The former ringleader of bachata stars Aventura isn't known as the king of the romantic Dominican ballad for nothing: The deeper and more heartfelt the songs, the stronger and more expressive the Bronx-born singer's weepy voice grows. Although this is only his second solo set, guest spots from major names like Drake, Nicki Minaj and even Carlos Santana show how far Santos' reach already extends. He confidently flirts with other genres on the lite-dancehall groove "Animales" and the reggae-ish "Fui a Jamaica," but he never wavers too far from bachata's core themes of love, heartbreak and loyalty. Swoon now, or forever hold your peace.
