Tuesday Tunes

Romeo Santos is making headlines these days as he ventures out into his solo career and collaborates with some of hip-hop and R&B's top artists. Mixing his signature bachata flair with some R&B, he is showing fans a whole new side on his debut album, Formula, Vol. 1.
Here’s what MTV.com posted about Romeo’s latest collaboration with Lil Wayne:  

Hoping to spread his unique sound and style to a mainstream audience, Santos enlisted Lil Wayne for his latest single, "All Aboard." 

"This song 'All Aboard,' that tune allowed me to expand and kind of offer my audience something totally different because it's not bachata — I'm singing English and that was really fun," Santos recently told MTV News. "I was a little nervous about that, but people actually really accepted it." 

Santos and Weezy recently shot the video for "All Aboard" in Miami; he called the clip "sexy," "seductive" and "elegant," but also revealed that this collaboration came very close to not making his album.

Wayne isn't the only artist Santos pulled in for his album. On his last single, "Promise," he teamed up with Usher, who last week joined him onstage at Santos' first of three sold-out shows at New York's Madison Square Garden.

What do you think of Romeo Santos & Lil Wayne’s “All Aboard?”

Tuesday Tunes

Today’s Tuesday Tunes is one of Neil Diamond’s classic hits, “Sweet Caroline.” Caroline Kennedy was the inspiration behind this famous song, which Neil Diamond revealed to Caroline on her 50th birthday in 2007. He wrote the song a few years after seeing a photo of the president’s daughter in her riding gear standing next to her pony. Diamond said, “It was such an innocent, wonderful picture, I immediately felt there was a song in there.”

Happy Tuesday, enjoy the tunes!
