Music Awards, among other awards.
