A former member of the Dominican-American boy band Aventura, vocalist Toby Love performs a unique pop style that mixes R&B, hip-hop, and elements of the traditional Dominican musical form bachata. Dubbed "crunkchata," the music often features the Bronx, New York-based vocalist singing in Spanish as well as English. Citing such influences as Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, and Juan Luis Guerra, Love embarked on a solo career, releasing Toby Love on Sony in 2006. It included the Billboard Hot 100 single "Tengo un Amor." He stayed with Sony for 2008's Love Is Back, 2011's La Voz de la Juventud, and 2013's Amor Total, all of which landed on the Billboard Latin and tropical albums charts. He had his biggest hit to date, though, with Bachata Nation, released by Select-O-Hits in 2016. Featuring the single "No Le Eches la Culpa," it reached number five on the Latin chart and became a tropical number one.
