" Miguelito" back from
Move over, Justin Bieber - Miguelito is all grown up and ready to become the next big teen idol.
Okay, he's still only 14. But Miguelito, who became a singing sensation in his native Puerto Rico at just 7 years old, is currently preparing to release his eighth album, "Here To Stay" - his first English-language CD.
"The new project is really different so fans will be amazed," he says.
"My last seven albums were more merengue, bachata, reggaeton and salsa. But on this new album we're going to have more party songs, starting with the first single, 'Swaggin.' "
Miguelito proved he had swag even as a baby-face youngster. He's the youngest person to win a Latin Grammy - at the tender age of nine- for Best Latin Children's Album in 2008.
"When I started singing, one of my first goals was to win a Grammy," says Miguelito, whose real name is Miguel A. Valenzuela Morales.
"That's the best award you can get in the music business. So when I won, it only made me realize that I have to keep on working more and more."
And he's not just a singer, he's also a businessman. Miguelito has launched a clothing line, Heir, as well as branded his name for hair gel products and even kids' vitamins.
"Right now it's all about the music and I want to be the best artist that I can be," he said.
