Some of TODAY’s viewers may have wondered what all the fuss was about on the plaza this morning. But thousands of fans — some who lined up down the block — already knew: They were there to see the King of Bachata, Romeo Santos!
If the crowd didn’t tip you off, Santos is a major, major star in Latin music.
Here to kick off our weeklong #VivaTODAY series, Santos is a multi-platinum-selling performer who was ranked by Billboard as the Top Latin Music Artist of 2014.
A Bronx native, he famously sold out two shows at Yankee Stadium, and his 2013 song “Propuesta Indecente” has over 663 million views on YouTube.
