Xtreme was an American music group consisting of members Danny D (born as Danny Mejia on July 23, 1985) and Steve Styles (born as Steven Tejada on November 25, 1985) of Dominican descent. The group focuses on the Latin genre bachata. Xtreme was formed in 2003 and since then has enjoyed success among Hispanic United States. The Original line up included Elvis Rosario, but he left after 2005 or 2006.

Beginnings

The group's first album, X-treme was released in 2005 and reached #14 on the Top

"Haciendo Historia", the group's second album, was released in late 2006 and peaked at #13 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart. The single "Shorty Shorty" has enjoyed similar success reaching #1 on the Billboard Latin Tropical Airplay chart and #2 on the Hot Latin Tracks chart.

Their latest album, "Chapter Dos", was released in 2008. Their lead single "Through That Window (Enamorando Estoy)" was a hit but did not perform as well as their previous single, "Shorty Shorty". "Lloro y Lloro" was therefore selected as a second single and given the success, an eight one, "Baby, Baby".

Discography

Media

On May 7, 2009, Xtreme premiered in a new reality show for Spanish cable network Mun2, On The Verge. On the Verge had the highest rated premiere in 2009, among any of Mun2 original shows.

"The first cycle of 8 episodes follows the day-to-day lives of the multiplatinum duo Xtreme. The series captures Danny D and Steve Styles as the Xtreme team navigates the bumpy road to success in the music industry while juggling their real lives in the Boogie Down Bronx." --Diamante Pictures[citation needed]
