ABOUT TITO NIEVES:
Humberto Nieves, (Río Piedras, Puerto Rico, June 4, 1959), better known as Tito Nieves, is a Puerto Rican salsa singer of American origin, known by the nickname El Pavarotti de la Salsa. Born in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico and raised in the USA. UU., Tito Nieves began his career while he was participating in Orquesta Cimarrón, a group originally from New York. In 1977, he teamed up with singer Héctor Lavoe and his Orchestra and joined the Conjunto Clásico. Later, Nieves decided to start his solo career in 1987, apart from singing salsa in English. He is known for his hits such as El Amor Más Bonito, Sleepwalker, and salsa hit in English, I Like It Like That.
In 1988 he was presented with the opportunity to record for the RMM label. His first big success for the company was the theme “Sleepwalker”, a composition of Leo Casino, which appears on his first album for RMM, entitled “The Classic” which reached a gold record. With this album, Tito Nieves definitely imposed his interpretative style, launching himself to conquer the international markets, setting the tone for other artists that later form the core of what is known as “The Sound of New York”, championed by RMM.
”I want to sing”, the second album for RMM in 1989, brought a pleasant surprise. The theme in English “I’ll Always Love You”, brought to the salsa style, becomes a hit with English-language radio stations. Thanks to this and other themes, the album reached the numbers to prove it as a Gold Record. With this production, Tito Nieves broadened horizons by making the famous “crossover” to the Anglo-Saxon market.
His third production “Let me live” in 1991 reached a platinum record, including the hits “De mí enamórate”, “Te amo”, “Déjame vivir”, “Almohada” and “How To Keep The Music Playing”. Its fourth recording was sent in June of 1993 with the title “Puzzle (The Puzzle)”. Inspired by the success of his songs in English, Tito decided to include two songs in this language “Can You Stop The Rain” and “You Bring Me Joy”. In 1995 he released his fifth album, “Un tipo común”, which was produced in Puerto Rico by Cuto Soto and had arrangements by Ramón Sánchez, Julito Alvarado, Louis García and Cuto himself. The production included the song “No me vuelvo a enamorar” by Mexican singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel and with arrangements by Sergio George. Another one of the surprises of the album was the version of Tito of the classic subject of Selena “It does not have me more”. Tito Nieves definitely had a strong impact on the Anglo-Saxon market with his sixth production recorded in English “I Like It Like That”. This subject took him to great scenarios such as the VIBE program of the UPN television network. The hits from the album Fabricando Fantasías (2004) include Fabricando Fantasias and Ya No Queda Nada with La India, Nicky Jam, and K-Mil. In 2005, he released Hoy, Mañana y Siempre that contains the hits Esa Boquita, Si No Fuera El y Tu Belleza. In 2007, he released Classical Songs by Marco Antonio Solís, a tribute to the Mexican singer-songwriter Marco Antonio Solís.
