There’s something about Romeo Santos that has women all over the world very loca (crazy). Could it be that he’s tall, dark and handsome or his sultry bachata tunes?
Santos’ fan base, known as “Romelistas,” is very responsive and loyal to the Caribbean singer; in fact, they see him as the whole package.
But they’ll be shocked to know that behind his charming personality, picture-perfect smile and dimples is a rather insecure Santos about his voice.
I dont enjoy hearing myself talk… I dont like my voice and I dont enjoy my singing voice,” he told the Huffington Post. “I do what I do to bring pleasure and diversion to the fans.”
Oh Romeo, Oh Romeo! No one is complaining about your high-pitched voice. In fact, who cares about those memes on the Internet stating: “They call me Romeo, but I sing like Juliet.” Haters!
“It is something that people have mentioned to me, and I think that the difference between [when Im] singing and talking is because when I sing, I try to sing with a feeling that I dont have when Im talking because I sound very hoarse. [Singing is] very organic to me.
Although the half-Dominican and half-Puerto Rican confessed that he’s not the biggest fan of his voice, it’s no doubt that he’s still on top of the world.
The King of Bachata, as he is known worldwide, recently made history at the Yankee Stadium with two sold-out concerts in July. Its been 40 years since a Latino sensation last showcased at the location, since Fania All-Stars in 1973 to be exactand Romeo Santos nailed it.
I felt proud, representing Latinos those two nights, the artist continued. I felt like the spokesperson, the superhero of a community, of a culture and of a genre called Bachata, the 33-year-old “Odio” singer said.
He told the HuffPost: “I feel proud to be able to say that Im a part of very short list of artists who have completed a feat of this magnitude and Im the first Latino to do it. Its a huge honor.”
