Prince Royce is starting to see the fruits of his American crossover labor…
The 25-year-old Dominican American singer-songwriter has roared on Billboard’s Artist 100 at No. 78.
Prince Royce’s rise on the chart is boosted by the growing success of his first English-language hit, “Stuck On a Feeling,” featuring Snoop Dogg.
The Artist 100 provides the first weekly ranking dedicated to measuring artist activity across Billboard’s most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Top Album Sales chart and the Social 50 chart.
The Artist 100 blends data measuring album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
“Stuck On a Feeling” shifts into high gear on the Billboard Hot 100, jumping 78-63 in its third week on the chart. Social metrics account for the majority of his Artist 100 standing (41 percent), as he blasts 38-13 on the Social 50. Airplay follows at 29 percent, as the track gains by 19 percent to 29 million in all-format radio audience, according to Nielsen Music. Digital song sales account for 19 percent of his Artist 100 total, with the song up by 33 percent to 21,000 sold in the week ending Jan. 11.
“Stuck On a Feeling” previews Prince Royce’s forthcoming first English-language album.
During his young career, he has tallied three No. 1s on Top Latin Albums beginning in 2011.
