Prince Royce Biography (Age)
Prince Royce was born Geoffrey Royce Rojas on 11th of May 1989. He was born and raised in The Bronx, New York City. His parents are both Dominicans and he is the second of 4 children. He was quite an early bloomer as he sang in the choir and competed in talent shows while in elementary school. The famed star began writing poetry as a young teenager and eventually switched to songwriting. He started recording his own music at the age of 15 but got his big break at age 19 when he signed his first recording deal.
Royce got signed to Top Stop Music in 2009 after the founder of the label Sergio George listened to 3 of his demos. He set to work immediately and by March 2010, he took the Latin music scene by storm with the release of his self-titled debut album Prince Royce which topped both the US Billboard Latin Albums chart as well as the Tropical Albums chart. The album spawned 2 hit singles “Stand by Me” and “Corazón Sin Cara” both of which peaked atop the Billboard Tropical Songs chart with the latter also reaching No. 1 on the US Hot Latin Songs chart.
