Prince Royce is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin by making the leap from Latin superstar to crossover-pop sensation with his first English-language LP. The lead single from the project, Snoop Dogg-assisted jam “Stuck On A Feeling,” is a great starting point for the campaign with its slick production and catchy chorus.
The Colin Tilley-directed video dropped today (December 10), and it’s a slick and stylish affair that finds the 25-year-old taking the elevator ride from hell/heaven — depending on your perspective. Sure, it’s plummeting to the ground but there’s a sexy lady to keep him company and she eventually leads him to a secret room where more raunchy shenanigans ensue. It’s an old-fashioned boy’s own adventure with a cameo from Snoop. Watch up top. More »
The holiday season in New York City isn’t official until the Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree lighting takes place — and it occurred last night (December 3)! Along with the special ceremony, a handful of musicians stopped by to perform some yuletide classics.
Mariah Carey, a.k.a the queen of the holidays, celebrated the 20th anniversary of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by performing the tune for the energetic crowd. It was definitely not her best rendition, but she still sparkled in her cranberry-red gown as she sung the jolly song.
Other performers included Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett singing “Winter Wonderland,” Pentatonix‘s take on “Santa Clause Is Coming To Town,” Cyndi Lauper on “Home For The Holidays” and Prince Royce‘s rendition of “Jingle Bell Rock.” Watch Mariah Carey perform up top, and catch the rest after the jump!

Prince Royce is hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Spanish-speaking superstars Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin with the release of his first English-language LP. The 24-year-old, who has dominated Billboard’s Latin Songs chart for the past couple of years with smash hits like “Las Cosas Pequeñas” and “Darte Un Beso”, is kicking off the project with a slick club-banger called “Stuck On A Feeling”. It even has a feature from rap legend Snoop Dogg!
The New York-born heartthrob recently dropped by the Idolator office in Los Angeles to talk about his infectious new single and upcoming album, which has he has been diligently working on for the last three years. Prince revealed that he has already recorded 110 songs for the opus with super-producers like Dr. Luke, RoccStar and Oak, and hinted at some high-profile collaborations with both Latin and English-language artists.

Bachata superstar Prince Royce is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin by launching a successful English-language music career. The 24-year-old, who has already notched up enough hits on the Latin Songs chart to warrant a compilation of #1 singles, teams up with Snoop Dogg on slick club-banger “Stuck On A Feeling”. It’s a hook-filled delight that really didn’t need a rap feature to makes waves on pop radio.
Produced by Jason Evigan (the dude behind Demi Lovato‘s “Heart Attack”, Nick Jonas‘ “Chains” and Fifth Harmony‘s “Miss Movin’ On”), “Stuck On A Feeling” sounds like a cross between an Enrique Iglesias party jam and Justified-era Justin Timberlake. Which is a very good thing. “Girl I know you’re a handful, cause you know what you like,” he croons over throbbing beats. “You might be hard to handle but Imma show you tonight.” Listen to Prince Royce’s killer anthem after the jump.

Fresh from improving international relations
in the Middle East, Selena Gomez
has returned home just in time for the release of her duet with Prince Royce
. “Already Missing You”
appears on the Latin superstar’s forthcoming LP Soy El Mismo
but surfaced online last night (October 3) — short-circuiting Selenators with its slick beats and romantic lyrics.
If you were expecting a sultry Latin-pop ballad from the adorable duo, think again. Selena and Prince take it straight to the dancefloor with the synth-pop gem. “I can not pretend I wont be lonely every minute that you’re go,” coos the “Slow Down” diva as mournfully as she can. “But trust me in the end it will be worth it because baby you’re the one,” responds the second-coming of Enrique Iglesias. Smooth. Listen to their excellent duet after the jump. More »
has recorded a sure-to-be sultry duet with Prince Royce
for his new album Soy El Mismo
. The Latin superstar, who scored his first entry on the Hot 100 this week with “Darte Un Beso”
, tweeted the LP’s tracklist this morning (August 30) and thirsty Selenators started convulsing when they saw track seven — “Already Missing You” (featuring Selena Gomez).
There are no further details at present but this is a great move for the “Slow Down” diva. She has already conquered dance, pop and rock, so it makes sense for her to tackle another genre. Hopefully it’s a soaring ballad. Selena always knocks those out of the park as “Love Will Remember” attests. See Prince’s tweet and check out his current hit after the jump. More »
