The hype is most certainly building for Romeo Santos’ debut solo album. Set to drop in November, his Formula Vol. 1 already includes the smash hit “You” and the upcoming single “Promise,” featuring none other than Usher!
A tender bilingual balled, “Promise” actually blends Romeo and Usher’s styles very well. There are tropical guitars, pop synthesizers, and hints of piano for an added touch of romance.
Both singers seem to be very excited about the track and are already in the midst of filming a video with director Anthony Mandler (who helmed Jay-Z’s“Run This Town“). Appearing in a brief “Promise’ promo, Usher said,
“Being able to not only see [Romeo] perform, but also hear his music, I thought this is the thing that people will remember. That’s what we’re doing here today, making history.”
Romeo seemed be all smiles while shooting scenes amidst the New York rooftops. And if all goes according to plan, his new song “Promises” to be quite a hit when it arrives on iTunes September 2.
