Fórmula Vol. 1
Label: Sony Music Latin
Romeo Santos wisely doesn't deviate far from Aventura's Formula, dousing his first solo album in sweet-talking, hip-hop-infused shuffle-and-roll bachata-pop. But this is also Santos' chance to declare himself king of bachata and of the genre's crossover turf. So he cozies up to sleek dance-pop, dramatic Latin balladry, sultry booty-hop (see the Lil Wayne-featuring "All Aboard") and a host of high-profile guests from La Mala Rodriguez to Usher to George Lopez (!). It's a slick campaign that'll quickly convince you of how far Santos' "bad" boy charm and feathery tenor can take him.
