Performs Brand New Hit Single “Las Cosas Pequeñas” On Television For The Very First Time
Latin music’s hottest breakthrough artist, Prince Royce, reached yet another milestone last night at the twenty-fourth annual Premio Lo Nuestro Awards by taking home four awards, making him one of the biggest winners of the night alongside Shakira, who also garnered four awards.

Royce, who had received five nominations, won in the following categories: Collaboration of the year, Tropical Song of the Year, Male Tropical Artist of the Year and Contemporary Tropical Artist of the Year.

“Tonight has been a dream come true for me. I want to thank my fans who are responsible for granting me this amazing honor, as well as my record label, my work team, the radio stations and retail that continue to support me every day.” Royce expressed.

Royce also performed “Las Cosas Pequenas” (“The Little Things”), the first single off Royce’s second bachata álbum “Phase II”, which drops on April 10th. 

Just a week after its radio release, the song is already a hit, having debuted at # 1 on the Tropical Songs chart and # 4 on the Latin Songs chart (across all genres) in the United States & Puerto Rico according to Mediabase and Billboard.

The twenty-two year old singer/songwriter’s phenomenal success is unprecedented in the Latin music industry.  Royce closed 2011 having garnered eleven #1s on Billboard’s Year End Charts, including: #1 Latin Album of the Year; #1 Hot Latin Song of the Year (for Corazón Sin Cara), #1 Top Latin Artist – Male; and #1 Hot Latin Songwriter of the Year.  With his self-titled debut album, he has been certified triple platinum in the US and Puerto Rico and has received four 2011 Latin Billboard Awards; three 2011 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards; four 2012 Premio Lo Nuestro; four 2011 Premios Juventud Awards and two Latin GRAMMY nominations (2010 & 2011).

Prince Royce is signed to Top Stop Music, an independent boutique record label and management firm founded by Gregory Elias and Sergio George.
