About Toby Love
Bronx-born and crunk-educated, Toby Love likes to call his sound "crunkchata," but it sounds like Aventura's boy-band bachata to us -- and that's no coincidence. Love was a part of the group for several years before striking out on his own in 2006. Despite his embrace of bachata, Love is actually of Puerto Rican extraction, though his music has been embraced across Latin American and in the Dominican Republic (home of bachata). His 2006 self-titled debut spawned the smash hit "Tengo Un Amor"; he returned in 2008 with Love Is Back.
