ALTER EGO encapsulates a two-year creative journey of musical expression that ends up in a fantastic labyrinth of romance in its different forms of expression. The double album is comprised of “Genesis” and “Enigma”. In “Genesis”, Royce expands upon the sound and influences that kick-started his career, this time with more mature concepts and lyrics, while also experimenting with more traditional elements and switching things up with interesting collabs. In “Enigma”, Royce submerges himself in and experiments with different musical worlds, he takes risks creating more artistic, innovative, non-censored music. The result is a masterpiece that represents the best of all worlds – a powerful Latin (Spanish-language with some English) double album destined to become a classic, where we get to experience a rich musical adventure that includes everything from bachata to urban to pop to R&B.

Prince Royce is a finalist for the 2020 Billboard Awards in the Tropical Artist of the Year category.
