Born in Havana, Cuba, Rey Ruiz has been a prominent figure in the romantic salsa scene since the early 1990s, earning the title of "El Elvis de la Salsa" for some and "El Bombón de la Salsa" for others. His record career began with an album that bore his nickname “Rey Ruiz” in 1992, in the 1950s mambo style and went platinum. He also won the Billboard and "Lo Nuestro" awards with several successful songs. He then participated in the “Los Soneros de Hoy” project, which was in honor of the salsa pioneers of the 1960s and 1970s. The project album included Ruiz singing “Compone un Son.” Ruiz's second album, “Mi Media Mitad” reached the Billboard Latin List, and one of his songs, "If You Are Asked," went to the top of the list of the Dial Chain in Europe and went platinum in Puerto Rico and the United States and gold in Colombia. His third album, “En Body and Soul,” included the popular songs "We Are Alone" and “Come Back with Me.” His album “Destino” marked his debut as a songwriter. His hit songs through the years include "My Angel," "You Don't Know," “I loved her and loved her,” the duet with Brazilian singer José Augusto “Siempre Mía,” "Move It," "Friends of Truth," and "Since You Are Not."
