Romeo Santos hit us with a new album that lifts up the legacy of bachata and the people that came before him. What choice did we have but to stop everything and do a deep dive? On Utopía Romeo takes us to bachata school – lifting up the legends and the greats on whose shoulders he stands, as well as the old-school sounds each of them pioneered. Plus the first new Aventura song in a decade? What a beautiful gift.
Featuring music by Romeo Santos with El Chaval de la Bachata, Raulín Rodriguez, Elvis Martinez, Teodoro Reyes, Monchy y Alexandra, Antony “El Mayimbe” Santos and Aventura.
