Dominican singer Karlos Rose releases debut album

Posted by PanamericanWorld on June 09, 2015

Dominican singer Karlos Rose has released his debut album "Geminis," a collection of songs that combine bachata with pop rock, R&B and Mexican accordion, while reflecting the personality of people like him who are "versatile" and prefer "to be different."

The young artist got started in the music world four years ago when he posted on a social network a video of himself singing the Bruno Mars number "Just the Way You Are," which was such a hit that it won the attention of his current agent, who suggested that he reedit it with a bachata rhythm, Rose told Efe in an interview.

After performing "Niña de Mi Corazon" by the Mexican Horacio Palencia, "I'll Be There" by the Jackson Five and "Infiel" by the Colombian group Daniel Calderon and Los Gigantes, Rose went on to "experiment" and write his own songs.

And so he created "Geminis," his debut disc that went on sale last Tuesday featuring 14 romantic numbers with a bachata beat, a genre for which he feels a special preference since it recalls the land of his birth, which he left for the U.S.A. when he was only 9.

"Bachata is something you have to feel in order to sing it or dance it...it's also a style that very easy to mix with others," the 20-year-old singer said.

Rose, whose real name is Carlos de la Rosa, said the lyrics of his songs are inspired by true stories based on his own experiences or what his friends tell him about love.

"I focus a lot on people and try to express what it's like for them being under pressure or being in love," the singer said.
