Diego Boneta lands record deal

Mexican star Diego Boneta has landed a record deal with Sony Music Latin.

The Rock of Ages actor already has an established music career in his native country but he is hoping to have the same success with a newly inked deal with the major music label.


In an interview with Billboard, Boneta says he is eager to launch a successful singing career that is consistent with his acting one.


He says, "The idea is not to simply release an album but create a strategy that's congruent with my career. Diego the actor and Diego the singer are managed completely separate from one another."


Boneta has had roles in TV series Pretty Little Liars and 90210, and he is one of Mexico's biggest stars. He was a finalist on music reality show Codigo F.A.M.A. at age 12, and at 15 had a role on popular soap opera Rebelde.


He's released two successful Spanish-language solo albums, and plans on releasing both an English and Spanish EP with Sony Music in early 2015.
