The former lead vocalist of Aventura has released hit after hit.
Bachata is a genre that originated in the Dominican Republic—and if you ask any Latin music fan, they'll tell you that Romeo Santos is the king of bachata. After getting his start as part of the group Aventura in 1996, the singer has gone on to have a successful solo career, racking up dozens of awards and hit singles. And he's not slowing down any time soon: Besides being recognized as the only Latin male artist on Billboard's Money Makers list and earning a whopping $14.8 million in 2018, Santos is now gearing up for his September 21 concert at MetLife Stadium—the first time a Latin artist has performed at the venue.
The Dominican and Puerto Rican singer is currently promoting his fourth solo studio album, Utopia, which reached no. 1 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart when it debuted in April and quickly entered the Top 20 of the all-genre Billboard 200.
