A Short Guide to Romeo Santos’ ‘Formula’ Series


Formula Vol. 1 (2011)

Santos could have easily tried to make a solo debut that catered to U.S. radio. Instead, he got Usher to sing bachata — and went platinum three times.

Formula Vol. 2 (2014)

This time, he got Drake and Nicki Minaj to sing in Spanish, solidifyin­g Santos’ place as bachata’s leading man and leaving fans hungry for more.

Formula Vol. 3 (2022)

The first preview of his latest installmen­t is “Sus Huellas” — a lovelorn ballad brightened by a light synth arrangemen­t that he describes as the “best of both worlds.”
