Soy El Mismo (English: "I'm the Same") is the third studio album by American singer Prince Royce. The album was released on October 8, 2013, by Sony Music Latin and became Royce's third number 1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart in the United States. With Soy el Mismo, Royce also reached a career-best peak of number 14 on the US Billboard 200.[3]

The album was preceded by the release of its lead single, "Darte un Beso", on July 15, 2013. The single became Royce's fourth to reach number-one on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart in the United States. "Darte un Beso" also reached number-one on multiple Latin music sub-charts in the US and was certified 3× Platinum (Latin) by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[4] Four other singles were released to promote the album between 2014 and 2015: "Te Robaré", "Nada", the title track, and "Solita". The track "Te Regalo el Mar" was made available as an instant digital download with the iTunes Store pre-order of the album.

At the Latin Grammy Awards of 2014, the album received a nomination for Best Contemporary Tropical Album, Royce's second career nomination in the category.[5] Royce was then nominated for three awards at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards: Top Latin Artist, Top Latin Album, and Top Latin Song for "Darte un Beso".[6] The latter won the award for Streaming Song of the Year at the 2014 Latin Billboard Music Awards.
