As the principal composer and vocalist of revolutionary New York bachata group Aventura, ROMEO SANTOS became the leading musical voice of young U.S. Hispanics-fronting the top-selling Latin album of 2009 & 2010 and filling arena concerts across the country – including a record-setting sold-out run at Madison Square Garden that sold more tickets than Lady Gaga and Madonna. With the November 8 release of his highly anticipated solo debut album “Formula Vol. 1”, Romeo Santos fused a strong base of bachata with further elements of Urban, Pop and Latin music to create a representative new sound for our evolving bicultural and bilingual world.

Featuring collaborations with special guests such as LIL WAYNE, USHER, PITBULL, MARIO DOMM of CAMILLA, MALA RODRIGUEZ, TOMATITO, ANTHONY SANTOS & More, Formula Vol.1 has already produced two back-to-back #1 singles, and a #1 album debut with Latin Music’s strongest first week sales in over four years. Formula Vol. 1 has now held the #1 position on Billboard’s “Top Latin Albums” chart for five consecutive weeks and has already reached double-platinum sales in the U.S. Hispanic market.

“Romeo Santos — who fronted the world’s most popular Latin band — is a ladykiller with an unearthly falsetto… His solo debut blends Dominican bachata and R&B …with suave results.” – Rolling Stone

“ROMEO SANTOS: BACHATA GOES BIG-TIME … With A Will Smith-Produced ABC Sitcom, And A Solo Debut Album That Already Features Two #1’s, Romeo Santos Arrives With The New Heft Of The Latin Demo– But Aims To Reach Everyone. [Formula Vol. 1 is]an album chock full of hits– Billboard

“Formula Vol. 1 may redefine crossover: This summer, Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” dominated Latin radio airplay — until bachata singer Romeo Santos dropped “You,” an infectious, heartfelt ballad that quickly crushed everything else in rotation. With the release of his debut solo album, “Formula Vol. 1,” Santos seems poised to save an even broader swatch of listeners from mediocre radio tunes. … Part of the reason for the album’s success is that Santos doesn’t sell out bachata die-hards. [On] “Promise,” a duet with Usher, the singer manages to team up with a pop star without “going pop…The tortured love songs Santos writes and composes, including are impossible to resist, whether one understands all of the lyrics or not.”

– Washington Post

“Romeo Santos can stop traffic. Literally! Crossing the stretch of Broadway in front of the record store where the star made an appearance on Sunday was next to impossible for several hours. Thousands of fans packed in for three blocks. Some had camped overnight. …A week after release, the singer’s debut solo album, “Formula, Vol. 1” is already No. 1. “Promise,” the record’s first single, a bilingual duet with Usher, was the No. 1 Latin track even before their charming live performance at the Latin Grammys. Santos’ star is clearly on the rise.”

New York Daily News

“Like Prince, Romeo Santos’ speaking voice is a surprising departure from his singing one. …on his debut solo album, he croons in an impossibly high falsetto Spanish, laced with pathos, desire, and youthful slang. …Romantic bachata songs sway and swirl to tropical Latin rhythms as a syncopated guitar chord sets a relaxed tempo. It’s an ambitious album that speaks to the Latino experience and should resonate with listeners negotiating multiple cultures the world over.” – iTunes

CALLE 13 Receive A GRAMMY Nomination ForBest Latin Pop, Rock or Urban Album

Posted in Uncategorized on December 1, 2011 by smlpress

CALLE 13 Receive A GRAMMY Nomination For

Best Latin Pop, Rock or Urban Album

After Recently Sweeping The LATIN GRAMMY Awards – Winning EVERY Category In Which They Were Nominated And Setting New Records For Both The Most LATIN GRAMMY Awards In One Year And Most Career LATIN GRAMMYS, The Outspoken Puerto Rican Brothers of Residente and Visitante Continue To Receive Accolades From Their Musical Peers, As Their Landmark Album “Entren Los Que Quieran” (Everybody is Welcome) Receives A Nomination For The 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards

To Date In Their Career, Calle 13 Already Hold TWO GRAMMY Awards And A Record NINETEEN LATIN GRAMMY Awards

"Se lo dedicamos a todas las personas que hacen cualquier tipo de arte, sin miedo a sentir, sin miedo a expresar, sin miedo a regalar y con muchas ganas de aprender. No nos hace falta ningún tipo de reconocimiento de parte de un gobierno que no es reconocido ni respetado por nadie a nivel internacional.”-RENE PEREZ (Residente Calle 13)

“The most iconoclastic character in hip-hop — if not all of pop — might well be René Pérez, the rapper called Residente in the Puerto Rican duo Calle 13… ‘Entren Los Que Quieran’ overflows with messages about rich and poor, struggle and rebellion… The music, as on each of Calle 13’s previous albums, keeps expanding.”

– Jon Pareles, THE NEW YORK TIMES

[Calle 13 has] consistently given voice to an underlying ethic of resistance, one that’s never been quite as vociferous as it is on their fourth album, ‘Entren Los Que Quieran.’… [with] defiance, exuberance – and revolutionary fervor … [Calle 13’s] music is as globally conscious as the band’s message.”

WASHINGTON POST

"absolutely spectacular.. Entren los Que Quieran excitingly mixes cumbia, merengue, funk, reggae, rock, and hip-hop… Residente‘s absolutely overpowering raps are what make Calle 13 so special… He is in fine form on Entren los Que Quieran … another strong addition to a proud discography… Make no mistake, Calle 13 are still miles above their peers and countless imitators” – ALL MUSIC

CALLE 13 Also Recently Joined Radiohead, The Killers, Muse, And Angelina Jolie As Advocates For The MTV EXIT Campaign In Partnership With UNICEF -Launching A Multimedia Campaign To Create Awareness & Prevention Of Child Exploitation In Latin America. Just This Week, Calle 13 Unveiled Their New "Preparame la Cena" Video For The Campaign – Shining A Light On Young People Robbed Of Their Childhood. Watch It Here:
