Prince Royce sings against the ugly standard of 'beauty' women are held to...

While the fashion industry and media require women to look like 16-year-old anorexics, one Puerto Rican singer came out with a song that trashes all that bullshit and speaks of true beauty.

His name is Prince Royce, and he sings bachata. The song I'm referring to is called, Heart Without a Face.



Here are some of the lyrics, and I've translated them for you into English:

Y ya me contaron (They have told me)
Que te acomplejas (You're embarrassed)
de tu imagen (Of your looks)

Y mira (Look into)
el espejo (The mirror)
Que linda eres (See how lovely you are)
sin maquillaje (When you're not made up)

Y si eres gorda o flaca (And whether you are fat or skinny)
Todo eso no me importa a mí (Such things don't matter to me)
Y tampoco soy perfecto (I also am imperfect)
Sólo sé que te quiero así (I only know I love you)

Y el corazón no tiene cara (The heart has no face)
Y te prometo que lo nuestro (I promise what we have)
Nunca va a terminar (Is never going to end)
Y el amor vive en el alma (Love lives in the soul)

Ni con deseos sabes que nada de ti va a cambiar (And you know not even wishing, nothing about you is going to change)
Prende una vela, rézale a Dios (Light a candle, pray to God)
Y dale gracias que tenemos ese lindo corazón (And thank God that we have this beautiful heart)

Prende una vela, pide perdón (Light a candle; beg forgiveness)
Y por creer que tu eres fea te dedico esta canción (And for thinking that you're ugly, I dedicate this song to you)

(Repeat)
