The prince of modern bachata, Prince Royce has released his latest single, “My Angel,” which is featured in the upcoming movie “Furious 7” soundtrack.
Royce described to the Associated Press that his new single, which was released Tuesday, is “very sexy-romantic”.
“The guy basically tells this girl, ‘Wow, you are an angel. Where did you come from, I’ve been waiting you my whole life,’” Royce said.
Even though Royce does not appear in the movie, “Furious 7” in theaters April 7, the singer/songwriter gets to drive really fast in his music video. He said that he’s been a fan of the blockbuster series for a long time and he’s taking acting classes just in case he’s called to play a movie role.
“I’ve seen all the movies, way before being part of the project. It was a pleasure and an honor to be part of the soundtrack.”
The Latin heartthrob says that he enjoyed watching all of the movies especially when he saw his reggaeton friends.
“Every Film has been something different; No. 6 had a lot of action, we saw people like Don Omar and Tego [Calderon] that gave them some variety,” Royce said. “For me it’s also important to see how Latinos are being represented, both in music and film,” Royce told AP.
The Dominican-American singer called the recent Oscar win “progress” when Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu, the Mexican filmmaker won awards for his film “Birdman”.
“It has taken a long time for Latinos to be recognized in the Anglo world, in the American world, but I believe that every ear we are representing our culture and I believe every year we get more and more respect.”
“My goal is to represent Latinos, because although I was born in New York, My parents are Dominican and I feel very much Latino.”
