Ronaldo announced the news in order to end the week long speculation about his relationship status including rumors that he had begun dating Real Madrid TV reporter, Lucia Villalon. Days after Ronaldo won his second consecutive FIFA Ballon d’Or trophy and was photographed celebrating on a private plane with Villalon, Shayk unfollowed her longtime beau on Twitter and is now in the middle of a love triangle with Latino singers Marc Anthony and Romeo Santos.Shayk, 29, still has a bright future despite the world’s greatest soccer star on her arm.Once you know a bit about his credentials, it’s less surprising to learn that he sold out Yankee Stadium in 2014. But tonight, Santos is here to analyze the response to a new song, “El Amigo,” featuring Julio Iglesias, at a listening party a couple of days before ’s official release.When the song is over, Santos, who is 36, turns and faces his chair toward the couch, where four journalists, including me, are seated. I’m trying to word this so it doesn’t sound arrogant, but I’m just being transparent: To me, it’s one of my most genius records. The fact that y’all are listening and you can’t figure it out.“Tell me what you think,” he coaxes, while sitting back and folding his hands. If I tell you, or if you guess, and you listen to the record again, you realize that the reason why you don’t get it is because it was put together in such a subliminal way that you’re not supposed to get it right away.” Iglesias sings, which translates as: “Ardent, hyperactive, adventurer / A buddy in my dreams / How influential is he.”) Santos, a self-proclaimed perfectionist, says he wanted to challenge himself to write a song about the male anatomy and have it “not be vulgar.” While the topic is a first for him musically, it’s a classic Romeo Santos move: lyrics about indecent proposals that brush up against braggadocio and hover between silly and sincere, complete with a perfectly placed wink to let you know he’s in on the joke.We all go around and offer our best interpretations of “El Amigo.” He smiles. Santos’s albums are Pop Psychology 101, often probing the unexpected underpinnings of romantic trysts.
Santos, who’s become famous for infusing falsetto vocals and hip-hop rhythms into traditional bachata music, isn’t here today to clink drinks and enjoy himself, even though he has a lot to celebrate.He grew up studying the lyrics on the back of his mother’s ) and Manuel Alejandro.Yet he never had aspirations to become a performer. “So there was really no room for desire, just based on the fact that I didn’t think I would be capable of really entertaining a crowd.” When he and his cousin Henry would put on what he calls “small family events,” he would hold back."I hate it when they make it a competition though, because it's really totally different worlds.She's doing big things and if I wouldn't have had four concerts I would have probably been at one of her [dates] just enjoying her show." The collective is touring in support of their fifth album, The Last, which has already spawned four hit singles, from the Akon-assisted "All Up 2 You" to current chart-topper "Dile al Amor." "Dile al Amor" is their fourth song to top the Latin charts.
