Puerto Rican salsa star, Frankie Negron, creates a new brand of modern Latin music by fusing his roots and upbringing together into a harmonious sound. Taking influence from American icons like Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, and combining pop, rock, gospel, R&B, hip-hop and reggaeton into his contemporary salsa tunes, Negron is not your typical salsa star. Signed at the age of 17, Negron has had an extensive relationship with the music industry. He released seven albums between 1997 and 2003 alone. Negron has earned Grammy nominations, Billboard Award nods, and two Premio Lo Nuestro Awards for “Song of the Year.” He also boasts four Platinum album awards to his credit, proving his innovation well received by his audiences.
