Bronx-born Dominican star Prince Royce is busy preparing his first English-language album, and he has unveiled the first song from the record, a ballad called 'Addicted.'

The sparse track is built around acoustic guitar with string accents and little else except Royce's voice, as he sings about the girl who has made him feel addicted.

"You could be my little coffee bean and I will be the moon," he promises. The arrangement is a bit plain, but it's a good showcase for Royce's silky soft vocals. He continues:

"Let’s rent a movie tonight and snuggle up inside / And when the credits arrive / I’ll be by your side, letting you know / I am addicted to your touch / No other woman’s made me want it this much / I cannot resist the warmth of your hips / A single serving's never enough / Cause I'm addicted to your touch."

The song is gentle and sweet, if perhaps a bit too old-fashioned. We're looking forward to hearing more from Prince Royce's English debut, which comes out in early 2012. In the meantime, he'll be hitting the road with Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias. Royce is also nominated for an award at the 2011 Latin Grammys, which would add to an award collection that already includes multiple Billboard Latin Music Awards.
