Author and composer of his own lyrics, Royce was born May 11 in The Bronx borough of New York. Although he was born an American, he considers him self to be Dominican coming from two Dominican parents. He was in his elementary schools chorus in the 4th grade but it wasnt until he turned 13 that he realized that he had a talent that not many people had. He then began to enter school talent shows, and take a few vocal lessons in his schools choir. Like any other teenager Royce enjoys hanging out with his friends, watching baseball, playing video games, and writes poetry and music as one of his hobbies. Royce has a love for Bachata and R&B music, keeping artists like Aventura and Usher, as an inspiration to his music. Although Royce had an interest in singing R&B, he wanted to take his music to the Latin community knowing that he truly had Hispanic blood. He could never find the right genre of music to enter into, until the new era of Reggaeton was discovered. A combination of Reggaeton and R&B was the creation that Royce began to adapt to as he sang to a Reggaeton instrumental. He then met Jino, and began to experiment with their unique mixes, showing the more sensitive, and emotional side of Reggaeton. Royce has the challenge to keep up with his music to try to accomplish the goal of simply showing the public that Reggaeton can also give a significant message to the troubles that the world is going through...
