We can’t help but laugh at the real names of some of our favorite artists
The one you know as Prince Royce was born Geoffrey Royce Rojas…still somehow regal.
Work with what you’re given. We’ve all heard this advice before. Well, these artists took their given names and hid them away like an old Halloween costume, in a closet…then locked the door. But these real names are just too good to keep locked away.
Do you think we’d be hearing “feat. Armando” after every hit song? Would the ladies melt as quickly to the sounds of Geoffrey? And one can’t help but wonder if Elmer would go on to sell over 30 million records worldwide…
We’ll never know.
Here are some albums, re-imagined with these artists’ given names. Thank the guy who invented stage names!
Omega = Antonio Peter de la Rosa
Chayanne = Elmer Figueroa Arce
Pitbull = Armando Christian Perez
