Romeo Santos Net Worth

Romeo Santos’ net worth is $30 million. He made the vast majority of his money from his music career, specifically his solo artist career.

Romeo Santos Early Life

Santos was born in the Bronx, New York in the United States to a Dominican father and a Puerto Rican mother. He had a modest upbringing with his mother staying at home and his father working as a construction worker. Romeo credits his parents with his love for music as they played Latin flavors of music in their home at a young age. Santos began his singing in a church choir.

Romeo Santos Career

Romeo was the lead singer of the Bronx-based Aventura, a self-created band, founded by Romeo Santos, his cousin Henry Santos and Lenny and Max Santos in 1994. Max is also from the Bronx but he’s a Dominican Republic native with Rican roots in his family tree going back generations before him; this helped explain why bachata music has always been so close to home for them! The three other founding members come together on vocals plus guitar/ keyboards while adding synth/ bass lines to make their sound more modern sounding than what you’d typically hear at this time.

In 1999, when hip hop got popular again their mission was to combine more popular rap and R&B with bachata music. This new vibe and vision they created led them into being only the second band of all time to sell out Madison Square Garden. In 2002, their song ‘Obsesión’ shot to the top of international music charts. This newfound fame generated multiple top 10’s and became huge successes in many different countries. Songs such as “Cuando Volverás”, “Un Beso”, Los Infieles”, “El Perdedor”, Dile Al Amor, “Por Un Segundo”, and “Amor de Madre”” along with “Obsesión had them selling out crowds all over the world.

Romeo Santos Solo Career

In 2011, the band was put “on pause to do individual projects.” A blessing in disguise as this launched Romeon’s solo career and was the beginning of some very lucrative years. The same year Sony Records signed Santos and he released his debut single “You” off his first album ‘Formula Vol. 1.’ His second song featured a collaboration with singer/songwriter and R&B legend Usher. The song named “Promise” shot to the top of the Tropical Songs and Hot Latin Songs charts.

2012 brought more fame as he sold out Madison Square Garden back-to-back-to-back nights. To top it off, he was the first Latin artist to headline at ‘The Garden.’ In 2014, ‘Formula Vol. 2’ was released and featured collaborations with Santana, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Kevin Hart and Tego Calderon. He continued to make albums, dropping one in 2017 and 2019.

He launched his YouTube channel in 2005 and Romeo currently has 200 million subscribers with hundreds of millions of views on numerous videos. One of his videos has been viewed 350 million times on YouTube.
